Roughness measurement for shopfloor

Taylor Hobson has announced the launch of the latest addition to its shopfloor range of surface roughness instruments - the skidless Surtronic 25s. 

The Surtronic 25s has a large 25mm straightness datum (0.3um/25mm) with a wide gauge range of 0.5mm allowing ease of set up. The instrument has a resolution of down to 0.01um.

Yet the 25s has also been designed to be fully self-contained - the measurement stylus, powerful processor and built-in storage function are all contained in one handheld battery operated unit. This makes the Surtronic 25s easy to move around the shopfloor for measurements such as wear analysis, waviness measurements of sealing faces such as on engine blocks and cylinder heads, turbine blade edge measurements and small lands and features.

With a choice of 27 different parameters built into the instrument, the Surtronic 25s covers the most common requirements in a single unit. Parameters include Rk and bearing ratio analysis, waviness and R&W motifs. Up to 100 measurement sets can be saved on the Surtronic 25s. More in-depth graphical analysis can be carried out with optional Talyprofile analysis software.

The Surtronic 25s will be demonstrated at the forthcoming tradeshows, Control (Stuttgart, stand 1302, hall 1) at Mach (Birmingham, stand 5088). For further details and brochures contact technical support agent, Spectrum Metrology (tel 0116 2766262.
