Thread Inspection Added to OASIS Inspection Systems
|Date:||June 28, 2010|
High-Speed, Non-Contact Thread Inspection: George Products Company, Inc. of Middletown, DE announces the addition of thread inspection to its OASIS Inspection Systems.
OASIS Inspection Systems, manufactured in Middletown, DE by George Products Company, Inc. are widely known for their ability to measure all external dimensions on the profile view of parts - simultaneously and instantly. The speed at which the OASIS operates is a trademark feature of the machines. Today, George Products Company, Inc. announced the addition of thread measurement to their OASIS Inspection Systems.
The OASIS thread tool measures key components of thread geometry with the same speed as all other dimensions in the OASIS - everything on the screen is done in less than a second. Measurements include Major, Minor, and Pitch diameters. In addition, Pitch distance, and Crest & Root Truncation are also included. The OASIS thread tool works on 60-degree “V” form straight threads and the tolerances can be individually set for each characteristic measured.
In operation, all an operator needs to do is set the threaded part into the OASIS field of view. The inspected parameters immediately display on the OASIS system monitor which graphically shows the status of every component in simple traffic light colors: Green is good, Yellow is a warning that it’s getting close to the limits, Red is out of tolerance.
Dimensions can be saved in the included OASIS Inspection Report spreadsheet, imported in real-time to SPC, or the thread tool can be used on the fly to quickly monitor in-process thread production. Also, sorting threaded parts and using the OASIS to identify threads in large batches are other advantages of instantaneous thread measurement.
Founded in 1951 and located in Middletown, Delaware, George Products Company, Inc. is the manufacturer of OASIS Inspection Systems. OASIS’ are full-featured machine vision inspection systems designed to measure multiple profile dimensions on parts, accurate to +/- 0.0001”, with all the measurements done in less than a second.
