Experience the speed, efficiency and precision of advanced contour and surface roughness measurement in one machine, with the new FORMTRACER Avant Series hybrid measuring system.
A range of models covers every purpose
FORMTRACER Avant Series allows a contour instrument or surface roughness tester to be upgraded from a general-purpose instrument to a high-precision contour instrument. Three types of surface roughness detector holders can be added for a wider range of measurements.
Contour Instruments FTA-S4C3000/4000
Surface Roughness Tester FTA-S4S3000
Hybrid measuring system for both contour and surface roughness FTA-S4D4000
200mm drive unit available in large base and high column models FTA-L8S3000 and FTA-H8S3000
Conversion between contour and surface roughness measurement happens within seconds by simply replacing the mounted detector, without shutting down software or switching off the controller.
High-Speed efficiency drastically reduces set-up time
The stroke (retraction) speed is improved by approx. three times compared to conventional models, significantly improving measuring efficiency.
Industry-leading positioning distance from the start of measurement to the start of data acquisition is reduced to the absolute minimum of 0.05 mm.
Versatile features for superior operability
|Efficiently measure inclined surfaces within a range of ±45° without added fixtures or positional adjustments.|
|Arc Scale||Built-in precision arc scale allows the circular trajectory of the stylus tip to be read directly, eliminating the need for an arc direct conversion mechanism.|
|Cable-Less||All cables are housed inside the main unit to eliminate any risk of abrasion or snagging and guarantee precision measurement and rapid movement.|
|Sensor Exchange||Replace contour or surface detector without turning off the controller power, reducing measuring time by approx. 30 seconds.|
|Upper/Lower Surface Continuous Measurement||Double-sided conical stylus continuously measures upper/lower surfaces, facilitating difficult processes such as diameter measurements of an internal screw thread.|
|Provides maximum ease of use while new function keys support fast creation of measurement part programs for maximum productivity.|
|Stylus Drop Detection||Immediately stops operation if the stylus suddenly drops, preventing damage to the stylus without relying on a conventional mechanical stop.|
FORMTRACER Avant Series comes with feature-packed software to streamline efficiency, improve quality and prevent defective products.
Provides total support for controlling the measuring system, system roughness analysis, contour analysis, contour tolerancing and inspection report creation.
Simple and efficient application software for 2D/3D analysis. Data for analysis is imported from the Surface Roughness Measuring System.
Networks each measurement system and aggregates the measurement data in a server.
