Surtronic Duo and Intra Touch provide wider cost-benefit options for users

AMETEK Taylor Hobson has broadened its comprehensive range of surface measurement testers with the addition of two new products:

  • Surtronic Duo portable surface roughness tester for shop floor and on-site measurement of multiple roughness parameters, and
  • Intra Touch contour and finish measurement system for precision machining and many other applications.

Applications include:

  • Manufacturing Process Control
  • Automotive
  • Shipbuilding
  • Pipelines
  • Sheet Steel
  • Aerospace
  • Turbines
  • Print Rollers
  • Flooring
  • Glass
  • Bonding
  • Quality Control

The Surtronic Duo uses a long-wearing diamond stylus that is drawn across a part with a precision motorized traverse mechanism. Vertical movement of the stylus is detected by a piezo-electric pickup that converts mechanical movement into electrical signals. The signals are digitized and sent to a microprocessor for instant calculation of surface parameters.

Simple one-button operation produces a full set of traceable measurement results including a detailed profile graph. Display and traverse modules can be operated as one unit or separated for difficult access applications; Bluetooth connectivity allows wireless communication between them. The instrument is suitable for incoming and pre-shipment inspections, manufacturing process control and wear monitoring during product use.

Intra Touch provides all important surface finish capabilities, including fundamental roughness and waviness parameters, contour and form error analysis, feature exclusion, zoom tool and full programmability. Its simple user interface assures effective shop floor operation.

The instrument’s 1mm vertical range and 16nm resolution deliver high-accuracy contour and surface finish measurements. Its contour-only 28mm gauge option is ideal for form measurement and its 50mm horizontal traverse accommodates the majority of shop floor applications. With 0.5 um horizontal data spacing, small components and features can be measured more effectively than before. A manual column is available to provide a stable work station for large or tall components.

Wide Application Coverage
With a continuum of capabilities from the Surtronic series to Intra Touch and higher precision instruments, AMETEK Taylor Hobson offers users the capability to meet all surface measurement requirements at appropriate budget levels. In addition to the new Duo and Intra touch, the series includes

  • Surtronic R-Series roundness and form tester for bearing parts
  • Surtronic S-100 portable roughness tester with extensive USB connectivity

Tablet-based Talyprofile software allows uniform reporting of results from all of Taylor Hobson’s surface measurement instruments.

Taylor Hobson is a leading manufacturer of ultra-precision measurement instruments for a wide range of markets, including optics, semiconductors, manufacturing and nanotechnology research. It is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annualized sales of US$4.0 billion.
