Mida 'WRS' - The Most Compact World Radio Transmission Probing System - New from Marposs at IMTS 2010

Auburn Hills, MI - Marposs Corp. is introducing its new Mida WRS System at IMTS 2010 products in booth # E-5521 at IMTS, Sept. 13-18, 2010, in Chicago. Mida WRS is the new Marposs touch probing system with radio transmission for world-wide use.

The applied transmission frequency band is 2.4 GHz, permitting this single system to be used in applications in most parts of the world. The spherical transmission characteristics and 15 m operating range make the WRS both flexible and powerful. The system automatically searches for the best signal among the 74 available radio channels in order to guarantee optimum communication conditions between the probe and the receiver at all times. Additional sub-channels permit the use of multiple probes on the same machine by means of a simple NC selection code.

The WRS receiver interface features a unique remote programming capability and a four-digit display, ensuring that important user messages are clear, immediate and precise and enabling the user to easily program and check the system.

As with most of the other Marposs Mida line products, the new WRS features a modular design, offering the use of different probes with exceptional repeatability of up to 0,5µm at 2 (0.5 micron at 2 Sigma), as well as high resistance against coolant and chips.

The WRS characteristics make this radio transmission probing system ideal for use on large or 5-axis machines, such as milling machines, machining centers or turning centers.

Other new products to be presented by Marposs at IMTS include the new Protomar 300 in-process absolute gauge for grinders that eliminates the need for a dedicated setup master for each part or diameter ground; the new Gage Pod data acquisition system for use on applications from simple manual gauging to fully automatic measurement and inspection systems; and the i-Wave wireless interface unit for mechanical gauges.
