Mahr Federal to Highlight MarShaftâ„¢ Scope 250 plus

Mahr Federal will feature the MarShaft™ SCOPE 250 plus, the new MarShaft Scope 600 plus 3D, and the MarGear GMX 400 at IMTS 2016, September 12-17, 2016, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, Booth #E-5614. Also on display will be several custom gaging solutions developed by the MarSolutions Engineered Metrology Team.


Mahr Federal’s MarShaft™ SCOPE 250 plus flexible optical system for shop floor measurement is competitively priced and designed to provide fast, accurate, fully automatic measurement of smaller shafts and turned parts directly on the shop floor. It features a highly accurate matrix camera with four million pixels, and measures parts up to 250 mm in length and 40 mm in diameter. Its MPE (Maximum Permissible Error) of less than 1.5 microns + L/40 when measuring diameter and 3 microns + L/125 when measuring length is significantly more accurate than other systems using line cameras.


The new MarShaft™ SCOPE 600 plus 3D, introduced at this year’s Control Show, will also make its debut appearance at IMTS 2016. Combining optical and touch sensors in the same unit, the MarShaft SCOPE 600 plus provides 3D functionality and complete inspection of the workpiece in a single measurement. In a matter of seconds, the matrix camera optically measures characteristics such as diameter, length, radius, shape, location characteristics, etc., while a new 2D sensor detects features that are not optically measurable, such as cam lift on concave cam profiles and reference (clocking) features such as holes or keyways.


The MarGear GMX 400 is a Class 1 Universal Gear Tester that provides fast, accurate analysis for a wide range of gear and gear tool applications on gears with ODs up to 400 mm (15.75 in). Part of the Mahr Federal GMX Series, the GMX 400 incorporates a 4-axis Power PC controller with automatic tailstock and a high-accuracy 3D scanning probe head. The GMX 400 provides an excellent solution for both universal and specialized gear manufacturing processes.


The GMX Series is designed to provide maximum precision and flexibility of gear and form measurement in a single system. Equipped for standalone shop floor or gear lab applications, the GMX 400 can also be fully networked for fast and efficient transfer of measuring results and machine corrections. The GMX Series provides Class 1 accuracy in accordance with VDI/VDE 2612/2613 Group 1.


Also at Booth #E-5614, Mahr Federal will be exhibiting a wide range of its MarSolutions Engineered Metrology Team capabilities. Custom gage stations will reflect the three levels of design solutions available from Mahr Federal, including modified standard product gages, gages configured from Standard Elements, and gages custom built for the application. Also, reflecting industry’s drive to automation, MarSolutions examples will demonstrate manually operated gages, semi-automatic solutions, and fully automated robotically loaded gaging stations — thus providing the full range of custom design solutions from the MarSolutions Team.
