Mahr Federal will be featuring the addition of an economical and powerful new skidless surface evaluation system to its MarSurf line of mobile surface metrology systems at MD&M West, February 14-16, 2012, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California. Mahr Federal will occupy booth #3069. The new MarSurf M 400 features proprietary motorized probe height adjustment that quickly and automatically zeros the probe in seconds and can cut measurement time in half. The M 400 also features a magnetic, breakaway probe mounting system that protects sensitive probes from accidental damage and facilitates fast probe changes. The MarSurf M 400 measures all common international parameters, and features Bluetooth connectivity between the measuring system and the evaluation unit with integrated thermal printer.
Skidless tracing of surface characteristics allows the capture of primary, waviness, and roughness profiles for the evaluation of more complex parameters. The new MarSurf M 400 offers this capability in a very economical, entry-level system, and is the only one to include proprietary auto-probe zeroing, which can dramatically increase the ease and speed of measurement. The magnetic probe mounting system also protects delicate probes and allows probe arms to be rapidly changed with just a touch.
Operation of the M 400 is fast and easy. The measuring unit can be used alone in different orientations, in combination with various accessories, or mounted on a measuring stand. A large color display on the evaluation unit provides clear, concise results and intuitive operator guidance. The unit is compatible with all appropriate DIN, ISO, JIS, ASME and MOTIF standards for the measure of most common surface finish parameters from the P, W, and R profiles.
The MarSurf M 400 comes in its own carrying case and includes the M 400 Evaluation Unit with integrated thermal printer, and Bluetooth connectivity with the newly designed SD 26 Drive Unit with the breakaway BFW 250 probe system and standard probe arm. Battery or AC adapter operation extends flexibility, and two USB cables allow connection to a PC or optional use with the drive unit.
