Klingelnberg is among the winners of the 2021 German Innovation Awards with its “Done-in-One – Complete Measurement in a Single Stage” solution.
Machine manufacturing firm Klingelnberg won over the expert jury for the 2021 German Innovation Awards with its “Done-in-One – Complete Measurement in a Single Stage” solution. The German Innovation Awards honor products and solutions that distinguish themselves from earlier solutions primarily by their user centricity and added value.
Innovative approach in measurement technology
Klingelnberg’s approach is to perform various measurement processes in a single stage as one complete measurement (“Done-in-One”), all in the immediate production environment. A Klingelnberg Precision Measuring Center (G variant) has rapid measurement capability for dimensions, shape, contour, and surface roughness in one automated cycle. By combining measurement tasks traditionally performed on up to four different devices, it is possible not only to lower investment costs, but also to decrease setup times and reduce quality costs. The integration of measuring technology into the immediate production environment, in particular, helps to increase the productivity and output of the production plants. In sum, a fully automatic measuring run can save approximately 40% of the measurement and setup time.
