Surface finish measurement

  • 17-May-2011 04:18 EDT

The option package for Mahr Federal’s MarForm MMQ200 Formtester provides the measurement of surface finish parameters according to ISO, ASME, and JIS standards. With the combined hardware/software surface finish option, operators will benefit from reduced setup and measurement cycle time as well as reduced cost by requiring only a single piece of equipment for form and surface measurements. The system can sample data with spacing down to 0.5 µm. The diamond-tipped PHT stylus is mounted opposite the ruby-tipped form probe on the unit's motorized T7W probe head. The system automatically swivels the probe to apply the stylus, and it changes from horizontal to vertical measurement as needed.
