Mahr Expands Ultraprecise Multi-Sensor Form Measurement Range

One machine – two ultraprecise concepts: Mahr now offers its well-proven MFU universal form measuring system in two versions for different applications. The first, MarOpto MFU 200-3D, measures optical components automatically, quickly and near production in 2D and 3D. The second machine, MarForm MFU 200, inspects the form and position of rotationally symmetrical workpieces with tolerances of less than 1/1000 of a millimeter* with high precision.

For decades, the Mahr MFU system has stood for accuracy and stability; dues to its universality and ultraprecision, it has qualified as a reference measuring center. It offers the lowest measurement uncertainty, which increases the tolerance margin for production, optimizes processes and ultimately reduces production costs.

The MarOpto MFU 200-3D is a universal machine for measuring spheres and aspheres, cylindrical lenses and freeforms. Measurements are automated, fast and close to production in 2D and 3D, with external influencing factors largely eliminated. The combination of optical and tactile probe arms enables users to determine both the surface form deviation of optical surfaces and their centering and tilt errors in a single clamping operation. A set of clamping devices specially developed for the optical system ensures high flexibility for wide-ranging applications. Production-oriented solutions for measuring and evaluating various lens geometries are offered by the Aspheric Lib and AnyShape software packages, which can be expanded based on the MarWin software platform.

With the MarForm MFU 200, external influencing factors such as temperature and vibration are largely eliminated. The measuring solution can measure a wide range of features such as form and position including roundness, straightness, cylindrical shape, and run – as well as absolute measurements including diameter, taper angle, and distance. MarForm MFU 200 is equipped with the T7W tactile touch probe and can be expanded to include the IPS optical sensor.
