A revolutionary measuring system that defies conventional thinking.
The hybrid measuring system “FORMTRACER Avant Series" allows for measurements of both contour and surface roughness features. Equipped with “speed” enabling higher measurement efficiency, “operability” with automation and a wide variety of features, and expandability which offers upgrading to a complex system by incorporating optional detectors, this revolutionary measuring system defies conventional thinking.
Contracer - Contour
Continuous upper/lower direction measurement combined with a measurement adjustable feature*, enables the continuous measurement of upper and lower face contours, including the effective diameter of screw-threads.The selectable measuring force feature* eliminates the need to set the measuring force by exchanging weights or switching orientation. Mounting an arm onto the Z1-axis contour detector via a magnet-type one-touch attachment/detachment system greatly improves the efficiency of contour measurement. *Only when mounting the contour detector C-4500
Surftest - Surface Roughness
Compliant with JIS, ISO, ANSI, VDA, and other industrial surface roughness standards. Rapid movement of the measuring unit, combined with optional accessories to automate leveling of the measuring surface during setup prior to measurement, shortens measurement time and reduces the burden placed on the operator.
A feature-rich lineup covers every purpose.
This single machine can measure contours and surface roughness.
Just by integrating a detector with a base system comprising FTA-S4C300/400 (contour instrument) and FTA-S4S300 (surface roughness tester), it is possible to upgrade a contour instrument or surface tester to a complex system, from a general purpose contour instrument to a high-precision contour system.Three types of surface detector holders can be added for a wider range of surface roughness measurements. Other than the addition of detectors, Mitutoyo provides a choice of 100/200 mm-type drive units, high column instruments, and large-sizes base instruments, as standard.
Conversion between contour and surface roughness measurement happens within seconds by simply replacing the mounted detector, without shutting down software or switching off the controller.
