AUTOMATIC WIRE CRIMP PULL TESTER Mark-10 introduces their all-new Model WT3-201M automatic wire crimp pull tester, designed to measure the pull-off forces of wire and tube terminations up to 200 lbF (1 kN). Suitable for wire harness manufacturers, assemblers, integrators, and other users, the WT3- 201M features a compact, rugged design suitable for laboratory and production environments. The tester conforms to numerous UL, ISO, ASTM, SAE, MIL, and other requirements for destructive testing. Non-destructive testing is also possible, such as pulling to a load or maintaining a load for a specified period of time, as per the requirements of UL 486A/B. Programmable pass/fail limits with red and green indicators and audio alerts help identify non-conforming samples. The WT3-201M accommodates wire sizes up to AWG 3 (0.25 in [6.3 mm] OD), or custom sizes via the available machinable blank fixture. Auto-start automatically begins the test when the wire sample has been loaded, and the test speed may be configured by the user as required. Upon sample break, the tester can automatically reverse, output the peak force, store the peak force, and zero the display, thereby increasing testing throughput and reducing the chance for operator error. Further testing efficiency is achieved via the available Profiles function, through which multiple test setups may be saved and recalled. On-board data storage and statistical calculations is provided for up to 2,000 readings, with available date and time stamp for each saved data point. Data can be transferred to a PC or other data collector via USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs. The WT3-201M includes MESUR™ Lite data acquisition software for single-reading or continuous data tabulation and one-click export to Excel. MARK-10 CORPORATION (888) MARK-TEN INFO@MARK-10.COM WWW.MARK-10.COM VISION MEASURING SYSTEM Mitutoyo America Corporation announces the latest version of the versatile Quick Image series 2-D vision measuring system. Two new systems with advanced one-click measuring functionality - available with 0.2X or 0.5X magnification - have been added to the lineup. The Quick Image Telecentric lens design offers a wide field of view and depth of focus, enabling easy measurements on workpieces with multiple step heights. A new one-click measurement function enables measurement and tolerance judgment with a single mouse click. This function enables automatic detection of a workpiece position and inclination, and batch measurement of multiple parts with the same shape, up to a maximum of 1,000 workpieces at one setting. Measurement results are displayed in real time directly on the video image, which enables tolerance limits to be seen at a glance. With improved measurement accuracy, Quick Image ensures classleading quality and capability. High-luminance with built-in LED lighting and a 3-megapixel color camera enable observation and measurement using high-resolution images. Additional key features include: • Easy mode for operation for entry-level users • Switch between large-focaldepth mode (normal) and highresolution mode • Wide field, rapid batch and high-accuracy measurement • User defined overlay templates • Large line up of X, Y stage sizes MITUTOYO AMERICA CORPORATION 888-MITUYOYO WWW.MITUTOYO.COM HIGH-MAGNIFICATION MEASURING MICROSCOPES Titan Tool Supply, Inc., Buffalo, New York, announces the introduction of models TM-8 and TM-10 high-magnification measuring microscopes with Vernier micrometer heads for inspection of electronic and semiconductor components, metallurgical parts, plastic molds, electrical strips, and other industrial quality control applications. Both feature magnifications of 50X, 100X, and 200X with a 10X eyepiece, and 5X, 10X and 20X objective lenses that have a revolving nosepiece and positive stop. A separate 20X eyepiece is available to double magnifications (up to 400X) and provide longer working distances. Optional objectives from 1X to 4X and 5X to 40X are also available to reach up to 800X magnification. Video adapters can turn the microscopes into videoscopes, according to Titan Tool. The differences between the models are the stages and micrometers. The TM-8 has a 2-inch travel stage in both the X and Y axis. The micrometers are 2-inch diameter with 1-inch travel and 0. 0001-inch divisions. The TM-10 has a 2-inch travel stage in the X axis and 6-inch travel stage in the Y axis. The X and Y axis have zeroing screws to set the micrometer at zero or an even number to start measuring. The range of the X axis micrometer is 1 inch; the Y axis is 2 inches. Both have 0.0001- inch divisions. Standard features to ensure high magnifications include a co-axial illuminator with a condenser, filter, and sub-stage illuminator, and an extra micro-screw ultra-fine depth focusing knob (attached to the standard rack-and-pinion focusing) according to the company. Titan Tool says that optional accessories are available with the new TM-8 and TM-10 microscopes to enhance usability and performance. They include: • Model RI-17 cold light, shadow-free fiber optic ring illuminator; • Model FOI-150 tungsten-halogen cold light fiber optic light source with variable intensity control; • Model AME-5M angle measuring eyepiece that measures more than 360 degrees to an accuracy of five minutes; • Models DM-54-210-100 1-inch digital micrometer head and MDD2-50 2-inch digital micrometer head for Z axis depth measurements; • TSTVA-12 video adapter that alleviates eyestrain for lengthy or continuous usage, offers viewing for more than one person at one time, provides magnifications up to 1300X (with a 21-inch monitor and 40X objective), captures frozen, digitized, or computerized images, and can lead to improved accuracy by eliminating parallax problems in the X-Y measuring axis and improving Z axis depth measuring.

R&R FIXTURES | (616) 847-6045 | WWW.RRFIXTURES.COM OPTICAL SHAFT MEASUREMENT SYSTEM Mahr Federal has introduced a new addition to their growing family of optical shaft measurement systems. Competitively priced and designed to provide fast, accurate, fully automatic measurement of smaller shafts and turned parts directly on the shop floor, the MarShaft™ SCOPE 250 plus features a highly accurate matrix camera with four million pixels. The system measures parts up to 250 mm in length and 40 mm in diameter with an accuracy that is previously unknown in this market segment. An MPE (Maximum Permissible Error) of less than 1.5 microns + L/40 when measuring diameter and an even more impressive 3 microns + L/125 when measuring length is significantly more accurate than other systems using line cameras. One key to the system’s speed is the state-of-the-art, highresolution CMOS matrix camera with a live image field of view of 40 x 24 mm, enabling it to capture an entire part diameter in a single view. With Z-axis positioning speeds of up to 200 mm/second and an image acquisition rate of over 120 images per second, measurements are performed faster than the blink of an eye. Zoom functions allow measurement of the smallest details such as chamfers and radii, which can be difficult and in some cases even impossible to test, with conventional measuring methods. MarShaft SCOPE 250 plus can be operated entirely on the integrated touch screen, or via a keyboard and mouse if desired. MarWin®-based EasyShaft™ software enables the precision measurement of diameters, lengths, contour features, and form and position tolerances in accordance with standards, and offers many new evaluation and documentation options, all with an easy-to-use intuitive user interface. EasyShaft runs on the Windows® operating system and is compatible with other Windows applications and printers. The touchscreen gives direct access to positioning, programming, measurement and documentation, including the use of “swipe functions.” The clear simple user interface helps keep track of everything users need to know, and many functions, such as loading measuring results or adding feature measurements, can be activated simply by clicking on obvious icons.
