Mahr Inc., a leading provider of dimensional metrology solutions, introduces the first in new a line of surface finish and contour measurement systems, the MarSurf contour drive (CD) series. The MarSurf CD series is said to take contour measurement to never-before-seen levels of speed, flexibility and precision, allowing users to improve the manufacturing quality of workpieces with faster throughput, higher accuracy and flexibility for a broader range of workpieces. The MarSurf CD allows for the measurement of the shape of a surface, often referred to as the contour or form, and provides dimensional information such as angles, depths, distances and radius.
The groundbreaking design of the MarSurf series significantly increases the speed of all moving axes to reduce the cycle time of the measurement process, allowing more throughput. The drive units of the MarSurf CD series move the contour probe with positioning speeds of up to 200 mm/sec., making the system up to 25 times faster than predecessors. All Z-axis columns on the measuring stands of the MarSurf CD series are fully CNC-capable with fast positioning speeds of 50 mm/sec., which is twice as fast as previous systems and five times faster than others on the market. The high dynamic response of the probe system also allows for significantly higher measuring speeds with newly-designed probe arms.“The MarSurf CD series sets a new standard in contour testing, providing our customers with the speed, accuracy and flexibility to measure more effectively and efficiently,” says Pat Nugent, Vice President of Product Management at Mahr.
