Automatic thread inspection
The company KORDT GmbH & Co. KG offers with its module TRANSICORD an automatic thread testing unit, which performs a thread test by means of torque measurement and monitoring. Among other things, the thread depth and continuity are checked. The control of this unit was implemented with Bosch-Rexroth components by Quality Automation GmbH. For this purpose, a threaded pin attached to the linear axis is moved in the direction of the thread at a threading speed, screwed in and then, at a higher inspection speed, the inspection program is run. The operator then receives the result of the test. The thread testing unit can be used for different thread sizes.
