MarSurf XR 1 Roughness measuring station
MarSurf XR 1.  The ideal instrument for a low-cost introduction to user-friendly surface metrology.
The PC based instrument delivers all common surface parameters and profiles in accordance with international standards ( both in the measuring room and in production). MarSurf XR 1 from Mahr stands for innovative roughness evaluation software.
  • Over 80 surface parameters for R , P and W profiles according to current ISO/JIS or MOTIF standards (ISO 12085)
  • Bandpass filter Ls in accordance with current standard; Ls can also be switched off or varied as required.
  • Comprehensive measuring records
  • Internal programm assistance (Teach in methods) for the rapid creation of Quick&Easy measuring programs
  • Automatic functions for choosing cut-off and traversing length in accordance with international standards
  • Support for various calibration methods (static and dynamic) by specifying the Ra or Rz parameter
  • Adjustable maintenance and calibration intervals
  • Multiple measuring station configurations for custom applications
  • Range of options provide system flexibility
  • Various user levels protect the device against misuse and prevent unauthorized use
