SPRING LENGTH GAGES are available in two configurations: First, proximity sensor types, and second, camera vision systems. HSI offers both solutions to spring makers.
These systems are integrated by direct connection to the spring coiling machine, providing immediate feedback regarding the length of the spring being coiled. By establishing and programming predetermined control limits into the gage, out of tolerance springs will be automatically sorted out of the process. At the same time, data fed back to the machine allows for automatic corrective action to adjust the coiling process. In the case of vision spring length gage systems, free length and outside diameter can both be monitored and recorded.
