Pratt & Whitney to Demonstrate New Automatic Part Measuring System


Bloomfield, CT, September 16, 2013 - Pratt & Whitney will be demonstrating the new long length automatic Labmaster Universal (Model 1000A) at the Quality Expo Texas from March 19-20, 2014 and the NCSL conference from August 3-7, 2014.  The Model 1000A is Pratt and Whitney's largest capacity and most automated measuring system with a 40 inch (1016mm) direct reading range and 80 inch (2032mm) capacity.  Our latest lab concept!

Features include laser interferometer, air bearings, bi-directional probes, constant measuring force, and flexible fixturing. These features offer guaranteed repeatability and operator independent reproducibility with unmatched speed.
Probe movement and table movements such as the swivel, centering, tilt, and elevation adjustments are controlled with a press of a button or click of the mouse. Simple software script allows automatic measurement of gages or custom parts for ultimate accuracy and ease of use. Automated positioning, alignment, and measurement practically eliminate operator influence and decrease measurement time. Instrument configurations, including table alignment and position, can be saved and recalled at a later time, minimizing setup time for common artifacts. GageCal also has predefined application screens and enters tolerances for various types of measurements such as blocks, rings, plugs, and threads.

With appropriate accessories, the Long Length Universal Model 1000A is capable of measuring rings (threaded & non-threaded), gage blocks, plugs (threaded & non-threaded), dial/test indicators, gage wires, micrometer heads, pin gages, tapered plugs (threaded & non-threaded), end standards, micrometers, and snap gages, all with NIST traceability. The Long Length Universal 1000A can also measure a wide range of specialty applications such as ID/OD bearings (radial/axial clearance), nano gauges, balls, shafts, optics, as well as your precision parts.

Other specialty measuring applications include: gears, shafts, optics, film thickness, automotive parts, aerospace parts including aircraft engine parts, and your precision components.
