Tick tock


Quality control of a watch maker

Time flies or does it? The important question in this application is how long the watch was turned and how long it ticks afterwards. The Certina company checks in its quality control, among other things, whether the watches reach the minimum running time. For this purpose, they use a xyz gantry from igus and a camera. With this, all watches can be approached individually and checked via camera image. The advantage of the xyz gantry is that it is lubricant-free, so that the clocks are not contaminated. And the adaptability of the dimensions of the gantry.
