A Metrology Open Day hosted by Spectrum Metrology, 26th June 2019

Spectrum Metrology will be hosting a Metrology Open Day at the National Space Centre Leicester this June in conjunction with Taylor Hobson and FARO (Wednesday 26th June, 10am-4pm).

Spectrum Metrology is inviting interested parties to see a range of measurement instruments and discuss their metrology requirements in a relaxed atmosphere at this unique venue.  A number of metrology products and technologies will be available including:

The Surtronic S-Series portable roughness checker from Taylor Hobson.  This latest model in the well-known Surtronic  range makes use of the latest smartphone technology with ruggedised touch screen, long life batteries and USB connectivity.  The wide measurement range and large choice of surface roughness parameters make the Surtronic S100 robust enough for the shop floor and flexible enough for any inspection room.

WM1 Video Microscope for precision geometry measurements.  The WM1 combines a high resolution CCD camera with top light illumination and a precision measurement stage for the best possible clarity of image.  The system has precise edge detection in transmitted or incident light conditions thanks to intelligent image analysis algorithms.  Configured to meet individual requirements, the CNC model can also be extended into a multi-sensor device with the addition of a tactile probe.  A range of image field sizes are available or manual/motorised zoom can be selected.  Spectrum Metrology will be pleased to discuss your requirements or measure any sample components you may wish to bring to the show.

A full range of metrology equipment will be at the open day for measurement of roundness, form, surface finish and dimensions.  A range of FARO metrology systems will also be available with specialists available from Taylor Hobson, FARO and Spectrum to discuss any metrology issues.

Attendance of the Open Day includes free entry to the Space Centre which comprises six differently themed galleries (visit
