LVDT Gage Heads Replace Failing Units On Automotive Parts
Macro Sensors

Macro Sensors LVDT gage heads find employment on an automated auto part production line as part of a quality control system that ensures the precise dimensions of hydraulic valve adjusters manufactured for use in different car engines. Prior to using spring-loaded LVDT heads, a standard LVDT gage head quickly wore out because the springs could not tolerate the high production volume of 300K units per day. As a result, the sensors needed to be replaced about three times during a production cycle, which resulted in productivity loss and higher costs associated with sensor inventory. To solve the problem, Macro Sensors customized its GHSAR 750 Series Spring-Loaded AC LVDT Position Sensors with a spring manufactured from high strength steel that is 3x to 4x stronger.
