Simplexity built a unique manufacturing tool that brings custom precision to the manufacturing floor that adjusts the loft and lie angles of golf clubs with unprecedented speed and precision.
Bullseye is the world's first optically-based 6-DOF instrument capable of both measuring loft and lie angles to ultra-high precision, and enabling the operator to adjust those angles with state-of-the-art accuracy. The upper camera system measures the angle of the golf club shaft in space, while the inertial inclinometer measures the orientation of the club face with respect to gravity. At the same time, a third camera in the clamp reports the angle of the lie lines inscribed on the face of the club.
Together these variables are used to calculate loft and lie angles, and the deviation of those angles is graphically displayed in real time on the output monitor. The highly intuitive GUI enables even untrained operators to quickly and accurately adjust club angles to meet the specification.
This unique piece of industrial production equipment showcases Simplexity’s ability to integrate mechanical, electrical, and optical components with intelligent software design. Built and assembled in-house, it stands 80” tall and occupies a modest 44” x 32” footprint. Bullseye units have been working in a factory setting for more than a decade delivering reliable and profitable performance for this sporting goods manufacturer.
