Hommel-Etamic Point of Use Gauging

Quality decides: precise measurement of surface texture, geometry and form deviation.

At the point of manufacture

Point of Use Gaging (POU) is an application specific, hand applied, roughness measuring solution for use in the production environment.

POU systems are used to measure surface finish using a Skidded or Skidless Pick-up on Engine components such as:

  • Engine Block
  • Cylinder Head
  • Crankshaft
  • Connecting Rod
  • Camshaft

In addition, they are also heavily used for Transmission components like:

  • Cases
  • Housings
  • Valve Bodies.

Measurement Simplified

Working with Point of Use Gauges simplifies many working processes. These systems are easy to use and save a lot of time in the process. It was designed for measuring on the shop floor right at the point of manufacture.

Furthermore it was produced to prevent damage by using Auto-Retraction. The limited operator influence leads to statistical repeatability. The servicing of the unit can be accomplished in seconds due to plug and play components (stylus, stylus extensions, LV16, waveline 20). It is possible to choose a System Interface with Third Party Data Collection Stations (CMZ).

In addition you can use a Hommel- ETamic W55 or a Hommel-Etamic Multi- Plexor with TURBO WAVE Software to export to QS-Stat Output. The use of a Multi-Plexor enables part programming using operator guided sequencing.

Centralised Stations are available, as well as Single and Multiple Operations.
