Abstract:
Taylor Hobson, a global leader in ultra-precision measurement instrumentation, has introduced a breakthrough metrology instrument that is able to perform three core measurements: roundness, form and surface finish on a single platform. The all-new Talyrond 500 Series combines Taylor Hobson's decades of experience in high-accuracy surface measurement instrumentation with its expertise in ultra-precision machining.

Multi-functional Talyrond 500 Series from Taylor Hopson combines roundness, surface finish and contour on a single platform

Leicester, UK | Posted on December 1st, 2011

The Talyrond 500 offers a highly cost-effective solution for extremely accurate roundness, contour and surface measurements that previously required three separate instruments, resulting in savings in both time and equipment outlays. In addition, the Talyrond 500 Series boasts of an impressive measurement resolution of 0.3 nm.

The highly versatile Talyrond 500 Series of metrology instruments uses rotary, vertical and horizontal measuring datums to duplicate a machine tool's movement to exactly reproduce the work piece shape. This ultrahigh precision simulation of a cutting tool path then allows for precise control of a manufacturing process.

The Talyrond 500 is ideally suited for a wide range of high-accuracy measuring applications, including precision bearings, fuel injectors, crankshafts and turbocharger parts. In addition, the new Series offers a comprehensive range of standard accessories along with a long list of highly specialized accessories that are able to accommodate the most demanding applications.

The Talyrond 500 Series features a high-resolution gauge and low axis noise for linear or circumferential surface roughness measurement; frictionless air-bearing spindle and precision column for roundness, cylindricity and straightness measurements; and a patented calibration technique for the measurement of radius, angle, height, length and distance.

The instrument provides high-productivity and error-free performance regardless of operator skill. It performs calibration, center and level functions along with measuring routines automatically. These features along with simplified teach and learn programming techniques, comprehensive user prompts and on-screen instructions combine for unparalleled ease of operation.

While traditional inspection methods are able to detect out-of-specification components, the Talyrond 500 is able to help users quickly rectify production issues that cause these inaccuracies. Deviations can be broken down into irregularities that have both frequency and amplitude. Harmonic analysis can identify these imperfections, allowing users to isolate and correct their cause.

Noise and vibration issues typically occur on components produced on machines with alignment, balance or chatter problems. As the level of manufacturing precision increases, it has become more difficult to minimize these often subtle machine tool effects. However, the Talyrond 500 with its frictionless air-bearing spindles and high-precision encoders is perfectly suited for identifying and isolating high-frequency harmonics. A simple roundness measurement by the Talyrond 500 followed by harmonic analysis rapidly identifies these types of problems and provides information for their correction.
