Trade in your old Surface instrument and receive at least 15% discount on the new Form Talysurf i-Series

(*Valid until the end of September 2014)

A high range high resolution system for contour and surface finish measurement

Ideally suited for automotive, bearings, gears and many other applications

Surface and Contour in One
The Form Talysurf i-Series is a high accuracy instrument range capable of simultaneous surface finish and contour measurement. The system's low noise axes and high resolution gauge ensures measurement integrity with choice of gauge ranges providing versatility for a variety of applications.

Reproducible measurement results
Decades of experience, ultra precision machining expertise and FEA optimized design combine to provide low noise and near flawless mechanical execution of the measuring axes. Further enhancement via the use of traceable standards and exclusive algorithms effectively eliminates instrument influence from the measurement results.

Form Talysurf i-Series features

Unparalleled measurement capability
Surface finish, contour and 3D

Surface detail
High resolution gauges with low noise enables roughness, waviness and form in one measurement.

Our patented calibration technique enables measurement of radii, angle, height, length, distance and more.

Using an optional motorized Y-stage and Talymap, transform your conventional 2D measurement in to a 3D analysis tool.

Applications include:

  • Cylinder heads - Valve surface finish - Valve angle
  • Roller bearings - Surface finish - Form error and DXF comparison
  • Gears - Surface finish - Root radius and form deviation
  • Crankshafts - Surface finish - Fillet radi and DXF comparison
  • Ball screw - Pitch, angle, form and Linear dimensions

Tailored to suit your application
From screw threads to crankshafts or engine block to valve guides select the configuration that suits your requirements.
