Pneumatic Actuator for Automatic Measurement of Ballscrew Nuts


The Challenge:
Pitch diameter measurement in ballscrew nuts on automatic machine. Match gauging of the ball circuit allows the optimum ball sizes to be selected for the required preload of the ballscrew bearing assembly.

The Solution:
The solution developed by Bowers' Specials Applications Team comprised an Actuating Unit and Ballscrew Head, fitted to customers' fully automatic machine.

Actuating Unit:
• Gauge body with constant measuring pressure and fast operation
• Pneumatic cylinder (3 Bar pressure required) to actuate the unit
• Supplied with Sylvac transducer probe and D302 multiplexer for output to PLC
• Internal workings enclosed in protective cover
• Mounting holes on rear of actuator body to allow fixing into customers assembly

Ballscrew Head:
• Precision 3 point measuring head with tungsten carbide ball contacts to locate in ball circuit and replicate final application using ball sizes matching the nominal ball size of the particular ballscrew assembly
• Various heads available customised to suit BCD, ball size, lead and direction (RH/LH)

Features:
• Automatic or semi-automatic measurement of internal features
• Can be used for threads, grooves, splines, etc

Potential Industries:
• Automotive - ballscrew manufacture/assembly
• Aerospace
• Machine Tools
• Bearing Manufacture
