LM with hand controllerCome see us at our Metrology Lunch & Learn Workshop at our Dayton, Ohio production facility from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m, Wednesday and/or Thursday, October 2 and 3, 2019. We'd love to have you both days but understand if you are only able to make one! Manufacturers are invited to attend the event and eat lunch while listening to our guest speakers from Honda and Renishaw. Visitors will also get the chance to see firsthand the unique technology behind AIMS’s Revolution Series 5-axis LM and HB CMMs.

Lunch & Learn Workshops:

Wednesday, October 2 at 11:30am :

Dan Sokolow, Engineering Coordinator for Honda Transmissions Manufacturing, will discuss the cost analysis and ROI behind replacing custom gauging with the HB, the industry’s only mobile 5-axis CMM, and its potential for automation. Here is the agenda for Dan's discussion:

  • Hard gauging replaced by using a CMM
  • Data collection - what are we doing with it?
  • Cost analysis of a CMM versus custom gauging
  • Potential for automation (robot load and unload) 
  • The case for letting shop floor operators use machines for instant results

 

Thursday, October 3 at 11:30am:

Ken Bergler, Renishaw's Chief Industrial Metrologist, will focus his discussions on REVO 2 5-axis scanning and demonstrate SFP2's 5-axis capabilities along with advances in probe heads. Here is the agenda for his discussion:

  • Demonstration of 5-Axis scanning capabilities & best practices
    • Blended Scanning
    • Valve Seats & Guide measurement
    • Perfect Path CMM dynamic error reduction
  • Renishaw Surface Finish 2 (SFP2) demonstration
    • 6-Axis measurement capabilities
    • "Correlating" with a hand gauge
    • Rechecking failed callouts autonomously
  • Revo attachment discussions
    • RVP (Renishaw Vision probe)
  • Questions & Answers

 

HB 5.9.4Events you won't want to miss:

  • Live Demonstrations featuring AIMS's laboratory grade LM CMM with Renishaw's 5-axis REVO 2 head and the mobile HB CMM built and designed with Renishaw's PH20 6-axis touch trigger system.
  • Free Consultation: Bring a part, drawing or engineering model and our team of engineering specialists lead by Steve Cichanowicz , will be there to analyze, review and provide recommendations for best measurement practices for parts inspection.
  • Tours of our facility upon request

“We are encouraging manufacturers to bring a part for inspection evaluation,” says Mark Gearding, vice-president of AIMS. “This type of analysis helps us to determine whether or not the company needs a lab-grade or mobile 5-axis CMM. It also helps us to evaluate what type of probe head the part needs and what goals the company has in terms of tolerances, throughput and automation.”
