Mahr Federal will be featuring a new skidless surface evaluation system as part of its MarSurf line of mobile surface metrology systems.
Skidless tracing of surface characteristics allows the capture of primary, waviness and roughness profiles for the evaluation of more complex parameters. The new surface gage offers this capability in an entry-level system.
The surface gage features motorized probe height adjustment that automatically zeros the probe in seconds and can cut measurement time in half, the company says. The system features a magnetic, breakaway probe mounting system that protects sensitive probes from accidental damage and facilitates fast probe changes. The gage measures all common international parameters and features Bluetooth connectivity between the measuring system and the evaluation unit with integrated thermal printer.
The measuring unit can be used alone, in different orientations, in combination with various accessories or mounted on a measuring stand. A large color display on the evaluation unit provides clear, concise results and operator guidance. The unit is compatible with all appropriate DIN, ISO, JIS, ASME and MOTIF standards for the measure of most common surface finish parameters from the P, W and R profiles.
The company will also display a new generation of its MarCal digital calipers; the Digimar 816 CL height gage; Dimensionair, Millimar and MaraMeter plug gages; and its µMaxµm line of digital indicators.
