Spectrum Metrology is inviting interested parties to see a range of measurement instruments and discuss their metrology requirements in a relaxed atmosphere at this unique venue. A number of new products and technologies will be available, including:

The Surtronic S-Series portable roughness checker from Taylor Hobson. This latest model in the well-known Surtronic range makes use of smart phone technology and features a rugged touchscreen, long-life batteries, and USB connectivity. The wide measurement range and large choice of surface roughness parameters make the Surtronic S100 robust enough for the shop floor and flexible enough for any inspection room.

Video-CAD Rapid for high-speed geometry measurement. The VideoCAD Rapid touchscreen software and fixture-free work stage allows detailed noncontact measurements in seconds. DXF files can also be imported for comparison. The VideoCAD is suitable for a range of materials and complex geometries, and the speed of measurement has to be seen to be believed. Spectrum Metrology will be pleased to discuss your requirements or measure any sample components you may wish to bring to the show.

A full range of metrology equipment will be at the open day for measurement of roundness, form, surface finish, and dimensions. A range of FARO portable CMMs will be available, including the latest FARO Gage, with Bluetooth cable-free operation for exceptional portability.
