Internal, External Comparator Gage Assesses Measurements
The Checkmatic from Fowler is an internal and external comparator gage designed to provide measurements for internal and external diameters, center axis distances, thread rolls and internal and exterior grooves.
It determines bearing face distance, concentricity, hole position and center distance, internal recess diameters, internal and external splines, and slot and undercut depth.
The Checkmatic also incorporates inch-metric conversion, preset and preset recall, zero settings, memory hold and tolerance input.

Setnag's JC48V Analyzer Measures Oxygen Levels
Setnag's JC48V oxygen trace analyzer is designed for industrial gas producers and heat treatment.
It measures ppm oxygen levels as low as 25% using the MicroPoas oxygen microgage, which comes with its own built-in metallic reference point.
The gage makes measurements more accurate because they are independent from outside ambient conditions. No reference gas is required, and the JC48V comes built into a 19-in. rack for integration into existing cabinets.

Bar Code Reader Has Reading Efficiency Display
Keyence's BL-600 Series barcode reader.
Keyence says its BL-600 Series is the industry's first bar code reader to provide a preventive maintenance information (PMI) feature. The PMI monitors and reports reading performance during operation, making it possible to detect potential reading error problems.
Using Keyence's patented polygon mirror scanning technology, the BL-600 offers an increased reading area and incident reading angle.
The bar code reader can read bars as thin as 0.125 mm and operates at distances up to 330 mm (12.9 in.). It weighs 115 g and operates at 500 scans/sec.

Formtracer Generates Surface Roughness Analysis
The Formtracer CS Series of measuring systems from Mitutoyo can determine contour and surface roughness analysis from a single measurement of the work piece. Two models of the system are available: the CS-3000 and CS-5000.
The CS-3000 is designed for smaller work pieces requiring mid-level accuracy. It has a maximum measuring range of 10 mm and a maximum resolution of 0.8 nanometers.
The CS-5000 provides laboratory level accuracy employing a laser holoscale that utilizes interference of diffracted light to achieve nanometer resolution.

Calculates Real-Life Maintenance Scenarios
Relax Reliability Software Suite Version 7.6 from Relax Software is a collection of analysis tools for evaluating and improving product reliability.
It includes a system optimization and simulation (OpSim) module for modeling real-life maintenance scenarios.
Based on parameters including transportation times, storage and transportation costs, and replenishment levels for spares, Relax OpSim can calculate the optimal number of on-site and off-site spares for each system component.
From the provided component data, it determines whether to use analytical analysis or simulation.
