Mahr has signed a cooperation agreement with NanoFocus, a German manufacturer of 3D surface metrology products, to offer its confocal microscopes in the United States under the product family MarSurf CM. The agreement expands Mahr’s tactile portfolio with optical metrology.

The confocal product range is used in medical technology, the automotive industry, materials management and manufacturing for electrical engineering. In addition to the high measurement speed, the optical measuring systems work independently of the material and without contact for sensitive surfaces.

Optical measurement technology is becoming increasingly important for many applications due to its high measurement speed and accuracy, prompting Mahr to expanding its product portfolio with these high-resolution, confocal 3D surface measuring systems. 


  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • Going Lean in Order to Grow

    This shop has a plan for dramatically expanding its contract machining business in high-value markets.

  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.
