Frenco Adds Gage for Measuring Splines to Produce A Circumferential Backlash Measuring Instrument
According to its press release, Frenco has offered such gages, but theyve been provided by third parties. Now Frenco will be making the instrument itself.
Also, Frenco has revised and optimized the gages design to make its handling easier and more precise. Users can read direct measurement values from the dial indicator using a special probing method. According to Frenco, this feature lets users avoid converting the measuring value ratios, which is necessary with some other circumferential backlash gages.
Frenco offers its instrument with a setting arbor and an inspection one. The setting arbor is used to set up the instrument, the inspection arbor to check the function of the instrument and its dial. Frenco says the arbors reduce the time and effort to monitor and maintain the gage. The inspection arbor, for example, can detect damage on the measuring instruments teeth, damage that can lead to erroneous measurements.
Located near Nuremburg, Germany, Frenco specializes in gear and spline measuring instruments.
