JBO's eMultiCheck checks threads quickly, effortlessly and with faultless accuracy time and time again.

MAGNA Powertrain trusts eMultiCheck to check the threads of the balancing casings for BMW N20s.

Instead of manually screwing in, reading off and screwing out, electronics provide for the automatic testing sequence – with high precision and time savings of up to 80%, plus an enormous reduction in the strain on employees.

 

Now all that’s necessary to run the test is the push of a button.  

The electronics detect the thread and start the test procedure by screwing in the go plug gauge with a defined torque. Another press of a button and the plug gauge is moved out of the workpiece again.

Seven parts are currently tested per shift. Each part has 7 blind holes and 3 through-hole threads.  That results in a total of 210 threads for a daily throughput of 21 casings.

Overstressing of the wrist joints caused by screwing in manually is now a thing of the past;  one of the most important reasons for MAGNA to use the eMultiCheck in production.

Each component has its ‘own’ eMultiCheck which tests the threads automatically and with a constant torque – regardless of the operator.  In accuracies  caused by manual measurement are eliminated.

The measured values can be reliably read off on the digital display and on request the measured and test values can be read out via digital output.

As a specialist for manfacturing thread machining and testing tools, JBO has conceived a test system with the eMultiCheck which combined outstanding functions with convincing user friendliness.
