Gear alignment automated with vision application from Radix


Radix Technology Solutions, a division of the AIS Technologies Group, has announced the release of a new vision application at the trade show and conference “Automate 2019” set for May 17-20. This vision application, called Gear Tooth Alignment Analytics, is designed to automate the process of precisely aligning differential pinion and gears.

This configurable vision application inspects individual gear teeth (drive and coast), precisely calculating gear mesh contact patterns. With real-time feedback to the operator, this stand-alone application ensures the achievement of rapid and accurate pinion and gear alignment. Additional data provided by Gear Tooth Alignment Analytics includes length and width of pattern, position along the flank, total contact area, along with other metrics of value to gear analysis. An additional benefit to this product is that it requires only minimal roughing on each gear – a process and material savings of substantial value.
