Bowers Metrology has launched the Sylvac Hi_Cal XZ height gauge range, which is suited for a range of shop-floor measuring tasks.

By the use of a dual-probing arrangement, Hi_Cal XZ height gauges are able to perform the accurate, simultaneous measurement and display of both X and Y axis results.

Available in two sizes, with maximum height measuring capacities of 135 and 285mm, the Sylvac height gauges have an independent X axis, giving them the capability of measuring extremely large internal and external diameters.

By locating large parts such as aero engine casings and pump components on an inspection table in a horizontal plane by use of the Hi_Cal XZ’s integrated sliding rail and X axis probe, extremely large ODs and IDs can be accurately measured.

The limiting factor relating to the size of diameter capable of being measured is an inspection table’s dimensions.

The Hi_Cal XZ’s precise, large-diameter gauging feature negates the need for beam gauges and large-diameter micrometers.

The robust yet portable Sylvac height gauges occupy a relatively small footprint.

In addition to large-diameter measurement, the multi-function Sylvac instruments can undertake a multitude of gauging tasks, including metric/inch conversions, step heights, min/max/delta routines and centre-line distancs calculations.

With Z and X axis accuracy specifications of 3 and 2um respectively, the Sylvac height gauges present their measured result on an easy-to-read high-definition LED display.
