Nikon iNEXIV enables novel method for measuring the length of free-form springs

Redditch-based seal energising spring manufacturer, Clifford Springs, is using a new, highly accurate, automated procedure on a Nikon Metrology iNEXIV VMA-4540 CNC video measuring machine to determine the length of an irregularly shaped loop of welded coil. The result is equivalent to the circumference of the spring when it eventually strengthens a circular seal. The iNEXIV is more accurate than the former hard gauges. Up to 1,000 successive coordinates around the loop are recorded automatically and subsequently linked to create a series of small, Read more...
