Marposs can supply a wide
range of measurement and process control
applications and probes and accessories for machine tools.
These systems are designed to provide metrology lab performances in a
floor environment (high repeatability and accuracy).

Applications on grinders
in-process gauges continuously measure parts during the grinding
process: the machine cycle is adjusted based on the amount of material
stock to be removed and the feed rates are optimized to produce parts
excellent surface finishes and very tight tolerances.
These applications are resistant to the harshest working environments
are available for any type of grinding machine (centerless, cylindrical
grinders, etc. ) both for OD and ID measurements on smooth or
surfaces with quick set-up devices.
wheel balancers are the best
solution to continuously monitor the
grinding wheel condition and immediately compensate any unbalancing
the cycle, improving the surface quality of individual parts, extending
spindle life and reducing the grinder downtime.
Both external (flange type) and internal (spindle type) balancing heads
available, with either hard wired and contactless signal transmission.
acoustic sensors detect changes in the sounds produced during
grinding and provide precise feed rate control when the wheel is
the part or the dresser, thus preventing collisions and detecting
and tool abnormalities, chipped grinding wheels and dresser faults.
The acoustic sensors allow to improve cycle time and reduce costs.
Sensors can be integrated into the in-process measurement and the wheel
Applications on grinders, lathes, milling machines, transfer machines, transfer lines, machining centers, flexible cells
probing systems are used for part dimensional inspection
tool setting for virtually any CNC cutting machine tool.
The line includes both touch probes and non-contact laser systems with
ability to improve production quality and increase machine tool
Installation is easy on new machines as well as in old machines
retrofitting, thanks to the availability of a sw library for several
of numerical controls (NC).
Hard wired or infrared interfaces are available.
post-process gauges measure critical dimensions on ground or
turned parts and may generate compensation feedback signals to the machine tool control, as well as statistical process control (SPC).
They range from simple to complex systems, either dedicated or flexible,
manual or automatic, stand-alone or fully integrated with process
automation and robots.
Marposs standard and special gauge plugs are used in applications
transfer lines, machining centers and flexible cells.
The dimension of the part can be detected on the machine and the
measurement result is used to correct the machine in order to maximize
process capability. Scraps are eliminated and costs reduced.
These systems are available with standard or wide range measuring cells
based on contact or pneumatic technology. Hard wired or infrared
Thanks to the
non destructive testing it is possible to perform a
inspection of mechanical components to make sure of their structural
integrity and meet today's safety and reliability concerns.
