Taylor Hobson Introduces Surtronic® S-100 Series Durable and Portable Surface Roughness Tester is Designed for Inspection Room or Shop Floor
LEICESTER, ENGLAND — Working closely with manufacturers across a range of industries, including precision component and bearings producers, Taylor Hobson, a global leader in ultra-precision measurement instrumentation, has developed a new series of portable roughness testers robust enough for the shop floor, while flexible enough for any inspection room.
The new Surtronic® S-100 Series has the versatility to meet the roughness requirements of a host of surface measurement applications. It features a 50mm stylus lift with right-angle attachment and a more than 70mm stylus reach that allows even the most challenging surface measurement without the use of expensive risers, blocks, stands or fixtures. The practical and versatile stylus can even measure upside down.
When equipped with an S-100 Series stand and printer, the rugged, compact device can be used as a fully integrated roughness measurement solution.
Through its industry-standard USB and USB mini ports, S-100 Series instruments offer users an extensive range of connectivity options. Roughness measurements for multiple parts can either be stored internally or saved to a standard USB memory device. The USB port also can be used to attach a portable printer, allowing printed data to accompany a part to the next stage of manufacture or end use. The USB mini port can be used to charge the device with any standard USB charger or for connection to a PC for data analysis and reporting.
The rugged Surtronic S-100 is built to last. Its rubberized, impact-resistant body offers protection and an improved comfort grip. It surrounds a recessed, Mylar-protected high-durability touch screen and a solid stainless steel drive mechanism with anti-wear gears and bearings. The device is powered by a 3000mAh heavy-duty Li-Poly battery that can provide up 2000 measurements from a single charge.
Along with the above features, three versions of advanced Talyprofile surface finish analysis software is available for the Surtronic S-100 Series: a “Lite” version has all of the functions typically used for shop floor inspection; a “Silver” version has enhanced features and a full report printing capability; and a “Gold” version has complete laboratory analysis functions. All three versions include multi-language support, desktop publishing templates, and roughness and waviness curves.
