What's Our Angle?

AM75_2013 2


The AM75 (Angle Meister) is a digital protractor designed to measure the bend angle of numerous bent configurations with the use of one fixed arm and one dynamic arm. This is a precision, built-to-last machine that provides simplicity for bend angle measuring and ensures the most accurate real-time bend angle updates with its ability to be calibrated upon power up or at any other point during its operation.

Read what Donnie Moses at American Metal Technology, Inc. has to say. 

“The AM75 has performed well for American Metal Technology.  The machine gives very accurate angular measurements to the tenth of a degree.  The encoder on our previous machine worked in hundredths of a rotation.  1/100 of a rotation is 3.6 degrees.  So prior to the purchase and implementation the best we could hope for was to be within 3.6 degrees of nominal.  Now with the AM75 we have increased our encoder resolution to 1/1000 of a rotation allowing our total variation on rotation to be controlled within .36 degrees +/-.  Winton modified its AM75 with the taller fences allowing us to measure a full range of PVC coils that we manufacture.  It is no hindrance measuring smaller parts but is invaluable in measuring a coil 16-18” tall.  The specially modified AM 75 we purchased has now been incorporated into our daily work instructions and inspection procedures.”
