The MMQ 200 Formtester cylindricity machine features the T7W, a ±360 degree, motorized, bi-directional probe designed for automated probe positioning. According to the company, automation improves measurement accuracy and repeatability. Complete with EasyForm version 3.0 software, the cylindricity machine is suited for both the metrology lab and shop floor.
The intuitive software interface guides users through measurement setup and operation, the company says. Measurement results are immediately displayed on the screen, including 3D representation with color and grid lines. Results can be printed, saved or exported for analysis in other software packages.
Optimized for the measure of cylindricity through rotational table axis and vertical axis integration, the machine can also perform a full range of ISO and ASME form checks including roundness, straightness, flatness (from a polar trace), parallelism, concentricity, coaxiality, runout, total runout, taper, perpendicularity, angularity and angle sector (roundness, flatness, runout).
