FORMTRACER Avant D3000/4000 series are highly functional and user-friendly surface roughness and contour measuring systems with innovative design features. Both surface roughness measurement and contour measurement are available on a single system just by replacing the detector.
A detector can be replaced easily without turning off the power and without needing a tool just by using the thumb-turn clamp lever, and the new contour/roughness detector is automatically recognized. This quick changeover minimises downtime and improves useability by removing concerns about detector switch and about damage to the detector from the malfunction.
Often a special method of workholding, such as a custom jig, is required to measure an inclined workpiece surface but this is not needed if you select a model from the FORMTRACER Avant D3000/4000 series since these have an inclining drive unit to handle this situation. This feature makes approaching the target surface and measurement of a large workpiece much easier.
High throughput is achieved thanks to high drive speed (X axis: Max. 80 mm/s, Z2 axis: Max. 30 mm/s) and acceleration (X asxis: 30 mm/s2).
