New ACU-RITE Metrology DRO Introduced by HEIDENHAIN

Meet ‘The Q’

Published: Thursday, September 8, 2022 - 12:00

(HEIDENHAIN: Schaumburg, IL) -- The new metrology-focused digital readout by ACU-RITE will be introduced in the HEIDENHAIN booth next month at the IMTS show in Chicago (September 12-17). The new ACU-RITE-brand DRO203Q known as “The Q” utilizes the power of the established ACU-RITE DRO203 hardware to integrate geometric metrology functions from the earlier QUADRA-CHEK series.

Users of optical comparators and measuring microscopes will find this of particular interest because it meets the need for basic 2D metrology functions. The Q functions as an entry-level readout, providing the user with geometric feature construction, basic part view detail, and data output via USB-C connection. This enables users to quickly gather the needed points, construct desired features, and export them easily over a modern interface.

The ACU-RITE DRO203Q is plug-and-play, walking the user through initial setup parameters and display options on first power-up.
