CB110 Sidewinder - 
Cylinder Bore Inspection

Precision Thickness Gauge for High-Performance Automotive Applications

The CB110 Sidewinder Precision Thickness Gauge is used for measuring the wall thickness of automotive cylinder bores, head ports and other components can be important for quality control in manufacturing or in a boring process where a minimum thickness must be maintained.  Cast aluminium or steel engine blocks can be otherwise difficult to inspect with complex geometry and limited access making the CB-110 a perfect choice.

NDT Systems developed this precision thickness gauge for the automotive restoration and racing industry.  Today, it is used in consumer car, construction, and motorcycle engine departments across the world. 

 This instrument provides these manufacturers and repair facilities with the confidence that their respective manufacturing processes are accurate and meeting quality standards, allowing them to better manage risk.

Today, it is used in consumer car, construction, and motorcycle engine departments across the globe.  This instrument provides these manufacturers and repair facilities with the confidence that their respective manufacturing processes are accurate and meet quality standards, allowing them to better manage risk.

 

Measuring the wall thickness of automotive cylinder bores, head ports and other components can be important for quality control in manufacturing or in a boring process where a minimum thickness must be maintained. 

 Cast aluminium or steel engine blocks can be otherwise difficult to inspect with complex geometry and limited access.

 Ultrasonic thickness gauging allows for these measurements to be made.  With dedicated probes that are contoured to the shape of the cylinder or pencil probes to access tight spaces, thickness measurements can be made with confidence.

 

Whether for use in building racing cars or classic car restoration, the Nova CB110 Sonic Checker will meet virtually all of your automotive inspection requirements. No other handheld instrument with this ease of operation can offer the kind of information available from the CB110 Sonic Tester.

 

By pressing one single key you are presented with the unique ability to display a LIVE, Scrolling Cross-Section View or plot of the inspection zone, trouble areas will be easily identifiable. Just slide the sensor up or down an area of interest, such as a cylinder bore and you will be presented with a Cross-Section View of that scan line.

 

Along with the Scrolling Cross Section View, the CB110 Sonic Tester can store individual thickness readings in a ready made log file for each cylinder for download or report printing at a later time. 

 Log files are stored using up to 32 characters, therefore, allowing the identification of the block at a later date or to show the customer as an example.   No other gauge offers this professional approach to engine inspection and reporting.  These reports can be printed directly from the CB110 Sonic Checker itself to an available portable printer or saved to a PC via the Data Transfer Kit.

 

The CB110 Sonic Tester is available with a broad array of sensors for those complex inspection requirements such as seen when inspecting various ports of a Cylinder Head.  Although the CB110 Sonic Tester offers the most extensive set of features available in a hand held thickness gauge, we recognise you may just want to simply measure the thickness.  Nothing could be easier - Simply "zero" the sensor and calibrate the unit by pressing the thickness up or down arrows with no menu selection needed.
