Mitutoyo’s Surftest Probe and Surfpak-SP software allows surface roughness analysis on a Mitutoyo CNC CMM and eliminates the need for workpiece change-over to a second measurement device.
An auto-joint probe system allows probe changing automatically between touch trigger and/or scanning probes with the Surftest Probe, combining dimensional evaluation and surface finish analysis in a single operation. A PH10M or 10MQ articulating probe head allows access to features requiring rotation for surface roughness measurement. The system integrates two well-developed software packages to provide a comprehensive solution. The modular design of Mitutoyo MCOSMOS coordinate measurement software allows seamless integration of Surfpak-SP software to perform surface roughness analysis while the Geopak module of MCOSMOS controls the Surftest Probe movement and calibration functions. Available detectors include: standard-type, deep groove, small hole, extra-small hole and gear tooth surface. The CMM Surftest Probe has multiple measurement ranges and speeds.
