Measurement of The Cycloidal Drive Sleeves and Pins

In the paper, an issue of CMM measurement strategy of the sleeves and pins designed for wear tests in the cycloidal drive. The measurement strategy was proposed, based on initial out-of-roundness measurement in scanning mode. Proposed approach ensured that the pin was measured along its entire 40 mm length with only small area of fixation ca. 5 mm left out, and all probing points for cylindricity deviation assessment were collected in one fixation. It was demonstrated that the cylindricity and roundness measurement results based on 8, 16 and 48 probing points provided sufficient data for further wear analysis. In some cases, the circles calculated from 4 points gave additional insights allowing to accept the part that otherwise might be possibly rejected.
