All precision measuring centers in the P-series can be equipped with a high-precision roughness measurement device. This roughness measurement can be integrated fully automatically into both the gearing measurement and the coordinate measurement, allowing all measurements to be conducted in one clamping.
With the new miniature roughness probe, even gearings as small as module 0.9 can be measured fully automatically. This is possible thanks to a specially developed design that ensures contact with the largest possible portion of the gearing surface.
Alongside the straight standard design for pinions, an angled probe is available for bevel gear measurement.
All roughness parameters can be scanned quickly and easily on shafts as well as on the bearing surfaces of gearings.
Roughness measurement on Klingelnberg P machines is proven on several hundred machines over the last years. With the precise CNC-controlled measuring runs reproducibilities of 0.01 µm are achieved.
In connection with the probe change magazine, not only is the roughness probe automatically changed, the plug connector for the sensor system is also inserted fully automatically.
The roughness measurement curves and parameters for roughness and contact ratio are clearly displayed on the screen and in the measurement report – in the same way as evaluation of the gear geometry.
