It was once considered that automatic gauging systems were only appropriate for high-volume and long-run applications. That may have been true in the past, but modern technology has enabled manufacturers to add more flexibility to such systems. As a result, such systems are ideal for a variety of low-volume applications.
The main advantage of automatic gauging is consistency because it virtually eliminates all operator-related variables from the operation. Depending on the application requirements, automatic gauging systems come in three flavors: dedicated, re-toolable, and flexible.
In today's era here are the some detail about automatic gauging:
A PLC or other station controller is employed to replicate material handling parts, interlocks, gauge motions, and other functions in a standard automatic gauging system. It also includes an amplifier or display for collecting gauge transducer outputs and processing them to generate final geometric and dimensional values. The system also includes auxiliary equipment that marks a part for monitoring purposes.
The amplifier in the gauging system is a small computer that filters raw signals using proprietary signal processing and data analysis software. The software then combines these signals with various transducer readings. Dimensional data is created in this manner. The amplifier may also perform statistical analysis and generate compensation signals that will be executed by machine controls.
Types of gauging systems available in the market:
Optical gauges provide remarkable flexibility, allowing for quick and efficient changes. They are, however, less tolerant of components of the environment and are very sensitive to variations in part finish.
Air gauges can withstand harsh environmental conditions and are unaffected by part finish. However, proper operation necessitates a very small clearance between the part and the gauge. This can make air gauges more difficult to load and dirt sensitive.
Oilfield operators work in hazardous environments with larger pressure ranges, which puts them in tremendous danger. Electronic gauges can reduce the high pressure in the lines, improving operator safety in the process. Electronic gauges from Contact Instruments are available with alerts and choices for high pressure pump output reduction, putting the user in control.

How to get maximum value from gauging system:
Because automatic gauge systems have traditionally been used in long-run and high-volume applications, they are frequently overlooked as viable solutions for other types of production. This is a major oversight, as modern technology has made them a viable option for many low-volume and mid-range applications.
However, it is crucial to acknowledge that the acceptable solutions by these systems complicates component selection and configuration processes for automatic gauging. To get the most out of gauging system technology, you must understand all of its limitations and capabilities.
An implementer should also consider how much floor space should be set aside for a gauging system. The system must also be integrated into downstream and upstream processes, and cycle times must be coordinated. Most importantly, after all of the machine tools have been installed, the process must be qualified and affirmed by the gauge.
Automatic gauging systems, when used accurately, can contribute to both the quality and productivity of a process.
