The L. S. Starrett Co.’s SR160 surface roughness tester performs the complex analysis required to meet or exceed customers’ specifications. The unit is shock tested and capable of withstanding the demands of a shop environment, the company says. 

The tester splits into a display/control unit and traverse unit via a slide and lock mechanism. It uses Bluetooth communication between the traverse and display/control unit. The screen provides a detailed graph of the measurement area. The screen can be electronically oriented in four ways for ease of viewing. 

Applications for the SR160 include incoming inspections, final inspection before shipment, process control on the production line and checking large components or structures.

The benefits offered include reduction in part scrappage; monitoring of tool wear; ensured traceability; measurement without the need for expensive riser blocks, stand or fixtures; usability on flat or curved surfaces; and upside-down measurement.
