|Ametek Taylor Hobson's Surtronic R-Series roundness and form tester|
Ametek Taylor Hobson has introduced a high-throughput roundness measuring system suitable for the shop floor and the inspection room. Applications include the dental and medical industries.
The Surtronic R-Series roundness and form testers use an orientation mechanism that allows the operator to easily position a part for measurement in as little as 20 s. A patented centring attachment means that a user does not need to recentre the tester when using it to measure a series of similar parts.
The instruments are designed for measuring high volume-bearing parts (including raceway, ball, needle and roller bearings) and for a range of quality control applications.
ISO-compliant measurements can be taken with ±25nm accuracy and 6 nm gauge resolution. Results are displayed on a touch-screen interface using the X-sight software.
The instruments are designed for 24/7 operation in demanding environments. A range of accessories and standards is available.
Taylor Hobson is a manufacturer of ultraprecision measurement instruments for a wide range of markets including optics, semiconductors, manufacturing, nanotechnology and the dental and medical markets. It is a unit of Ametek Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices.
