EXAIR Super Air Wipe Provides Measurement Process Improvement

One of the most repeatable aspects of EXAIR products is the ability to make sustainable, measurable improvements to an application.  Whether the application need is for spot cooling to improve process speeds, static elimination to eliminate defects, or debris blow off to improve quality, EXAIR products fit the bill time and time again.

In the photo above the hub is used as a quality checking device after a machining process.  The hub remains stationary while a machined part is brought into the application via robot.  During the mating of the machined part to the hub, to check proper fit and tolerance, small chips were becoming trapped between the hub measurement sensors and the machined part.

To eliminate this disturbance a 3” Super Air Wipe was installed to keep the OD of the measuring hub clean and free of debris.  Since installing the Super Air Wipe, debris and damage related measurement errors have been reduced to zero.

These tighter quality control capabilities have increased the efficiency of the application and reduced the need to rework existing product.

If you have a similar application, or one for which you think an EXAIR solution may be viable, contact an EXAIR Application Engineer.
