Ultra-Precision Gaging Probes

NewTek Sensor Solutions offers its MBB Series of Ultra-Precision Dimensional Gaging Probes engineered for accurate and repeatable measurement of dimensional parameters in a variety of quality control, industrial metrology and inspection equipment applications. Offering enhanced linearity, increased precision and infinite resolution, these spring-loaded AC-LVDTs are suitable for use in roundness measurements, automotive testing, metal component gauging and materials testing.

The MBB Series Gaging LVDT Probes feature a stainless-steel probe assembly and 8 mm diameter housing protected to IP-65. "High-precision linear ball bearings provide for smooth probe movement without stiction and excellent repeatability," said a NewTek spokesperson. Incorporating a linear ball bearing assembly fitted to a non-rotating probe shaft, the MBB Series Gaging Probes produce an output voltage linearly proportional to the probe's shaft position with minimal radial play. The use of an AC-operated LVDT for probe shaft displacement reduces errors due to friction, resulting in a highly precise measurement of the position of a target surface.

"More precise substitutes to mechanical position indicators and digital dial gauges, the MBB Series of LVDT-based Dimensional Gaging Probes are extremely reliable with greater than 100 million cycles with linearity of less than 0.05% of full range," added the spokesperson. MBB Series Gaging Probes are available in three standard ranges: ±.040" (±1.0 mm), ±0.100" (±2.5 mm) and ±0.200" (±5.0mm). Units are available in 0.315" (8 mm) and 0.375" (9.5 mm) diameters.

NewTek offers DC-operated signal conditioners such as the NTC Qwik-CAL Signal Conditioner that combine with the MBB Dimensional Gaging Probes to create a complete linear position gaging system that outputs statistical quality control data on manufactured parts. Mounting several gauge probes in suitable fixtures also creates a system for "go/no-go" inspection of complex mechanical parts.
