Gear Tooth Alignment Analytics
Gear Tooth Alignment Analytics (GTAA) is an advanced vision tool for hypoid or spiral bevel gear tooth alignment, turning images of the individual gear teeth contact patterns into quantitative data for statistical process control. GTAA, with adjustable tolerances, automates the process of inspecting differential gear & pinion alignment during production.
Designed to automate the inspection of hypoid gears in the gear & pinion alignment step of axle or transmission assembly for the transportation industry, GTAA is a vision based system which provides key measures & characteristics of the individual tooth contact pattern on a hypoid gear.
Adjustable & configurable – GTAA is configured to the gear specifications unique to your products, with adjustable tolerances.
Saves time & money – the inspection, analysis & data storage process saves time & money when compared with traditional, manual inspections
Traceability – inspection results are stored for each inspected part (both coast and drive side data)
Minimizes rouging – hypoid gear assemblies are treated with rouging prior to inspection in order to facilitate the inspection process; GTAA has been clearly shown to reduce the amount of rouging necessary for repeatable, reliable inspection results
Improves assembly quality – GTAA inspects the drive & coast faces of individual teeth and analyzes the contact pattern, producing quantitative data for enhanced alignment and subsequent analysis
A Gear Tooth Alignment Analytics base kit includes qty 2 cameras with optics, lighting, inspection automation and the software application with operator interface and database for results*. A computer and monitor are supplied as well.
Operating system: Windows 10 Communication protocol: standard industrial protocols like Profinet or EthernetIP
*The system requires an automated rouge system and powered run station in to develop the required contact pattern
