Dynamic Run-out

Dynamic Run-out, now industry standard terminology, was first coined by Lion Precision when the original TARGA Dynamic Run-out System was introduced.  It was the first and only system that could measure spindle run-out at operating speeds. The only run-out measurement that really counts. RPM measurements and printed reports require connection  to a computer running proprietary software not included.

Capacitive vs. Eddy-Current Sensors

Some run-out sensors use eddy-current technology.  Eddy-current technology does not work well with rotating, ferromagnetic targets. The Targa III uses capacitive sensors which are not affected by a rotating target. This chart shows run-out measurements of the same spindle using eddy current and capacitive sensors.
