Robert Bosch GmbH uses MEITEC technology at various locations inside and outside Germany. In new machines, as well as for the overhaul of existing machinery and in measuring machines, MEITEC measuring controls and components are used successfully for the monitoring of machining processes and component quality.
Implemented in the workpiece transfer after surface finishing work, MEITEC measuring machines take over quality control of not yet cleaned workpieces, as part of a post-process system.
Once a workpiece has reached the measuring machine, the measurement control MEITEC CS100 takes over all control tasks required for the exact positioning of the workpiece on the measurement point and the rotation of the workpiece during the measurement. Pneumatic measurement technology is used for measurements of the entire type spectrum of workpieces with and without discontinuities.
The forwarding of data to the control system of our client Robert Bosch is carried out by the MEITEC CS100, as well as communication to the robot-based Baumann-handling system for workpiece loading and unloading. In addition, feedback of the measured values can be given to the in-process MEITEC measurement control integrated in the processing machine. The MEITEC measuring machine is designed as a self-monitoring system with plausibility checks. Thus, without much maintenance, at all times an optimally equipped measuring system is available.
All steps and measurements of the measurement process are graphically displayed on the touch panel MEITEC MRTP 104D, so operators and tool setters have all post-process measurements at a glance. Operation and setup is also done in the various menus of the MRTP MEITEC 104D.
