BETWEEN CENTERS

Standard zero center assemblies are used between centers

Ball arbor positions part axis

Concentricity or squareness is checked using a dial test set or special fixed gages

SPECIAL FIXTURE DESIGN ~

Part is loaded into a ball chuck and zero sweep units or depth units are positioned to suit

Part is rotated freely on it's true axis

O.D. runout in two places as well as both faces are read on the indicators
