New AMETEK Taylor Hobson 500H measures roundness, profile and surface finish on a single platform
A precision surface measurement tool featuring an industry-leading high-speed column drive, precision positioning and 4mm roundness and contour gauge has been introduced by Taylor Hobson, a unit of AMETEK, Inc. (www.taylor-hobson.com). The new Talyrond 500H measures roundness, profile and surface finish on a single platform with high accuracy due to an extremely low noise floor.
• Automotive & parts
• Machine tools
• Agricultural machinery
It is ideally suited for high-accuracy measuring applications including precision bearings, fuel injectors, crankshafts and turbocharger parts. Numerous specialized accessories allow the instrument to accommodate the industry’s most demanding applications.
It accurately duplicates a machine tool’s movements and exactly reproduces a work piece shape. This allows the Talyrond 500H to provide users with rapid feedback for efficient quality assurance.
A low-noise metrology frame, accurate axis alignment and a patented data collection method provide it with unmatched straightness and roundness measurement capabilities. A high-resolution gauge measures linear or circumferential surface roughness. A frictionless air-bearing spindle and precision column measure roundness, cylindricity and straightness. A patented calibration technique performs radius, angle, height, length and distance measurements.
Simplified teach and learn programming techniques, comprehensive user prompts and on-screen instructions combine for easy, error-free operation. It performs calibration, center and level functions along with measuring routines automatically.
Taylor Hobson is a leading manufacturer of ultra-precision measurement instruments for a wide range of markets including optics, semiconductors, manufacturing and nanotechnology research. It is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annual sales of more than US$3.6 billion.
