New Measurement Technology at MACH, 11-15 April 2016

Spectrum Metrology looks forward to meeting you at the MACH exhibition this April where we will have a range of innovative measurement solutions to show you (stand 4392) …

Surtronic Duo roughness checker Ra Rz

The Taylor Hobson range of workshop surface finish measurement instruments will be at MACH, including the new Surtronic Duo roughness checker which uses familiar smartphone technology for improved performance and ease of use:

The Surtronic Duo roughness checker uses the latest Bluetooth technology for quick, reliable communication between the measurement head and its remote control - operators can place the measurement head on the section to be measured and take measurements from a distance at the press of a button.

Housed in a robust, rubberised moulding, the Surtronic Duo has an intuitive 3-button menu and a crisp 6cm colour LCD screen with graphical display.  The Surtronic Duo uses the latest rechargeable battery technology and incorporates a USB mini port for fast charging.  The unit is then stored in a handy canvas bag ready for use at a moment’s notice.
