Talyrond 500H

Share this on social media:

A precision surface measurement tool featuring an industry-leading high-speed column drive, precision positioning and 4mm roundness and contour gauge has been introduced by Taylor Hobson, a unit of AMETEK. The new Talyrond 500H measures roundness, profile and surface finish on a single platform with high accuracy due to an extremely low noise floor.

It is ideally suited for high-accuracy measuring applications including precision bearings, fuel injectors, crankshafts and turbocharger parts. Numerous specialized accessories allow the instrument to accommodate the industry’s most demanding applications.

Applications include: automotive & parts; aerospace; bearings; machine tools; metalworking; medical; optics; agricultural machinery; and marine.

It accurately duplicates a machine tool’s movements and exactly reproduces a work piece shape. This allows the Talyrond 500H to provide users with rapid feedback for efficient quality assurance.

A low-noise metrology frame, accurate axis alignment and a patented data collection method provide it with unmatched straightness and roundness measurement capabilities. A high-resolution gauge measures linear or circumferential surface roughness. A frictionless air-bearing spindle and precision column measure roundness, cylindricity and straightness. A patented calibration technique performs radius, angle, height, length and distance measurements.

Simplified teach and learn programming techniques, comprehensive user prompts and on-screen instructions combine for easy, error-free operation. It performs calibration, center and level functions along with measuring routines automatically.
