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.
At Interplas 2014, Bowers UK and Baty International will demonstrate a range of precision measuring solutions including Bowers’ Microgauge two-point bore gauging system, which is designed for the accurate measurement of bores from 1.0–6.0mm and features a new integral digital readout.
Bowers Metrology has introduced the advanced Nexus 3200 Brinell hardness tester, which is able to withstand extremely harsh industrial environments and is suitable for use on flat and cylindrical work pieces such as castings and forgings.
