AUTOMATIC SYSTEMFT-ZERO Series

AR

By combining with Hardness Tester, stage control is automated in indent/multi-pointmeasurement to reduce the dispersion caused by each operator.
This system is very effective for large-scale rationalization and energy saving.

OUTSTANDING FEATURES

REPORT GRAPH CHART

REPORT GRAPH CHART

Measurement data can save it in CSV form and transfer it to an original report.(Common to each model)

DISTANCE &ANGLE MEASUREMENT FUNCTION

DISTANCE &ANGLE MEASUREMENT FUNCTION

Only click between two points can measure the distance and click three points can measure the angle easy.(ARS・ARS-F)

IMAGE OF PROFILING FUNCTION

IMAGE OF PROFILING FUNCTION

The original position set is very simple by this function to recognize a shape of sample automatically.(ARS・ARS-F)

  • HIGH RESOLUTION CAMERA(Common to each model)
    • Equipped with a 1.3M pixel high resolution digital camera.
  • IMAGE PROCESSING SOFTWARE(Common to each model)
    • Capability of reading unclear indents on un-mirror surface has been improved by more advanced image processing software.
  • MEASUREMENT IMAGE SAVING FUNCTION(Common to each model)
    • Measured indentation image can be checked quickly. Easily and quickly edit the data by re-measuring the saved image.
  • VARIOUS DATA OUTPUT FORMAT AND STATISTICAL PROCESSING(Common to each model)
    • For the measuring of carburizing / induction hardening, the selected hardness case depth shall be displayed and recorded on the chart once the multiple measuring is completed.
    • Multiple measuring data, Hardness chart, Case depth, Max. value, Min. value, Mean value, Dispersion, Standard deviation, OK-NG criteria, Conversion data etc… various data output shall be available.
    • Display and output of color profile picture linked with hardness values are standard function.
    • Excel data transfer function. Test result shall be exported to the original report Form.
  • MOTORIZED XY STAGE(ARS・ARS-F)
    • It is possible to move the stage to the center by double clicking and move the stage finely by dragging.
      Easy to align the sample’s original position and it can drastically shorten the setting time.
  • VARIOUS MEASURING PATTERN(ARS・ARS-F)
    • Fully automated test cycle (indent, measuring, recoding data) by selecting measuring pattern.
    • Random measuring combined with sample profiling function, and measuring function which traces edge of sample as standard feature
  • FUNCTION WHICH TRACES EDGE OF SAMPLE AS STANDARD FEATURE(ARS・ARS-F)
    • Straight・Zigzag・Circle・Arc・Line Set・Random・Matrix・Teaching etc…
      We will meet users’ needs.
  • SAMPLE SURFACE INCLINATION/SLOPE CORRECTION FUNCTION(ARS-F)
    • Z axis shall be controlled along with surface inclination by selecting 3 positions’angle setting.
      This function is to improve the accuracy of load apply and measurement position.
      Moreover to shorten the auto focus time, and a safety limiter prevents contact between the sample and the lens or indenter.
