  • Inside groove diameter measuring skill

    Hi Guru,

    Any suggestion on how to measure inside groove diameter accurately with CMM?

    I have a 90 degree knuckle to build a probe which can be used to measure it but i haven't never use it before. How to build the probe and calibrate it? Can we use the same calibration tool to calibrate it?

    BTW, I haven't tried to use star probe yet. Any suggestion on how to use and calibrate it? Thanks

      The easiest way is to use a disc, which can then be used to measure a groove at any given probe head angle, it's relatively simple to calibrate and easy to program. With a star probe you have to tell the CMM which tip (modal) you are using to make contact with.

      I have rotated the probe head in the B axis with A fixed in two situations:
      i) With one stem of a star probe assembled, where the bore diamter is too small for a full star probe assembly to fit, where A was fixed at zero.
      ii) Where the bore diameter was large 6" and deep 7" and the probe head/column would have interfered with the top face, where A was fixed at 30 or thereabouts using an 80mm long ball stylus.

      What is the dia of bore, groove depth (radially) groove width, depth of groove, form of groove (sq/rad) as these determine what methods/tools you can actually use.

          Thank you, Alex,

          The groove is a cylinder inside a tube. The groove diameter is .912+0.002/-0.000, its outside cylinder(within the tube,I.D) diameter is 0.765+/-0.002;another groove is 1.037+0.002/-0.000, its outside cylinder(inside the tube,I.D) diameter is 0.906+/-0.002. the tube cylinder O.D is 3.210+-0.005.

          Groove width is about .140+/-0.02

          Please feel free to raise up your concerns and I'll try my best to answer your question,

          Thanks,

            You didn't say what the groove position is in the tube but I'd suggest this off the shelf stylus. Renishaw A-5000-3615 - 12.7dia 2.2mm thick, here's the probe file data for it that I recently created. The stylus is quite heavy so isn't suited for large extensions in the horizontal position but hopefully it may suit for you.
