Mahr Federal to Introduce the MarSurf® XR 1 Surface Measuring System at IMTS 2012

PROVIDENCE, RI - Mahr Federal will be introducing the MarSurf® XR 1, an economical, mobile, PC based surface measuring system, at IMTS, Sept 10-15, 2012, at McCormick Place, Chicago. Mahr Federal will occupy booth #E-5242.

With the introduction of the MarSurf® XR 1 surface measuring system, Mahr has bridged the gap between portable surface measuring devices and larger, full-featured, PC-based surface measurement and evaluation systems. The MarSurf XR 1 combines the skidded and skidless drive units of Mahr's portable M-Series instruments, with its industry leading MarWin evaluation software. The new XR 1 provides an affordable entry into the world of modern, PC-based measurement and evaluation systems, including compliance with all International Standards, diverse evaluation methods, extensive documentation, large storage capacity, data export and import, as well as networking and other benefits.

The MarSurf XR 1 is suitable for use either in the measurement lab or on the shop floor, and provides over 80 parameters for R, P, W profiles according to current DIN, ISO, JIS, ASME and MOTIF Standards. The system can utilize both the MarSurf RD 18 drive unit with skidded probe and the MarSurf SD 26 drive unit with skidless probe, and virtually any number of drive units can be connected to the evaluation unit via Bluetooth or cable. Measuring units can be used alone in different orientations, in combination with various accessories, or mounted on measuring stands. Measurements can be initiated either by touch screen on a PC or manually on the drive units.

The MarSurf XR 1 comes standard with a basic version of Mahr's leading MarWin surface evaluation software, which includes Measuring Station View; automatic user login; R, Rk, P, W, Motif, and D-profile and parameters; Export ASCII; Profile Assistant for USB; and Measuring Assistant Level 1 for simple setup of measurement conditions. However, all the additional features of the XR 20 evaluation software are also available as option packages. These include: an Advanced Evaluation package with interactive zoom; virtual rulers and PDF file export; a Multi-Measure option package which expands the Measuring Assistant to Levels 2 and 3, as well as providing additional statistics and administration functions; an Advanced Reporting option with PageDesigner to create template forms and provide tolerance monitoring and display; a Script Program Integration option; Digital I/O, QS-STAT, and Profile Processing Options; and many more.
