For the 30th time, Control, the world's leading trade fair for quality assurance, will soon take place. And Klingelnberg, a leading manufacturer of precision measuring centers for the gearing industry, will again be represented in 2016 with a stand in Stuttgart. Thus from April 26 to 29, the system supplier will present a round of talks at its stand in Hall 1/1418, which will cover all aspects of gear measuring technology – from innovative technologies to first-class service.
Klingelnberg is again presenting its range of gear measurement products in the five major disciplines of "gear measurement", "production measurement", "dimension, shape and position measurement" and "measurement analysis", as well as the range of multifaceted services at its stand in hall 1/1418. With the help of three measuring machines on exhibit at a stand covering a total floor space of over 200 square meters and a number of different software presentations, visitors will get hands-on experience and find out just what sets Klingelnberg technologies apart from the rest. This year, the P 16, P 26 and P 40 measuring machines will be presented. The system supplier will provide impressive demonstrations of how the precision measuring centers are consistently able to deliver reliable measuring results, even in the most challenging ambient conditions. But that's not all. Thanks to advanced software, they are also incredibly easy to operate.
"All precision measuring centers have been equipped with new versions of the calibration software, as well as a modern graphical user interface," reports Dr. Christof Gorgels, product line manager of the Gear Measuring Technology division at Klingelnberg. "The new Windows user interface, soon to be established on the market under the "EasyStart" brand, allows the machine operator to operate the machine in a manner that is both significantly easier and target-oriented. A clearly structured user interface, displayed by a tiled layout with appropriate symbols for the specific measuring application, ensures a quick and easy program start on the gear measuring machine. Most machine operators will already be familiar with this type of application from the current general Windows system interface."
An additional focal point of this year's fair presence is the measurement of compact and miniature gearings. Roughness measurement, already firmly established at Klingelnberg for quite some time, has been further developed and refined in such a manner that roughness measurements can be performed fully automatically on gearings from module 0.9. Georg Mies, Head of Measuring Machine Development at Klingelnberg, explains: "Even the finest structures on barrel-finished gearings can be measured and evaluated with the utmost precision. Thus for the first time ever, roughness testing can be performed on such gearings."
And finally, as in years past Klingelnberg has again succeeded in bringing in a measurement analysis expert to take part in exciting discussions: Dr.-Ing. Günther Gravel, Head of the Institute for Production Technology at the University for Applied Sciences (HAW) in Hamburg. He will be available at the Klingelnberg stand with his technical expertise, all day on two days of the exhibition.
Visitors to Klingelnberg's stand will be treated to a range of interesting topics and can look forward to lively discussions with the team of experts.
