Bowers to demonstrate QC and connective metrology at Control 2020

1 min read

Bowers Group will be showcasing a variety of metrology solutions on Stand 7102 at Control 2020 (Stuttgart, 5-8 May). Visitors will be able to enjoy live demonstrations of data transfer between measurement equipment and applications, showing how Bluetooth IoT and connectivity can improve efficiencies and reduce errors.

The Venture XT, Baty’s multi-sensor vision system will be on the stand, demonstrating the latest Fusion Software release featuring lens error mapping and offline vision/touch-probe programming from CAD. Combined contact and non-contact measurements in the same automated inspection routine, alongside ease-of-use and graphical reporting, make the Venture XT a cost-effective measurement solution for both production cells and QC labs alike.

Richard Grocott, export sales director, says: “Control is a much-anticipated date in our calendar, and the perfect platform to demonstrate how Bowers’ range of bore gauges, micrometers and indicators participate in data exchange. This enables measurement instruments to be easily paired with applications, making receiving data more efficient and improving quality.”

Also on display will be the Baty R400 profile projector with 300 by 150 mm measuring range and FT2-E touchscreen display featuring the newly developed screen-mounted edge sensor. The FT2-E comes with the latest Fusion Software, which enables measurement data points to be taken automatically, removing operator influence and improving repeatability. Furthermore, the 22” touchscreen display allows DXF CAD files to be displayed for profile comparison, and permits dimensioned drawings of measured parts to be generated with ease. The FT2-E readout can also be retrofitted to existing profile projectors, transforming them into high accuracy 2D measuring machines with reporting capabilities, without significant outlay, says Bowers.

Visitors to Control 2020 will also have the chance to see the company’s selection of bespoke equipment for special measurement challenges. Custom solutions designed and developed by the Bowers Group special applications team include those for the measurement of grooves, threads, splines and sphericals, which are fully compatible with the company’s XT range of digital bore gauges, and include optional Bluetooth.
