Metrology-Focused Digital Readout

The new metrology-focused digital readout by ACU-RITE was introduced in the HEIDENHAIN booth at the IMTS show in Chicago. The new ACU-RITE-brand DRO203Q known as “the Q” utilizes the power of the established ACU-RITE DRO203 hardware to integrate geometric metrology functions from the past iconic QUADRA-CHEK series.

Users of optical comparators and measuring microscopes and more will find this of particular interest as it meets the need for basic 2D metrology functions. The Q functions as an entry-level readout, providing the user with geometric feature construction, basic part view detail and data output via USB-C connection. This enables users to quickly gather the needed points, construct desired features, and export them easily over a modern interface.

The ACU-RITE DRO203Q is plug-and-play, walking the user through initial set up parameters and display options on first power-up.
