Blum-Novotest presents the TC64-RG, a surface roughness gage designed for checking part surface finish before removing the part from a CNC machining center. The gage can accurately determine a part’s roughness in its original orientation with the gage’s design and integrated Digilog-technology that supports analogue scanning of the part, eliminating the need to reset the part.

New software developed for FANUC, Heidenhain, and Siemens controls eases integration with controls for various applications. Surface data such as Ra, Rz, and Rmax values are sampled at more than 1,000 Hz/sec. and recorded directly with the control. The gage supports an integrated process of control for manufacturers using automated surface finish analysis, enabling the operator to quickly correct issues.
