Air Gaging Large Crankshaft Pins and Mains!
Just finished a large project for a Tier 1 supplier to the Agricultural and Mining industries that manufactures large crankshafts. We used a Stotz MRA unit with 16 air inputs. We are measuring over 180 features including the diameter at 3 positions and at 0 and 90 degrees on the pins and mains. We are also measuring straightness, roundness, and taper as well as keeping track of the serial number from a data matrix engraved on the part that is scanned in using a USB scanner. All of this data is stored in an Excel format on the customers network drive and can easily be retrieved for later use. This system also has full SPC capability including Part Counters, Histograms, Pareto Charts, X Bar/S and X Bar/R charts.
