Mahr introduces length measurement instrument for shop floor parts
August 13, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
August 13, 2019 – Mahr, a provider of dimensional metrology solutions, has introduced the new Precimar SM 60, a length measurement instrument for fast and precise external measurements on shop floor parts, with a measuring range of 60 mm.
The SM 60 is configurable with Mahr readouts, such as digital indicators or LVDT probes, to provide a system tailored to the performance level required for the measurement application. The SM 60 incorporates a 25 mm sensitive contact and a fixed reference jaw with a 35 mm adjustment to obtain the full 60 mm measurement capacity.
The user is provided the ability to select the best readout for level of performance and application of the measurement. Should versatility be the driving factor, a 25 mm MarCator 1086 or 1087 may be the indicator of choice with its large display or analog type dial. Having this range allows for measuring a wide range of size parts without having to adjust the system. If higher resolution and performance are required, a Millimar P2004 LVDT with +/-2mm range and C1200 bench amplifier are able to provide sub-micron performance at the machining process.
The optional measuring instrument, whether it be a long-range digital indicator or high performance, short-range transducer, is always protected from over range damage by the integrated coupling.
Hardened contact surfaces on both the sensitive and reference contacts ensure long life, even after measuring high volumes of part dimensions. A family of measuring attachments for the standard contacts is available. These include contacts with radius surfaces, flat-edge contacts, and flat contacts with various diameters, allowing for plain OD checks for adding gage pin wires, OD thread checking and a threaded contact set for adding any of Mahr’s standard M 2,5 threaded contacts.
