Excessive machine tool spindle wear leads to shorter tool life, poorer surface finish, and loss of accuracy.
The Gyromech is an innovative external device for quickly and accurately measuring the run out, and other parameters, on machine tool spindles. The digital measurement method is entirely new and has a resolution of 0.1 microns.
Useful on lathes, milling machines, machining centres and grinding machines the spindle of the device is typically attached to the spindle to be tested by a taper adaptor, while the stationary measurement housing is bolted rigidly to the machine table. The output of the measuring device is connected to a high speed signal processor, which in turn is plugged into a laptop.
Remote Monitored Systems (LON:RMS) is focused on the continued development of the Company’s ‘Survey & Inspection’ business. RMS also has a majority interest in GyroMetric Systems Limited, which develops and manufactures digital monitoring and safeguarding systems for rotating shafts.
