Displaying values on a bright LED screen, Pressure Sensing Digital Flowmeters from EXAIR come with everything you need for installation. You can add another layer of protection for equipment with an optional low-pressure alarm.
Tramming in a workpiece or fixture to a machine, measuring lengths and depths, checking flatness, or aligning workpieces and vise? Haimer USA’s 3-D sensors make locating the edge in XYZ as easy as 1-2-3.
maXYmos TL ML from Kistler delivers 100% testing of devices as well as the manufacturing environments where pharma and medtech products are made. Proof of quality is a liability shield and can also speed the process of bringing innovation to market.
A software wizard for NUM’s Flexium+ CNC systems enables total automation of probe measurement on the shop floor. Operators don’t need to know G-code because the software provides visual prompts for 29 calibration, presetting, and/or measurement routines.
Mitutoyo America’s M2 2D processor package is available with a PH-3515 profile projector with 14-inch touchscreen tablet. The horizontal projector is equipped with accurate linear glass scales and performs profile and fiberoptic surface illumination.
Marposs’ OptoFlash Xs30 meets the measuring requirements of extra small components for the precision mechanical devices and medical implants industries. The 2D optical inspection system handles 100 static measurements in 2 seconds.
Marposs’ Meclab.X’s Aeroel technology eliminates measurement drift caused by changes in room temperature. The micrometer system doesn’t require a PC and is easy for inexperienced operators to learn, so it’s ideal for common measurement applications throughout the shop.
Mahr’s Micromar 40EWR digital micrometers address a conundrum manufacturers face every day: how to measure unique objects and surfaces in widely diverse scenarios. Wireless data transmission is available for each of the five models in the series.
Mahr depth gages transmit measurement data wirelessly, simplifying recording and documentation and facilitating networked production. Pocket-sized 30 EWRi travels easily all over the plant floor; 30 EWR-U and 30 EWRi-U universal gages open the door to numerous applications.
Designed for Hexagon’s 7-axis Absolute Arm, the RS-Squared area scanner adds 3D laser scanning to touch probing to measure parts faster than conventional scanners. No reference markers are required, and that’s the silver bullet that keeps overall scan time to a minimum.
The latest software for Heidenhain’s Acu-Rite family of digital readouts(DROs) features at least three enhancements designed to increase productivity and efficiency. One adds Axes Q on the axes’ names list for customers who use their DROs on optical comparators.
Available from Exact Metrology, the Leica RTC360 laser scanner generates a full model of large-scale objects with down-to-the-millimeter accuracy. Built-in Leica Cyclone Field 360 app automatically registers scans in real time, and software integrates the 3D model into the user’s workflow.
GWS Tool Group Announces Acquisition of STF Precision (STF)
The acquisition of STF Precision enhances the GWS product portfolio and capabilities in the area of PCD and CBN solutions and further expands the GWS manufacturing presence into the Carolinas.
Amid Challenges, Majority of Metalformers Predict Little Change in Economic Activity
U.S and Canadian incoming orders expected to remain steady, according to the latest barometer reading from the Precision Metalforming Association.
