Article publication date: 1 December 1991



A multi‐probe computer controlled gauging system developed by Hitchin‐based Vernon Gauging Systems Ltd. has been installed to provide fully integrated closed loop statistical process control for a major twin spindle creep feed grinding cell supplied by Elb, of Germany, to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan. The gauging system will enable 100 per cent checking and control of aero engine turbine blade root and shroud feature dimensions to tolerances down to five microns with repeatability of 2 microns or better.
