Gaging Probes Deliver Accurate Dimension Measurements

NewTek Sensor Solutions introduces the MBB Series of Ultra-Precision Dimensional Gaging Probes engineered for highly accurate and repeatable measurement of dimensional parameters in a variety of quality control, industrial metrology, and inspection equipment applications.  The spring-loaded AC-LVDTs are viable for use in roundness measurements, automotive testing, metal component gaging, and materials testing.

 

The LVDT Probes feature a stainless-steel probe assembly and 8-mm diameter housing protected to IP-65. High-precision linear ball bearings provide for smooth probe movement without stiction and excellent repeatability.   Incorporating a linear ball bearing assembly fitted to a non-rotating probe shaft, the MBB Series Gaging Probes produce an output voltage linearly proportional to the probe’s shaft position with minimal radial play.  The use of an AC-operated LVDT for probe shaft displacement reduces errors due to friction, resulting in a highly precise measurement of the position of a target surface.  

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

 

More precise substitutes to mechanical position indicators and digital dial gages, the MBB Series of LVDT-based Dimensional Gaging Probes are extremely reliable with greater than 100 million cycles with linearity of less than 0.05% of full range.  MBB Series Gaging Probes are available in three standard ranges: ±.040 in (±1.0 mm), ±0.100” (±2.5 mm) and ±0.200” (±5.0mm).  Units are available in 0.315 in (8 mm) and 0.375 in (9.5 mm) diameters.

 

NewTek offers DC-operated signal conditioners such as the NTC Qwik-CAL Signal Conditioner that combine with the MBB Dimensional Gaging Probes to create a complete linear position gaging system that outputs statistical quality control data on manufactured parts.  Mounting several gage probes in suitable fixtures also creates a system for “go/no/go” inspection of complex mechanical parts. For more information, checkout the MBB Series datasheet and/or contact Mike Marciante at 856-406-6877 to discuss application requirements.
