PROVIDENCE, RI -- Mahr Federal will be featuring the new option package for their well-known MarForm MMQ 200 Formtester at Design & Manufacturing South, March 16-17, 2011, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL. Mahr Federal will occupy booth #1021.
The new option package for the MarForm MMQ 200 Formtester provides the measurement of surface finish parameters according to accepted ISO, ASME, and JIS standards. With the combined hardware/software MMQ 200 Surface Finish option, operators will benefit from reduced set-up and measurement cycle time, and reduced cost by needing only a single piece of equipment for both form and surface measurements.
MMQ 200 was designed with roughness measurements in mind, and can sample data with spacing down to 0.5 microns, well within accepted international standards for roughness measurement. The roughness option package utilizes the same skidded diamond-tipped PHT stylus as is used on Mahr Federal's PS1 and M300 surface finish machines, and the same MarWin-based surface finish software as the MarSurf® XR 20. The stylus is mounted opposite the ruby-tipped form probe on the MMQ 200's motorized T7W probe head. The MMQ 200 automatically swivels the probe to apply the diamond stylus, and changes from horizontal to vertical measurement as needed, utilizing standard surface finish parameter cut-off lengths. A skidless probe measuring option is also available.
Also on display at Mahr Federal's Design & Manufacturing South booth #1021 will be:
o The new MarCheck measuring and evaluation unit for Mahr's high precision Linear 100 universal length measuring instrument. MarCheck allows both measurements and calibrations to be performed quickly and reliably at the touch of a button.
o A new generation of its popular line of MarCal digital calipers. Included are a number of innovations, such as lapped guideways, a new Reference System which retains the zero position setting, and an increased number of product options and accessories.
o The new Digimar® 816 CL Height Gage which provides highly accurate measurements without complicated procedures. Robust design and user-friendly operation combine with advanced features and functionality to improve dimensional measurement on the shop floor or in the lab.
A full range of other Mahr Federal handheld gages and other dimensional metrology products will also be on display.
