Measurement & Inspection
Filter by Process Zone:
Renishaw’s multisensor REVO 5-axis measurement system provides highly accurate scanning, non-contact inspection and surface finish analysis at ultra-high speeds on one coordinate measuring machine (CMM).
The LEXT OLS5100 laser microscope from Olympus guarantees measurement accuracy that simplify experiment workflows. The software’s several smart features minimize error with push-button scanning and analysis.
Optical Gauging Products’ multisensor TeleStar Plus laser measures a wide range of materials and surface textures with extremely high accuracy. Its through-the-lens (TTL) design eliminates offset between the optical and laser sensors.
OmniSurf3D from Digital Metrology Solutions helps users understand and communicate about surface texture without requiring a great deal of mathematical interpretation or metrology knowledge. The software provides the ability to interact with data from virtually any surface measurement instrument.
Automated Precision’s portable vProbe performs CMM-style measurements on the shop floor and is more versatile than a portable-arm coordinate measuring machine (CMM).
Marposs’ Merlin Plus isn’t just for Merlin hardware anymore – the industrial production analysis and control is available for PCs running Windows 7 or 10. Equipped for 250 different measurements, it also comes with a free add-on to create graphical pages.
Many shops hesitate to incorporate abrasive finishing tools in CNC machines for fear of clogging coolant lines and damaging slides and bearings. However, finishing tools generate very little grit.
Buehler’s Wilson RH2150 is easy to program and offers an intuitive software interface with Buehler’s DiaMet hardness testing software. Use the external footswitch with the actuator-mounted clamping device to clamp and activate either manual or automatic start, as well as to release manually or automatically after test.
When used with any instrument in Zetec’s Topaz family, the ElbowFlex provides high-resolution C-scan images of corrosion and other damage. It saves significant inspection time compared to conventional ultrasonic testing (UT) and grid systems.
Volume Graphics integrates Q-DAS’ qs-STAT statistics software with computed tomography (CT) scan data analysis to provide the basis for a deep assessment and continuous improvement of industrial production processes.
The smallest and lightest handheld XRF analyzer available, Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Niton XL5 Plus enables manufacturing professionals to make informed decisions that impact workplace safety while improving productivity and mitigating user fatigue.
Starrett’s AVR-FOV 0.14X has a 0.14 magnification lens. When combined with “superimage” technology that stitches images together and a touch probe, operators on the shop floor see more of each part, no matter how complex, they inspect.
New Sunrise Warranty at Trilogy Machinery
Sunrise Ironworkers’ U.S. distributor now warranties ironworkers and punching machine parts to three years and one year on labor.
Backlog of Orders Index Grows To All-Time High
The manufacturing economy continued its recovery in March, according to Institute for Supply Management’s March 2021 ‘Manufacturing ISM Report On Business.’ Backlogs are growing, as are raw materials inventories and exports and imports.
Recovery Takes Hold: February U.S. Manufacturing Technology Orders Increase Almost 18% Over January
Totaling $377.6 million, February’s latest orders represent a 32.2% increase year over year, according to AMT’s report. Oil and gas surprised with an uptick, and medical equipment’s rise likely resulted from hospitals catching up on elective procedures.
