The MarShaft Scope Plus from Mahr Federal is a high-precision, fully automatic optical measuring system for dimensional testing of turned workpieces that is said to be twice as accurate as its previous version. The 2+L/ 125-micron error limit for measuring length and diameter enables high-precision measurements on turned workpieces that typically could not be measured on optical systems, the company says.

The system also includes a new MarWin-based controller and system architecture for increased capability. The EasyShaft operating software with touchscreen facilitates easy and quick measurements with selectable feature icons, and high-level script programming available through the optional ProfessionalShaft software enables virtually unlimited customization. Intelligent multi-touch gestures are built into the touchscreen, including “pinch to zoom” and the ability to move the camera view around the machine with a flicking gesture across the screen.
