Bowers Metrology supplied OEM supplier, Quaife Engineering with a air-gauging system for ensuring accurate diameters of the OD bearing journals of motor shafts for electric vehicles.

Quaife Engineering purchased an air-gauging system from Bowers Metrology for measuring the diameters of the OD bearing journals of motor shafts for electric vehicles.

The system uses an air-gauge ring — into which shafts are inserted and rotated 360º — and a PC 2200 electronic/air column that displays the real-time status of the shaft in digital and analogue modes.

Bowers’ PC 2200 is programmed with the accepted upper and lower limits of the bearing and displays an amber light when these limits are approached.

Quaife Engineering says that it was use the air-gauging system within other production areas, using the addition of add-on plugs and rings.
