2:00 - 2:15 - Fast dimensional quality control of spray nozzles with SOLEX Air Flow Comparators

Nathalie Nardone - Metrology Business Development Manager - KEP Technologies

Solex flowmeters are used to measure the size of parts that have openings for which there are very strict size tolerances or of parts that have complex geometry. For many years it has been used in industrial sectors such as cosmetics (sprays) and pharmaceuticals (dosing pumps) in which its robustness, its reliability and its high measurement accuracy are recognized.

It has been completely redesigned and also equipped with a new electronic module to provide even more features. The dedicated µCati-4 software brings operational facilitation and intuitive functioning together : a step-by-step guide to the monitoring methodology to be followed, reports with statistics for better follow up of the production process.
