RET are working with a major aerospace customer on gear skiving a component for the F-35 programme and that means we have to make a step-change in inspection technology to measure the gears.
To fulfil that requirement, we have chosen the Leitz Reference HP 5.4.3 supplied by Hexagon which provides a class leading co-ordinate measuring machine it’s also a tremendously capable gear inspection centre.
With sub micron accuracy, powerful Leitz HP S X3 analogue scanning probe and the unmatched Quindos Gear software, the HP 5.4.3 is capable of measuring spur gears up to Ø350mm and bevel gears up to Ø200mm.
This will be in place and working shortly and we will keep you posted when that happens.
