See the new Talyvel 6 wireless electronic level at Mach and Control
Taylor Hobson unveils the latest addition to its line of industry-leading Talyvel electronic levels this year at Mach, Birmingham (stand 5956) and Control, Stuttgart (stand 1302). The newly designed Talyvel 6 interfaces directly to a touch screen computer and can be used in wireless mode for complete flexibility.
Used for measuring straightness, flatness or absolute level, Talyvel 6 combines exceptional accuracy, stability and repeatability. It is simple to calibrate and operate with a fast measurement response time.
Talyvel incorporates a pendulum-type transducer that provides exceptional measurement stability and has an unmatched accuracy of 0.2arc second over the center measuring region .
In civil engineering, the Talyvel 6 can remotely monitor the tilt of structures or check for foundation settlement. It also can be used to check the level and straightness of rails and platforms. The Talyvel 6 has applications in machine tools for checking slideways for straightness and twist, columns for squareness and surface plates for flatness. It also can measure camber on rolls.
Among its most common uses is to check the flatness of granite and cast-iron tables. Aboard ships, it can be used to measure the twist of marine engine bed plates and the parallelism of crankpins, to main bearings or marine crankshafts.
