Wenzel Inspects Bearings and Ring Gears For Mass Size Objects

Do you manufacture large objects, but have a difficult time getting measurements right the first time?

Do you want to improve quality by scanning and get more data points on your parts?

Are you in the market for a robust machine that can handle anything you throw its way?

If you answered, Yes to any of these questions, then look no further than Wenzels WGT series of Gear Checker CMM measuring inspection machines!

Did you know that our WGT series of Gear Checker machines can handle loads up to 100,000 lbs.?

In this design, the CMM measuring arms are each mounted to a table that is in turn mounted on a large corresponding granite base. The measuring arms feature high-accuracy linear guide ways for the X-axis. The Y- and Z-axes feature finely tuned, preloaded roller bearings providing minimum friction and operational wear.

Liebherr Werk Bieberach, GmbH is a German manufacturer of large construction cranes, and was looking for an easy way to measure their cranes that may be as big as 20 feet in length. Wenzel WGT series of Gear Checker cmm measuring machines include application software that helped Liebherr provide a calculation of optimum fitting tolerances for inner and outer bearing components of an object.

Wenzel America offers a wide range of products that will suit every measuring need imaginable! We are constantly developing new technology and ways to use that technology that solves the toughest measurement problems. If youd like to learn more about our customized GMM measuring machines, CMM measuring machines and innovative measuring technology like computed tomography, optical sensors, laser scanners and 3d scanning services, contact us today!

Eliminate Delays With Wenzel’s Revolutionary 3d Scanning Services

How many times have you used a brand new tooling kit and still produced a component with imperfections?

Unless this has never happened to you, you could benefit from Wenzel’s 3d scanning services with PointMaster software! 

The actual geometrical data of the produced components are first generated by Computer Tomography (CT). After measuring, the ‘CT voxel data’ is processed using the PointMaster software. The component data is analyzed and compared with the nominal CAD data. At a single glance, the shape variations can be seen on a topographical deviation map. In contrast to traditional measurement protocols, all deviations measured are shown in color, and the functional relationships can be described, analyzed and evaluated.

F. & G. Hachtel GmbH & Co. KG – a medium-sized, German, injection-molding company with its own tool and die making operations – was looking for a solution to mitigate time delays and subsequent losses in time and money. The Wenzel PointMaster software was a great solution to their problem because the flexibility allows tool designers a variety of corrective options to simulate molds.

Wenzel America is a proven industry leader; our customer service measures up and we live to solve the toughest measuring problems. We have a 45-year history of making metrology products and we apply our experience and know-how in everything we do. Invest in a new or used Wenzel 3d scanning services machine, and put us to the test!
