Product News: Enhanced MarCal Digital Caliper Line from Mahr Federal

Award-winning ergonomic design includes thumb support, large display, data output function.

Published: Wednesday, June 23, 2010 - 08:50

Mahr 16EWR Caliper(Mahr Federal: Providence, RI) -- Mahr Federal will be featuring a new generation of its popular line of MarCal digital calipers at IMTS, to take place Sept. 13–18, at McCormick Place, in Chicago.

Included in the line are a number of innovations, such as lapped guideways, a new reference system that retains the zero position setting, and an increased number of product options and accessories. MarCal digital calipers are available with protection against dust and immersion to class IP67, provide increased battery life, offer a range of data output options, and are available in a wide range of sizes, and blade and anvil configurations. The design recently won a German award for excellence in innovation and quality. Mahr Federal will occupy booth No. E-5048.

The new reference system available on MarCal R-designated digital calipers is designed to be a significant timesaver for operators. Unlike older models, which require the zero position to be reset whenever the caliper is switched on, the MarCal Reference System retains the zero setting so that the unit is ready to measure whenever it is turned on or the jaws are moved.

A convenient reference lock protects the setting from operator error. The new reference system is also much more energy efficient, providing up to 50-percent longer battery life.

Included in Mahr Federal’s display at IMTS booth No. E-5048 are the following product options and accessories.

A new option package for MarForm MMQ 200 Formtester

The new option package provides the measurement of surface finish parameters according to accepted ISO, ASME, and JIS standards. With the combined hardware/software MMQ 200 Surface Finish option, operators will benefit from reduced setup and measurement cycle time, and reduced cost, by needing only a single piece of equipment for form and surface measurements.

The new MarSurf UD 120

The MarSurf UD 120 can generate surface and contour measurements in a single pass. Designed for economy, the system provides high accuracy throughout a large measuring range in nanometer resolutions. The MarSurf UD 120 includes automated motorized operation and joy-stick control, along with a patented magnetic probe mounting feature that not only prevents probe damage, but allows probe changes in seconds and without any additional tools.

The new Digimar 816 CL Height Gauge

The Digimar 816 CL provides highly accurate measurements without complicated procedures. Robust design and user-friendly operation combine with advanced features and functionality to improve dimensional measurement on the shop floor or in the lab.

The Precimar Linear 100

The Precimar Linear 100 is a universal, user-friendly length measuring instrument for rapid, precise internal and external measurements up to 100 mm (4 in.) directly in the manufacturing environment. The unit includes the new MarCheck Display which makes it easy to transfer measured data to PCs.

A new 800 EW Digital Test Indicator

The 800 EW is shockproof, anti-magnetic, protected against coolants and lubricants to IP65, offers data output via USB or OPTO or RS-232C, and has a battery life of up to two years.

A full range of other Mahr Federal hand-held gauges and other dimensional metrology products will also be on display.
