Montion Controllers in compact measuring device from Q-tec GmbH

We encounter elastomers, i.e. “rubber-like” materials, daily. Like other products, one can observe a trend here toward increas-ingly smaller items. Until now, the testing method used in accordance with DIN 53505 was carried out with a comparatively large, conical-shaped needle. Now, Q-TEC GmbH, based in Zeilarn, Germany, has been successful in geometrically scaling down the physical procedure, thus allowing the measurement of both ultra-miniature samples and the precise points of larger product pieces. For the exact positioning and force adjustment of the test probe, miniaturized up to factor of ten, they teamed up with the FAULHABER specialists for ultra-miniature drives. The collaboration resulted in a compact measuring device able to implement standard specification in miniaturized form.

Measuring hardness

The Shore hardness measuring method is based on purely physical procedures. In order to cover the widest hardness range possible, both the test needle’s geometry and the force progression is preset for the measurement. If the needle only penetrates superficially into the hard elastomer, the penetration force is increased. This allows soft materials to be measured accurately with a lower penetration force and longer measurement range – and also hard ma-terials with a smaller penetration depth and, simultaneously, higher force at the needle tip. This standard procedure enables the hardness to be determined from a minimum test thickness of 4 to 6 mm with a bearing surface of approximately 18 mm in diameter. Specially manufactured test plates are generally used in this process.
The new measuring procedure is based on the comparative load characteristic of geometrically miniaturized bodies. So the hardness of the test specimens can now be measured with a needle reduced in size by a factor of ten, the point of which corresponds approximately to the diameter of a human hair, beginning with thicknesses as low as 0.5 mm. This opens up completely new possibilities. For instance, a range of targeted parameters used in production, including injection velocity, vulcanization temperature or annealing rate, can be varied, in order to arrive at an optimal product result verified in the hardness test. The standard measuring range of the new devices spans from 10 to 95 Shore A. As the small needle is not prestressed, very soft materials can also be measured without having to switch to other measuring methods. To this end, the measuring range can also be extended to the range of –5 to 100 Shore A.

Precise measuring by miniature drive

In order to pinpoint the particular measur-ing position for ultra-miniature samples with the nano-Shore durometer, devel-opers use a specimen holder with a laser positioning reticle. In this way, regardless of the item’s geometry, the penetration point is defined via the reticle. Measurements at different positions such as wave crests or troughs are possible without any problems whatsoever on the top of the protrusion or the base surface. The pro-cedure can also be successfully used for composite materials. Starting from a crosssection of 1 mm², qualified results are assured. Once the laser allows the predetermined position to be targeted, the vertical measuring movement of the needle is pinpointed through a miniature servomotor.

FAULHABER application engineers had to keep several application requirements in mind when selecting the motor: a small design to comply with the compact device measurements, the largely self-powered operation of the motor to reduce the load on the device electronics, and naturally also a high resolution in positioning mode. For this special case, a DC-Servomotor with integrated motion controller proved to be ideal for measuring dimensions of 35 mm in diameter and 83 mm in length. With 50 mNm output torque on the shaft and up to a 90 W power rating, the mechanical system can be positioned without any problems whatsoever. The connected controller provides speed control, precise speed profiles, stepper motor mode and positioning mode. The latter is of key importance here. With a resolution of up to 1/3,000 revolution and the option of accounting for reference marks and limit switch positions, the drive is able to follow the precise specifications of the measuring instrument electronics.

Penetration example on an O-ring

An RS232 interface enables communication with the external logic. The controller intelligence processes all drive-relevant data internally, thereby reducing the load on the actual electronic measuring equipment. What’s more, self-security against overloads and excess voltage as well as an error output are integrated into the drive. The desired functions such as run programs, speed ramps etc. can be stored in the motion controller.

Modern micro-drive technology is able to match the diversity of its larger technological brothers in every way. Internal sensor system and controller technology compute drive-relevant data internally within the drive. In this way, developers no longer even have to concern themselves with the actual drive technology. In many cases, this significantly reduces both overall development costs and the time to market.
