Mahr Federal to Feature New MarShaft(TM) SCOPE 250 Plus at Metrology Solutions Expo

Also on display will be MarVision MM 320 and QM 300 Video Measuring Microscopes, MarCal Wireless Digital Calipers, and MarCator Digital Indicators

PROVIDENCE, RI – Mahr Federal will feature the MarShaft™ SCOPE 250 plus, along with the MarVision MM 320, the MarVision QM 300, and MarCal digital calipers and MarCator digital indicators at the first Metrology Solutions Expo, May 4-5, 2016, TD Convention Center in the James H. Woodside Conference Center, Greenville, SC.

The first Metrology Solutions Expo will feature all types of precision measuring tools, gages, fixtures, systems and software used in manufacturing applications, and will include demonstrations of the latest precision metrology equipment from the world's leading names in the quality business.

Said Kurt Braun, Vice President/Sales, Mahr Federal, "Mahr is proud to be a sponsor of the first ever Metrology Solutions Expo. Mahr's extensive offerings in dimensional metrology solutions and 154 years of expertise, along with the increasing manufacturing activity in the southeast region, will make this a very powerful event!"

Mahr Federal's MarShaft SCOPE 250 plus, is competitively priced and designed to provide fast, accurate, fully automatic measurement of smaller shafts and turned parts directly on the shop floor. It features a highly accurate matrix camera with four million pixels, and measures parts up to 250 mm in length and 40 mm in diameter with an accuracy that is previously unknown in this market segment. Its MPE (Maximum Permissible Error) of less than 1.5 microns + L/40 when measuring diameter and an even more impressive 3 microns + L/125 when measuring length is significantly more accurate than other systems using line cameras.

Also on display at Metrology Solutions Expo will be:

• The MarVision MM 320 and QM 300 video measuring microscopes with image processing capability. Designed for the measurement and/or dimensioning of geometric elements, the MM 320 and QM 300 incorporate integrated CCD color cameras with zoom lens, 23" touchscreen PCs with keyboard and mouse, and easy-to-use Windows based M3 software.

• MarCal digital calipers and MarCator digital indicators with wireless data transmission capability. Both send data to a small i-stick receiver, resembling a common USB flash drive. MarCom software makes data acquisition simple: just take a measurement and transmit measuring data directly into MS Excel or via a keyboard code into any Windows program without the need for external transmitters or cumbersome add on transmitters.

Also on display will be selections from Mahr Federal's broad line of surface measuring instruments, including both portable roughness measurement devices and computer based stationary surface measuring systems. In addition to the new PocketSurf® IV, there will be the MarSurf® PS1, the MarSurf M300, and the MarSurf M400. Mahr's stationary system line includes the MarSurf XR 1, which combines mobile surface metrology with the advantages of MarWin evaluation software; and the MarSurf XCR20 that combines roughness and contour measurement systems.
