Inspection methods for the complex precision parts of powertrain and transmission systems to drive measurable efficiency in the factory and on the road.

Precision Measurement for High-Performance Components

Components of the powertrain – the drive section – are subject to very stringent production requirements. The tolerances are tight and only allow deviations in the micron range. This is required for optimum use of these high performance components. The precision with which engine blocks and shafts are made, for example, is applied again to an even greater degree in quality assurance. The coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) of the Leitz PMM-C line from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence enable measurement with the required high level of accuracy.

Efficient Engine Block Measurement

Engine block measurement requires a highprecision measuring system, which is why a Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Leitz PMM-Xi and the HP-S-X5 HD fixed sensor system are commonly used for this task. If the measurement processes are to be accelerated, a rotating-indexing joint can be used to save valuable measuring time. The SENMATION sensor interface offers the option of viewing the measuring task from a variety of different perspectives.
