Gaging Software aids in calibration productivity.

Press Release Summary:

Windows NT-based software for models 828 CiM and PC length measurement systems improves measurement efficiency and manages verification process for unlimited number of gages. Software lets technicians check gage and record results in database quickly. It has user-friendly operator interface, library of ANSI standards for measuring every type of gage, and automatic recall of measurement setup and last result upon entering gage ID number.

Original Press Release:


PROVIDENCE, RI -- Manufacturers with large inventories of gages, tooling and fixtures, and calibration houses can achieve significant improvements in verification productivity with Mahr Federal's new software release for its 828 CiM and PC model length measurement systems.

Enhanced with a Pentium 3 processor and powerful new Windows NT-based software, the 828 is the industry's most repeatable, direct length measurement machine for improving measurement efficiency and managing the verification process for an unlimited number of gages. The new system can dramatically improve verification productivity and reduce costs without sacrificing accuracy.

With this new software and minimal training, technicians can check a gage and record the results in a database faster than they can package it to ship to a calibration house. Significant features of the software include:

Easy-to-use operator interface with networkable Windows NT operating system;

Capability to track measurement setups and results for an infinite number of gages;

Self-contained library of ANSI standards for measuring every type of gage;

Automatic recall of measurement setup and last result upon entering gage ID number. Allows for immediate comparison of year-to-year changes;

Extensive, user-friendly help menu with a complete on-line manual.

The 828 CiM and PC are rigid stand-alone length measuring systems, each with a 3-legged stand for superior stability and fast leveling. With a gaging uncertainty of .000004", the 828 is rivaled only by comparative measurement systems with highly skilled operators for accuracy and repeatability.

The base price of an 828 system is $98,000. Companies with large gage and tooling inventories can recover this cost in less than one or two years based on productivity savings.
