Automated Design’s Size, Weight, and Compression (SWC) system accurately reports the physical characteristics of any golf ball or core, and the system is available to test balls from other sports. Fully automated, the system is controlled from a networkable computer, which records all the data it collects into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
The SWC Consists of a variety of testing stations. The system integrates a SCARA style robot to move balls from station to station. Each test can be custom written to allow for different routines for many different styles of testing.
The SWC auto-removes balls from the tray and maintains the balls orientation throughout the test. The system can also test the ball at multiple points along the balls perimeter, all relative to the position the ball is placed on the tray. Each ball has an identity corresponding to tray position.
