Model 1304

Model 1304 Multi-headed Camshaft Inspection System

The Adcole Model 1304 camshaft system offers a horizontal load option in single head configuration, with available two and four head versions, for increased throughput. The Model 1304 can switch between multiple part types, at the touch of a button. An automated version, ready for load by gantry or robot, is an available option. Adcole’s Trusted Accuracy comes standard on every Model 1304.

Adcole Model 1304 Camshaft gauge

The flexibility and versatility of this gaging system is comparable to a single headed gage but this gage will complete a part inspection in a fraction of the time. Each carriage and follower is programmed to move and be positioned individually. Despite the tremendous gains in cycle time, there is no sacrifice in accuracy or capability. Change over to different part types is simple and direct. Tailstock adjustments, to account for different part lengths, are fast and easy.


Measured results can be viewed on the monitor, printed or forwarded to an SPC collection site. With the user-friendly Windows platform, programming and output report formatting is flexible and easy. Similar to other Adcole gage models, reporting can provide actual measured dimensions and tolerance deviations for easy interpretation.
