Taylor Hobson has released a single-platform metrology instrument that performs three core measurements. The Talyrond 500 series offers a solution for accurate roundness, contour and surface measurements that previously required three separate instruments. Measurement resolution is 0.3 nm. The metrology instruments use rotary, vertical and horizontal measuring data to duplicate a machine tool's movement to exactly reproduce the workpiece shape. This ultrahigh-precision simulation of a cutting tool path allows for accurate control of a manufacturing process. The instruments are suited for measuring applications including precision bearings, fuel injectors, crankshafts and turbocharger parts. Standard and specialized accessories accommodate various applications. Features include a high-resolution gauge and low axis noise for linear or circumferential surface roughness measurement.
