Bowers to demonstrate connective metrology at Control 2022Camberley-based Bowers Group will be showcasing a variety of metrology solutions at Control 2022 exhibition taking place 3-6 May in Stuttgart, Germany, (Hall 7, Booth 7102). Visitors will witness live demonstrations of effective data transfer between measurement equipment and applications, showing how Bluetooth IoT and connectivity can improve efficiencies and reduce errors.

Delegates will have the chance to see the new Bowers DigiMic, the company’s new digital external micrometer. With its large screen and advanced, built-in Bluetooth connectivity, DigiMic offers quick, simple, and highly accurate measurements that can be easily integrated into any Industry 4.0/SPC system.

Meanwhile, the Venture XT, Baty’s highly flexible multi-sensor vision system will also be on the stand, demonstrating the latest Fusion software release featuring lens error mapping and off-line vision/touch-probe programming from CAD. The combination of contact and non-contact measurements in the same automated inspection, combined with ease of use and graphical reporting make Baty’s Venture XT a cost-effective measurement solution for both production cells and QC labs alike.

Richard Grocott, Bowers export sales director, said: “Control is always a much-anticipated date in the Bowers Group calendar, and we are delighted to be returning after a three-year break due to the pandemic. We will, of course, be following all guidelines and precautions to ensure this is a safe event and the perfect platform to demonstrate how our range of bore gauges, micrometers, and indicators all participate in data exchange.

“This enables measurement instruments to be easily paired with applications, making receiving data more efficient and improving quality.”

Also on display will be the new Baty R400 profile projector with a 300 x 150mm measuring range, which offers a range of improvements including positive adaptations to the lighting system and focal length that makes it an ideal tool for measuring a wide range of parts.

The FT2-E touchscreen display with the new high accuracy screen-mounted edge sensor features the latest Fusion software which enables measurement data points to be taken automatically, removing operator influence and dramatically improving repeatability.

The 22in touch screen display allows DXF CAD files to be displayed for profile comparison and allows dimensioned drawings of measured parts to be easily generated. The FT2-E readout can also be retrofitted to an existing profile projector, transforming it into a highly accurate, 2-D measuring machine with powerful reporting, at a cost-effective price.

Visitors will also have the chance to see the extensive selection of bespoke measurement solutions for a variety of gauging applications. As the world’s leading bore gauge manufacturer, its application heads can be fitted directly onto the company’s XT range of digital bore gauges to create a flexible, modular measuring system suitable for measuring threads, grooves, splines, and deep holes.
