Mahr will introduce the new MarSurf® PS 10 Roughness Measuring Unit at IMTS 2016, September 12-17, 2016.
The MarSurf PS 10 from Mahr is a practical roughness measuring unit for mobile use. Using a smartphone-like 4.3" TFT touch screen display, operation is fast, intuitive and user-friendly. The new generation MarSurf PS 10 design measures 31 roughness parameters, offers a convenient list of "favorite" functions in the display, and provides laboratory level performance on the shop floor.
"The portable MarSurf PS 10 offers a perfect entry into the world of surface measurement. Weighing in at just a pound, the unit's display adjusts to allow users to measure in all positions – horizontally, vertically or upside down. In addition, the unit can be mounted on a measuring stand to provide a stationary roughness measuring instrument for small workshops."
George Schuetz, Director Precision Gages for Mahr Federal.
The measuring unit is intended for quick roughness testing in and on a machine while in production. It is excellent for use in quality assurance of milled and turned parts, ground and honed workpieces, on large machines, large workpieces, or for use with incoming inspection. The only mobile measuring device on the market with auto cutoff selection, the MarSurf PS 10 ensures proper measurement results even by the non-metrologist.
The range of measuring applications is expanded by the ability to remove the drive unit from the MarSurf PS 10 and operate it separately from the display, providing the user with more flexibility. The drive also incorporates built-in "Vees" to support small diameter parts during the measurement cycle. Optional probes for different measuring tasks allow for the measurement of gears and deep measuring points such as in grooves or bores. The large battery pack recharges in 1.5 hours and enables over 1,200 measurements per charge.
Measuring data from the MarSurf PS 10 can be saved in TXT, X3P, CSV, or PDF formats as finished measuring records with no additional software. A Mahr calibration certificate is included in the scope of delivery, and error-free measurements are made possible by the integrated and removable calibration standard. When combined with Mahr eStick wireless data transmission, data collection becomes seamless with MarCom software.
