Air-Actuated Connectors

CTS Connect air-actuated internal or external connectors are for sealing smooth, rough or threaded circular features of a part. The connectors consist of an air-driven internal piston that compresses the urethane seal material against the surface of the part, creating a tight seal that meets all test pressure requirements, regardless of surface shape or finish. The connectors are ideal for leak testing, filling, cleaning, burst or pressure testing, flushing, charging, integrity, sealing and part handling in a variety of industries including automotive, medical, appliance, industrial and military.

Digital Readout System

The Quadra-Chek 300 is a digital readout system now with image archiving. This capability allows operators to store measured part features, including test data and descriptive text, as JPG. images for documenting, testing and quality inspection purposes. The system uses proprietary technology to combine multiple video measuring functions in a single display unit, including video display, cross line generator and automated edge detection for improved accuracy, increased measuring speed and reliability. It has a high-resolution LCD monitor, plus integrated direct camera input that provides live feed video display. The system’s programming features include alphanumeric program naming, operator messages and arrow-to-target stage directions to operators.

Finite Element Analysis Software Suite

Abaqus Version 6.7, a finite element analysis software suite, now has a new architecture for high-performance linear dynamics, advanced capabilities for composites simulation and nonlinear materials modeling. The software also has an intuitive and customizable interface for accelerated model building and results visualization, as well as two new interfaces for CAD associativity. The new linear dynamics architecture is fully integrated with existing nonlinear capabilities, enabling engineers to share model data and results across workgroups. The release provides a unified simulation environment for general-purpose structural integrity, power train durability, noise and vibration behavior, crashworthiness, occupant safety and tire-roadway interaction.

Pressure Gages

The 1200 Series (ASME grade 2A) pressure gages provide the capabilities necessary to monitor pressures in nearly every type of process. In basic applications, the Type 1259 is the economical choice. In more rigorous installations, the Type 1279 Duragauge pressure gage is designed for use in the presence of harsh pressure media, fire hazards or extreme cycle volumes. Add pulsation and vibration, and the Type 1279 Duragauge Plus! pressure gage offers patented technology to dampen pointer flutter without the need for liquid fill.

Turnkey Inspection

Turnkey inspection systems are designed and built to meet the customer’s specific inspection application, for parts as small as bolts and nuts or as large as I beams or engine blocks. These systems are often designed around eddy current-based inspection products, but also can include magnetic flux leakage technology, ultrasonic technology or vision systems, all operating together to perform a fully automated inspection process. The systems can be integrated into any manufacturing operation so there is minimum information lag between when a defect occurs and when it is detected.

Runout Measurement

The Targa III Dynamic Runout instrument measures runout on high-speed spindles at speeds up to 300,000 RPM. The new instrument has a noncontact capacitive sensor and a digital display with multiple measurement modes. The dynamic runout mode (DRO) presents a continuously updating TIR measurement that does not require manual reset when the TIR decreases. This feature allows measurement of DRO across a range of spindle speeds. Results of this test indicate the optimal speed for production operation of the spindle.

Microspectroscopy System

The MSV-300 Series microspectroscopy system provides transmittance/reflectance measurements of microscopic sample sites for a range of wavelengths, from the ultraviolet to the near infrared. Conventional measurements require samples with dimensions comparable to a millimeter-sized optical beam. The series can measure color, film thickness and other spectral properties of a microscopic area for either large or small samples with a minimum spatial resolution of 30 microns. The optional automated X-Y-Z stage provides multi-point or mapping measurements for surface analysis of samples. The series has a spectral measurement range that offers continuous measurements between 250 and 2,000 nanometers (MSV-370). An integrated CCD camera allows verification of the analysis site and sample position while defining the sample aperture on the software system. All microscope operations are PC-controlled through the Spectra Manager software interface.

Manual X-Y Scanner

The Glider is a manual 2-axis encoding scanner designed primarily for the inspection of composite and aluminum aircraft parts such as fuselages. The instrument has a cost-efficient design, multi-technology capability and lightweight but rugged construction. It is compatible with phased array (PA) or conventional ultrasonic (UT) probes, as well as conventional eddy current (EC) and eddy current array (ECA) probes. Both axes offer a free-running, incremental or lock mode. The standard, pivot-equipped suction cup pods enable contour following on curved surfaces while the optional magnetic mounting pods extend the versatility of this scanner to corrosion-mapping applications involving ferromagnetic materials. With a light, aluminum frame and removable index arm, the instrument can be transported or reassembled for use on multiple parts. It is available in three sizes, providing scan areas of 46 by 46 centimeters, 61 by 61 centimeters, and 91 by 91 centimeters. It will interface with the OmniScan modular flaw detector or any other data acquisition system.
