gapCONTROL for gap measurement

Edgeless gap

Edgeless gap

 

The edgeless gaps are the so-called "Basic Gaps" and are characterised by clearly defined reference points for gap measurement. These could be, for example, the end points or the lowest points of each side.Furthermore, the offset of both sides is easily measurable. This gap type allows for an easy entry and the desired measurement result is output by modifying just a few settings.

„Basic Gaps“ programs:

  • Edge Points Gap
  • Top Points Gap
  • Bottom Points Gap
  • Threshold Points Gap

Typical values measured:

  • Gap width
  • Height differences
  • Centre position

Projected Gap

Projected Gap

 

With these types of gaps, the "Projected Gaps", the end points of both sides are projected. There are different ways of projection, for example, the projection onto a common parallel or the projection of an end point onto the opposite side.The distance between the projected points is described as gap width. The pre-defined gap variants allow for easy and fast setting.

"Projected Gaps" programs:

  • Intersection Gap
  • Single Line Projection Gap
  • Double Line Projection Gap
  • Point to Line Projection Gap

Typical values measured:

  • Gap width
  • Minimum distance
  • Angle

Gaps with floor

Gaps with floor

 

If there is a visible floor in the gap, further inspections can be carried out in order to e.g. measure the gap depth. The evaluations also apply for grooves and other cavities.

With soldering applications e.g. the so-called V-gap of pipelines, special algorithms of the „Advanced Groove Gap“ output the oscillation width depending on the current soldering depth.

Programs:
  • Flat Groove Gap
  • Parallel Lines Groove Gap
  • Independent Lines Groove Gap
  • Single Line Groove Gap
Typical values measured:
  • Gap width
  • Gap depth
  • Angle

Advanced Gaps

Advanced Gaps

 

These types offer the user advanced settings. The algorithms for flushness measurement or projection can be adapted independently of each other as well as the search criteria for the respective gap points. Furthermore, these gap types provide numerous additional measured values such as angle or unevenness of the edges.

Easy Start

In most cases, it makes sense to start with the „Basic Gaps“ or „Projected Gaps“ measurement programs. If required, the user can easily switch to the advanced settings via the navigation menus. The software enables the user to keep all previous settings.
