Modular Roughness Measuring System

The W55 roughness measurement system from Detroit Precision Hommel is designed to operate within a production line, acquiring and archiving measured values of roughness, profile and waviness, as well as tolerances for any parameter, or to continuously monitor production processes and to upload data to the user's statistics network. The system is capable of storing as many as 30 different workpiece programs for different part numbers or different features on the same part. Each work piece program can be identified by text or digital photo on the large 10" display.

The W55 roughness measurement system from Detroit Precision Hommel is designed to operate within a production line, acquiring and archiving measured values of roughness, profile and waviness, as well as tolerances for any parameter, or to continuously monitor production processes and to upload data to the user's statistics network.

The system is capable of storing as many as 30 different workpiece programs for different part numbers or different features on the same part. Each work piece program can be identified by text or digital photo on the large 10" display. Within each work piece program, data can be tagged to identify operation number, machine number, operator and more.

Using a LAN interface, the W55 can acquire and save measured roughness data centrally and transfer then to a statistics server. The LAN interface also allows the use of central printers. Standard printers, USB memory sticks and other standard peripheral devices can be used via the built-in USB interfaces. These interfaces make it simple to integrate the roughness measurement system into a production line. The USB ports or LAN interface can be used to take advantage of the built-in QS-Stat export function.
