MMS AUGUST 2018 278 IMTS 2018 Inspection and Measuring Contour Drive System Speeds Throughput, Improves Accuracy Mahr Inc.'s MarSurf contour drive (CD) is the first in a series of surface finish and contour measurement systems. It has been designed for speed, flexibility and precision, said to improve the manufacturing quality of a broader range of workpieces with faster throughput and higher accuracy. The system enables measurement of the shape of a surface and provides dimensional information such as angles, depths, distances and radii. The product's design is said to increase the speed of the moving axes and reduce the cycle time of the measurement process. The drive units move the contour probe with position- ing speeds as fast as 200 mm/s.
