Mahr Federal to Feature New Digimar® 817 CLM Height Gage At MD&M West

PROVIDENCE, RI -- Mahr Federal will be featuring its innovative Digimar® 817 CLM Height Measuring Instrument at MD&M West, January 29-31, 2008, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. Mahr Federal will occupy booth #2885.

Mahr Federal's new Digimar® 817 CLM Height Measuring Instrument offers three distinct ways to initiate measurement. In addition to normal keypad initiation, a Quick Mode feature allows the measurement cycle to be initiated by simply pushing the carriage in the direction of the object to be measured. Also, two Speed Keys on the base allow the operator to comfortably move the measuring carriage to the desired position and start a measurement. Combined with an easy-to-program Teach-In Mode, these features can greatly reduce inspection time for a mini series consisting of only a few test pieces.

The new Digimar 817 CLM offers more. An air bearing system facilitates smooth movement for positioning. An optical incremental measuring system with a double reader head is insensitive to dirt, ensuring accuracy and reliability. A dynamic probing system provides high repeatability, and a stainless steel guide column with precision ball bearings precisely tracks the measuring head.

The Digimar 817 CLM offers a wide range of measurement functions in both 1 D or optional 2 D, including dynamic measurement functions with analog display such as Max, Min and Max/Min. Automatic perpendicularity and straightness measurements can be performed with appropriate accessories, and data can be printed via a USB-connected printer, saved on integrated USB memory, or output for additional processing via an RS232-interface. Additional measuring instruments can also be connected with an Opto-RS232-interface.

Mahr Federal 's new MarCator 1081 Digital Indicator, and the MarCator 1088 Digital Indicator which provides color tolerance display, will also be on display at the Mahr Federal booth, along with surface, contour and form measurement systems; shaft measurement instruments; precision length measurement systems; air gaging; numerous electronic and mechanical gages; and hand-held measurement tools.
