Main Question or Discussion Point
A little background: Inspection room is kept at 20 C +/-2 C. Temperature gauge is accurate to +/-.5 C. Outside ambient temperature where parts are kept can vary from 5 C to 38 C. One part in particular is a rotor made of 4340 steel, ~2350mm long, average diameter of 115mm, and weighs ~ 650lbs. There are lengths that are in the 2000mm range with a +/-.100mm tolerance and diameters in the 120mm range with tolerances of +/-.013mm that I have to accurately measure. Typically, we allow the rotors to acclimate for 24 hours but because of "schedules" they want me to figure out how to reduce the acclimation time. Any help is appreciated.
