Mitutoyo Roundtest® RA-2100 Systems Support Multiple Measurement Modes

(Aurora, IL) New Roundtest® RA-2100 Series roundness/cylindricity measurement systems from Mitutoyo America Corporation offer extreme flexibility of function and operation. While supporting the full range of roundness measurement routines, Roundtest RA-2100 can also be equipped to perform precision surface roughness testing. Additionally, Roundtest RA-2100 systems offer a choice of fully-automatic, or manual navigation-type workpiece centering.

The Mitutoyo Roundtest RA-2100 measures the full range of rotational parameters associated with roundness/cylindricity including: roundness (LSC/MZC/MIC/MCC), flatness (single circumference, multiple circumference), squareness (against axis, against plane), concentricity, coaxiality (of section, of axis), parallelism (single-radius, multiple-radius), thickness deviation, run-out and diameter. The system also performs rectilinear measurements including straightness, taper ratio, slope, and can also generate spiral measurements.

When equipped with a roughness detector probe (optional), the Mitutoyo Roundtest RA-2100 becomes a full-featured, high precision surface roughness testing system. With the Mitutoyo Roundtest RA-2100, workpieces can be fixtured once - then inspected two ways - for improved process productivity.

Roundtest RA-2100 supports two types of workpiece centering and leveling. High-speed, automatic centering and leveling utilizing Mitutoyo high-accuracy linear scales minimizes positioning error while rapidly yielding results.

Roundtest RA-2100 also offers DAT (Digital Adjustment Table) aided, navigation-type centering and leveling that makes manual set-up quick and easy, even for untrained operators.

Roundtest RA-2100 turntables utilize a high-precision air bearing suspension for extremely accurate rotation and elimination of performance deterioration due to wear.

Roundtest RA-2100 systems use RoundPak 5.0, a powerful graphical user interface which includes solid 3-D modeling as part of the intuitive part-program editing routine, as well as graphical machine controls and a selection of easy-to-interpret graphical measurement-analysis tools. It is a turnkey system complete with controller and software pre-loaded into an included PC with flat panel display and color printer.
