The surface finish gage from Mahr Federal is designed to index and measure multiple small parts, such as gears, fuel injector components or inner and outer bearing components. Using a lazy susan type staging table with customized tooling to accommodate as many as eight measuring stations, the gage incorporates a Perthometer M1 or M2 surface measuring instrument, and supports most common DIN, ISO, ASME and SEP profile parameters, including Ra, Rz, Rmax and RPc.

The part tooling holds the parts either on their IDs at two different measurement depths or on their end faces so you can measure the front face. The tooling is designed at a known height so that the measurment altitude is always the same. In operation, the part is placed on the gage, the table is rotated to index to the centerline of the gage head, then the handle is rotated to position the probe for measuring.

The compact bench-type gage is about 18" long × 12" deep and fully self contained. The drive unit and measurement head are enclosed and completely protected from both the environment and mechanical damage. The highly sensitive diamond stylus probe is housed in a metal shroud and engaged by means of a probe retraction mechanism that ensures that the probe only contacts the part when it is in the proper position and ready to measure. This automatic system is also designed for ease of use.
