Augmented Reality Enables Virtual Measurement Exercise
With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018 and Amerimold 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Marposs provides visitors to its booth AR glasses that guide them through a sequence of steps and measurements to check features on a cylinder-head component using the Marposs iWave2.
At IMTS 2018, Marposs will demonstrate guided-sequence gauging using augmented reality (AR). Marposs will provide visitors to this area of the booth AR glasses that guide them through a sequence of steps and measurements to check features on a cylinder-head component using the Marposs iWave2 handheld wireless gauge and a Go/NoGo gauge. As visitors progress through the sequence, they will be able to see that the measurement information is adhering to the workpiece.
This AR experience is just one of many demonstrations occurring in the Marposs booth. Marposs will provide visitors a tour that illustrates how the company’s measurement and inspection solutions can be applied to improve manufacturing processes before, during and after machining. Other stations will feature machine tools to demonstrate tool setting, probing, machine monitoring and robotic gauging. Additionally, there will be stations on dynamic grinding including its BLU single cable control system, bench gauging, automated machine inspection and leak testing. Marposs products will displayed or demonstrate nearly 50 of its products at the show.
Even though hand cleaning will never be completely eliminated, ice blasting is an alternative cleaning method that can effectively reduce cleaning time and cost.
In time and with practice, each polisher will develop his or her own tricks and short cuts.
