Challenge: Lack of a clear, simple method to inspect the geometric profile of many components. Existing systems are slow, unreliable, and complex to operate.


Glebar’s P4K gauging system was designed to inspect components ranging from medical guidewires and arthroscopic shavers to titanium fasteners and medical bone drills with the push of a button. The software is able to profile the geometric shape up to 1 meter.  The inspection system automatically communicates production results, enabling the most basic employee to measure complex dimensions.  The system also drastically reduces setup times by scanning all parts in a cycle (all stations) and feeding back diameter length & geometric position adjustments to correct dress shape automatically in a matter of seconds. 



Gauging Systems



The P4K Gauging System is the fastest and most accurate profile metrology system available for long parts or multiple short parts and is the gold standard quality control device for the measurement of guidewires. As a setup reduction device (for the GT-610 CNC), the P4K scans and provides feedback of the entire component geometry for all parts in a cycle to automatically correct the grinding wheel dress shape (correcting the wheel dress shape from any measurement device is patent-pending).This is done in a matter of seconds, drastically reducing setup time and improving quality control.  For other compatible Glebar machines, (GT-610, GT-610 SD, CAM.2 and GT-9AC) the P4K serves as a closed-loop quality control device that feeds back diameter to the control system for automatic size compensation. From titanium fasteners to medical guidewires, the P4K system has you covered.
