Users can also leverage the fast static testing functionality of the ST-11 for thread testing as well as some product assembly verification applications.
Issues such as clogged quench nozzles, loose tooling/fixturing, bent induction coils, incorrect heating cycles, power outages and the like can result in hardness, case depth and case pattern issues that are immediately detectable with the ST-11 on your production line.
An industry leading user interface, coupled with our unique Setup Assist feature, ensures all levels of production personnel can quickly establish ST-11 testing configurations and easily understand the test results.
The ST-11’s Industrial I/O provides the handshaking required to seamlessly work with today’s automation systems.
The ST-11’s modern electronics generate minimal heat, eliminating the need for external fans. This important feature keeps the dirty oily plant atmosphere out, minimizing downtime for repairs and extends the life of the instrument.
Multi-frequency ST-11 verifies material structure and hardness after heat treatment, confirms alloy type and checks threaded hole quality at production line speeds. The ST-11 instrument helps you detect and sort out undesirable heat treat conditions such as shallow or misplaced case as well as others resulting from short heat, delayed quench, short quench, air cooled and no heat. The ST-11 is ideal for testing Automotive Drive Train Components such as Gears, Shafts, Valves, Rings, Bearings, Fasteners, Threaded Blocks and Covers, Assembly Verification and other Safety Critical Items.
