Torus’ Semi-Automatic Optical Inspect Gauge has been developed to provide a fast, non-contact, traceable measurement solution for neck finish and body dimensions. Using optical telecentric lens technology the system takes advantage of self-teach profile functions for part program generation. 

Key Benefits

  • Quick-snap pre-programmed industry standard neck features. 
  • GaugeXplorer Operating System enables fast part program generation completed on the gauge, Industry Standard and fully programmable features can be renamed to local measurement feature requirements at customer facility. 
  • Fast cycle times. 
  • Numeric and minic display screens. 
  • Utilisation of state-of-the-art optical non-contact measurement capability. 
  • Interchangeable location tooling to cover industry standard neck finishes. 
  • Bench mounted for laboratory environments, hardened for shop floors, with optional workbenches provided by Torus.
  • CSV data output and flexible formatting for input into local data handling / control systems at customers facility. 
  • Remote Support Package, which includes automatic gauge monitoring and reporting back to Torus for proactive response. 
  • Measurements traceable and certified to UKAS Standard, with internal Torus annual calibration recall system for continued measurement assurance. 

The system was originally designed for the purpose of dimensional preform inspection but can measure any component within the standard operating technical specification. Quick change location tooling provides the capability to perform dimensional inspection on a wide range of industry standard neck finishes. 

Automatic thread-start routines within the dimensional inspection module remove the requirement for precision orientation loading into the system, with the smart vision technology completing a thread alignment to position the sample for height and diameter feature inspection. 

Quick-snap pre-programmed industry standard neck features reduce part program creation time for new samples, whilst the software package provides a full range of neck and body, diameter, and height programmable features to meet the customer measurement requirements.
