Quality Assurance and Thread Check with SMAC

The requirement for strict specification and acceptance of all automotive parts and components has greatly increased in recent years. Thread inspection is no exception. Some of the common practices are eddy current probes, lasers, proximity sensors or vision systems that are only partly successful as they only inform you of the presence of a thread, not if it’s correct or within tolerance.

The automated thread checking solution from SMAC enables a 100% detailed inspection and verification of all parts. It also identifies tooling wear sooner, and allows SPC data acquisition for process control and quality systems. All of this translates to higher quality and throughput, lower costs and increased customer confidence. This is typically an inline inspection operating at production rates.
