Roughness-Measurement System

Nov. 9, 2006
The W55 Roughness Measurement System is intended to work on a production line, measuring and archiving roughness, profile, and waviness, as well as part dimensions.

The device can also continuously monitor production processes and upload data to a user's statistics network. The W55 stores up to 30 different workpiece programs for different part numbers or different features on the same part. The system includes an oil and moisture-resistant keyboard.
