Maximizing cost savings and improving product quality are two of the most critical objectives for machining operations. An effective way to achieve these goals is real-time monitoring of production process quality. The Marposs WRSP60 scanning probe measures the profile and surface of newly worked parts quickly and accurately. The tool can automatically define critical measurements like TIR, roundness, and concentricity for rounded parts with a remarkable repeatability of 0.4 microns. Equipped with radio data transmission, the WRSP60 integrates perfectly in lathes and machining centers.

  • centers


    Cone-shaped pins that support a workpiece by one or two ends during machining. The centers fit into holes drilled in the workpiece ends. Centers that turn with the workpiece are called “live” centers; those that do not are called “dead” centers.

  • total indicator runout ( TIR)

    total indicator runout ( TIR)

    Combined variations of all dimensions of a workpiece, measured with an indicator, determined by rotating the part 360°.
