Cylindricity machine

Mahr Federal has released a new version of its MMQ 200 Formtester Cylindricity Machine with an automated T7W probing system. The T7W is a ±360º motorized bidirectional probe intended to reduce operator involvement and to improve measurement capability.

The MMQ 200’s EasyForm 3 software guides users through measurement setup and operation. As many as 32 measuring routines can be saved for automatic operation.

Measurement results are immediately displayed on the screen, including 3D representation with color or grid lines providing an interactive graphic preview. Results can be printed, saved in file formats such as PDF or exported for analysis in other software packages.

The MMQ 200 is ideal for machine operators on the production floor, where timely measurements can minimize scrap, save time and reduce production costs.

Precision pressure controller

The DH Instruments Division of Fluke has added to its PPC4 precision pressure controller/calibrator product line. The PPC4 is a high-performance pressure calibrator for testing pneumatic pressure instruments.

The maximum pressure range of the PPC4 has increased to cover the absolute pressure range of 0.15 psi to 2,000 psi and gauge pressure equivalent, including very low differential pressures. The dynamic control extends the minimum controlled pressure down to 1 kPa.

PPC4 enables users to select the user interface that best fits their application and budget. Benchtop users can select the advanced graphic color display with point-and-click navigation to streamline pressure calibration and testing tasks. The advanced graphical user interface supports 11 different languages.

Axis software from Top Kaizen monitors key performance indicator (KPI) trends and predicts future performance in engineering construction businesses, project-based industries or manufacturing and business processes.

For each KPI, Axis breaks down the information into an individual control chart, a compliance chart, Sigma level and a Cpk index. Finally, an overall performance index is integrated into a radar chart.

Axis also allows users to export data and graphs into different applications such as MS Excel, MS Word, MS PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat.

Thread Lubricant

CRC’s Thread Lubricant is a lithium-based, general purpose lubricant that prevents seizing and galling caused by high temperatures, heavy loads, vibration and corrosion. It can be used on aluminum conduit, bolts, bushings, fittings, flanges, nuts, pipes, plugs and screws. Its fine particle sizing makes it an ideal choice for closely fitted parts that need lubrication.

CRC Thread Lubricant will not compromise the integrity of soft metals. This formula has a smooth texture, low odor and is non-flammable. It is safe for use on ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It is available in an 8 oz. brush-top bottle.
