Bowers introduces advanced digital indicator

S\\_Cal Factor digital indicator
Bowers Metrology, the UK agent for Swiss measuring instrument manufacturer Sylvac, has announced the launch of Sylvac's advanced S\\_Cal Factor digital indicator.
Based on Sylvac's digital indicator design, it is possible to programme multiplication factors from zero to 99,999 into the new range of gauges.
Thanks to the new instruments' programmable factor, the S\\_Dial Factor indicators can now be used to display various different measuring units, including volume, force and distances.
As the new Sylvac indicators are designed to accept the input of alternative measuring ratios, many common gauging tasks can now be performed.
The shop-floor-proof digital indicators can be used for routines such as gauging the external diameter of cylindrical components held in 'V' blocks.
Alternatively, they can be retrofitted to devices such as countersink gauges, measuring situations where conventional 1:1-ratio indicators would be rendered useless.
The S\\_Dial Factor indicator collection is available with a 12.5mm measuring range for the 233 series and both 12.5mm and 25mm measuring ranges for the 213 series, with a switchable resolution of 0.01mm or 0.001mm.
Features include an inch/metric conversion, a preset facility and an RS232 output.
The 213 series also has a large rotating light-emitting-diode display, which is suitable for when the gauges are being used in a horizontal orientation.
Welding Units (UK) has invested in a Unical universal digital caliper from Bowers Metrology to help ensure the integrity of its output.
Bowers Metrology will be demonstrating a wide range of bore gauges on stand N102 at Southern Manufacturing 2014, including the recently launched Microgauge — a two-point bore gauging system.
Quaife Engineering, a specialist in high-performance transmission technology, is utilising an advanced air-gauging system from Bowers Metrology.
Bowers Metrology’s PC-2200 flexible electronic/air columns are enabling Adwest Engineering — a manufacturer of steering gears — to measure each component accurately and easily.
Newbury-based Acedes Gear Company, which supplies hobs to gear manufacturers in the aerospace industry, has invested in a series of Bowers XT Xtreme digital bore gauges.
