ThreadChecker for the automotive industry
Kaman Precision Products announces the availability of its improved ThreadChecker for the automotive industry. This line of non-contact application-specific sensors provides rugged, reliable verification of thread presence or absence in nearly any electrically conductive material. The ThreadChecker is a teachable eddy current inspection tool, widely used for thread detection, material sorting, plating presence and absence of heat treatment. Any physical property difference that relates to material conductivity is readily detected. These sensors are available from stock and ready to ship immediately.
Consisting of a single electronics module compatible with any probe or material combination, the ThreadChecker can check threads regardless of part cleanliness, reducing the cost of implementation.
With Kaman’s proven eddy current technology at its core, the ThreadChecker is designed specifically for in-die use. It features four internal thread probes, ranging from 4-10 millimeters and two external thread probes, 6mm and 8mm. Available with a DIN rail mounting option, ThreadChecker is CE-compliant and features IP-67 rated probes and electronics.
The ThreadChecker is available with switched and analog outputs. With the switched output option, the sensor is wired to a PLC or other controller, programmed to alarm when no thread is detected. As an alternative, users can monitor the analog voltage and program the PLC or other control device with suitable limits.
