Twinner horizontal instrument for measuring cylindrical parts trimos

TWINNER is a universal instrument for the measurement of cylinder-shaped parts, which replaces a great number of conventional instruments in the workshop. This measuring centre, multifunctional, flexible and mobile, allows to measure and document practically all that is manufactured by turning.

This instrument has been specifically developed for the workshop and lends itself perfectly to a use in production, close to the machining centre.

TWINNER allows the quality control of sole parts as well as that of small batches. Other areas of use are the control and acceptation of machine tool. All revolution parts can be precisely measured, without adjustment necessary. The range of parts that can be measured spreads over typical turning parts, such as axles, gearbox shafts, camshafts, crankshafts, transmission shafts, joints and revolving parts, to parts with very elaborate geometry.

TWINNER is available in the following dimensions: lengths of 400, 800, 1200 and 2000 mm and diameters of 125 or 160 mm. The manual use and control of the TWINNER are performed by a PC with TWINNER soft.

  • Simple handling
  • Use without preliminary knowledge
  • No user's influence thanks to constant measuring force
  • Excellent repeatability
  • Very fast change of parts
  • Easy calibration
  • Complete selection of accessories
