In-Machine Gauging and Detection Products

Embedded measurement tools for in-process applications is a growing demand on the market.


Embedded measurement tools for in-process applications is a growing demand on the market. When a part is being milled or drilled, stopping the process for verification or controlling post process the part is a lost of time. We must keep in mind that cycles time for production is essential.

Controlling a dimension during the operation permits to the production to do faster, better and smarter. The harsh environment of such applications disintegrate very quickly the measurement tools and the probes connected.

The robustness of the LVDT technology is well known in the industry world.

Moreover Feather Touch Probes are ideal for the gauging of high precision components. Long life bearings ensure that the performance of the probes are maintained through millions of cycles in industries producing high volumes of components on short cycle times.

The Solartron Orbit® 3 Digital Measurement System, in conjunction with Solartron’s wide range of transducers, including both contact and non-contact linear measuring transducers (gauging probes), specialist transducers and third party transducer interfaces, provides a limitless set of measuring system solutions, with numerous different interfaces to computers and PLC’s, making Orbit® 3 completely flexible.

Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.
