Single Leaf Measurement Transducers
Solartron’s latest innovation in sensor technology: single leaf flexures . Arising from a need to take a large number of measurements in difficult to reach places, the single leaf design has a range of features that enable users to take measurements in a wide variety of applications. They are easy to set up and adapt for even greater flexibility. As well as providing superb accuracy and repeatability, these flexures are also very robust to maximise their life and minimise downtime. These features mean they can be used across a wide range of industries and applications but they are particularly suitable for measuring cranks and camshafts.
One of the reasons this product is so suitable for use with cranks and camshafts is the single leaf design allows for the use of extension arms to reach inside slots or between components where other probes can’t access. They can also be mounted in such a way to allow precision profiling of moving materials. Recently, they have been very successfully deployed in the bearing industry to check transmission parts for fighting vehicles, in automotive applications (cranks and camshafts) and in the measurement of aerospace components.
The DUSM design miniature leaf flexures have excellent sealing so they can be used in wet and dirty environments safely and accurately. They are ideal for measuring holes.
