THE TSK Handysurf, available from QC Systems , is a small but powerful instrument for shop floor use in measurement of surface texture (roughness) to international standards, and includes waviness analysis as standard.
A variety of accessories is available to ensure this instrument can be used for analysis on odd shaped parts, and special probes can also provide added versatility (skidless operation) or just snap out the probe drive, plug in an extension cable and use it as a hand held unit on the machining centre or grinder.
The unit weighs only 600 grams, and replacement probes are readily available.
Parameters include: Ra, Rq, Ry, Rp, Rz, Rt, Sm, Pc, tp, Rk, Rpk, Rvk, Mr1, Mr2, VO, K and CNOMO R, Rx, AR, W, Wx, AW, Wte plus profile curve, roughness curve, DIN4776 special curve, roughness motif curve, waviness motif curve and envelope waviness curve.
* Furnishes the Auto Intelligence (AI) function to ensure easy operation. The measuring range, evaluation length, cutoff value, and recording magnification are automatically set according to the measuring conditions.
* Contains the measurement parameters complying with the current ISO, JIS, ASME, and CNOMO standards. It can undertake data processing in seven languages to support worldwide applications.
* Provides a serial port as standard to enable direct transmission of measuring conditions, parameter values, and profile curve data to the personal computer. Further, a compact printer and high speed printer are selectable to print out the data.
* Can measure slant, vertical, and overhead surfaces as well as horizontal surface at any attitude.
Other instruments available in the TSK range include Surface Texture, Contour, Roundness and Air Gauging systems, from handheld units such as the Handysurf to fully CNC-controlled systems.
