Robust and accurate viscosity measurement under harsh process conditions is a challenging task that Anton Paar says is made easy by its fluid dynamic inline viscometer, the L-Vis 510.
Roemheld | Fri, 28 Nov 2014
Roemheld has launched an electronic pressure sensor that offers stationary and mobile measurement of rotating or hard-to-reach sections of hydraulic clamping fixtures. Said to be ideal for applications where wired connections are impractical or too expensive, the sensor uses radio transmission with a free-field range of up to 300m.
Flir Systems — Thermography | Fri, 28 Nov 2014
FLIR has made enhancements to its E8 thermal-imaging camera, the latest of which is manual level and span thermal tuning that gives the user flexible control over the brightness and contrast of the target image. This makes it easier to see more subtle temperature differences and define detail.

Sherborne Sensors | Wed, 26 Nov 2014
In some applications, the distance between a load cell or force transducer and the measuring instrument may be considerable, possibly hundreds of metres. The voltage drop along the connecting cable of a four-wire connection system and its associated temperature coefficient of resistance may contribute significantly to the overall system error. This additional error can be eliminated by the use of the six-wire connection technique where the voltage is sensed locally to the load cell ...
Renishaw | Wed, 26 Nov 2014
ANT Industries has cut inspection times on complex parts by up to 83 per cent using Renishaw’s REVO five-axis measuring system fitted to a Metris co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM).
