Schoeller introduces a new surface roughness meter

27 August 2019

To ensure compliance with relevant standards in the food and medical technology sector, Schoeller Werk will from now on use a new surface roughness meter (profilometer). This allows stainless steel tubes to be precisely tested at each 10th or 20th standard production length and can measure the surface roughness values in both longitudinal and transverse directions. Customers will in future benefit from optimized products with even faster availability.

Schoeller Werk has recently introduced a new device for the measurement of surface roughness values. The MarSurf GD 120 is controlled by software and permits the creation of its own measurement routines. In this way, Schoeller Werk can use pre-programmed settings for material samples, without having to alter the device setting manually to test a tube of different diameter. After each measurement, the device records a measurement protocol containing all information relevant to the test concerned. In particular, the measurement and the documentation of surface roughness values are simplified by the new device.
