West Yorkshire-based tooling supplier Cutwel has announced an expanded range of new measuring tools for 2015, with catalogues from leading metrology suppliers Mahr and Insize available on request.
Cutwel says that one of the highlights of the extended Insize range is the new Ultrasonic Hardness Tester (ISHU-460 Series). This gives the ability to test surface hardening layers and plating for steel, non-ferrous metal and alloys.
Large work pieces can be tested in any direction and the tester is also suitable for rough surfaces. The test time is just 2 seconds and the test force applied is independent of the operator.
The hardness tester has a memory for 1000 test results, pictures can be taken of the workpiece and and you can get a report of the testing results which can be sent to a computer via a USB connection.
A highlight of the Mahr range is the Self-Centering Dial-Bore Gage MaraMeter. Cutwel says this is ideal for measuring difficult to reach bore diameters, grooves and recesses. It is universally applicable and extremely versatile as every instrument spans a broad measuring range, within this series it is quick and easy to adjust to any size.
The measuring head consists of a carbide-tipped moving anvil and interchangeable stationary anvil which has a carbide ball.
