Advanced Straightness Software
Overview

Adcole Material Build-Up & Advanced Straightness software is an advanced linear scan data analysis package. The software is used to detect any “material build-up” on the leading or trailing edge of the scan. Material build-up is usually found in a zone outside of the straightness calculation range.

Material Build-Up & Advanced Straightness software can measure one or more linear traces on a crankshaft journal, using assorted measurement methods. The basic method is to measure the journal from the lower radial cut to the upper radial cut. Alternatively, a different method is to measure the cheek positions of a journal and then take a linear measurement based on the actual length of the journal. Recently, Adcole developed a third option that uses alternative scan length measurements for material build-up and straightness. This feature enables users to set a scan length that is larger than the distance between the lower and upper radial cut positions. This capability provides an option to measure a larger percentage of the journal surface without the need of measuring the faces (thereby saving cycle time).
