Aisin, subsidiary of the Toyota Group, utilise form, surface and contour measuring machines from Carl Zeiss /Accretech for quality assurance. Aisin use Rondcom 72A measuring machines from Carl Zeiss/Accretech for accurate roundness measurements. The Rondcom 72A measuring machine has a measuring accuracy of 0.06µm. The CNC function enables fully automatic measurements of features and elements. As a spindle form tester, Rondcom 72A can be used for different size workpieces, from small to large bulky parts weighing up to 60kg.
The Surfcom 1800D measuring station from Carl Zeiss/Accretech is suitable for measuring contours and surface quality. It features the functions of a surface measuring machine combined with a contour measuring machine. With integrated TIMS software, the Surfcom 1800 measuring station uses a uniform software platform to ensure data exchange and full compatibility. Aisin have invested in a new surface measuring station, Surfcom 1500SD.
Equipped with linear motor technology in the drive unit, the Surfcom 1500SD surface measuring station has effective vibration damping, high accuracy and speed. The linear motor technology prevents wear and tear on critical parts. As a result of the high number of parts, Aisin decided to perform the measurements on two separate machines.
