NewTek Spring-Loaded Position Sensors Test Dimensional Stability of Molded Automotive Parts

Top Quote NewTek spring-loaded LVDTs provide ultra-precise dimensional measurement of high-volume molded automotive parts in plastic mold testing. Different interior, exterior, and mechanical automotive parts, such as bumpers, heating components, and door handles, are manufactured through an injection molding process. End Quote
  • (1888PressRelease) April 21, 2023 - NewTek MBB Series gaging probes are used in test stands to provide roundness and size measurements of finished auto parts to ensure their dimensional stability. As plastic can shrink or distort, the spring-loaded linear position sensors can help detect units that are out-of-tolerance and provide output for product acceptance or rejection. Detecting defects is important to maintain product quality to ensure fit and function.

    Sensors offer excellent linearity (< 0.5% full range), great precision, infinite resolution, and extreme reliability with greater than 100 million cycles. Available in ranges .040 in (1.0 mm), 0.100 in (2.5 mm), and 0.200 in (5 mm), the MBB Series sensors features high precision linear ball bearings for smooth probe movement without stiction and excellent repeatability
