Surtronic S-100 Series

The newest addition to the Surtronic family, the Surtronic S-100 series is a range of roughness testers that builds on the capabilities of the Surtronic 25.

Designed for shop floor, industrial and inspection room applications, the S-100 series offers a versatile solution for all your surface finish measurement requirements. Application specific accessories can be tailored with a variety of fixtures for your specific need. 

Ideal for a wide range of industries including precision bearings, automotive and aerospace engineering, the S-100 series has the key attributes that are most important for quality control in today’s precision industries;

  • Advanced parameter options to suit your application
  • USB Connectivity for charging, USB stick storage or printing
  • Measure any surface, any height with the included stylus lift
  • Anti-slip V-feet mean the system can be used on flat or curved surfaces
  • Built to last, by design – Impact resistant rubberised mouldings 
  • 2000 measurements from a single charge.
  • Taylor Hobson provides full certification for artefacts and instruments in our purpose built ISO graded clean room UKAS facility.

The S-Series portable roughness testers come in two variants: the S-116 is our standard offering, whilst the S-128 offers extended measurement range and analysis capability.

Surtronic Duo

Portable rougness testers for checking surface roughness.

Surtronic Duo is a battery powered, portable surface roughness measurement instrument capable of checking multiple parameters in a single trace. surtronic duo measures Ra at the touch of a button and shows the result on a large LCD window.

Cycle time is about 5 seconds and result is saved until another measurement is taken.

Surtronic Duo features:

  • There is no setting up or programming of the device
  • It is ready to use out of the box
  • Operator training is not required
  • Battery life is 5000 measurements minimum.

Surtronic Duo uses an infra-red [IrDA] link between the upper and lower units to provide remote, cable free operation up to a distance of one meter.

Surtronic Duo: Reference code 112/3115-01
Basic roughness parameters Ra and Rz plus advances parameters Rp, Rv and Rt.


About Surface Roughness Measurement 

Surface roughness is often referred to as just 'Ra', but the analysis of surface finish extends well beyond this simple parameter. For process control, Ra may give some indication that something has changed, but it is the role of other parameters and a visualisation of the surface profile which tell us how the surface has changed and how it might affect functional performance. Surface roughness testers provide a measurement of surface finish and a solution for process control, surface optimisation and defect analysis. For example, by performing defect analysis during or after manufacture, surface measurement can help identify the location and severity of defects, controlling and improving the improving the quality, functionality and durability of a product. Some surfaces, such as precision lenses require an exceptionally smooth surface finish. Others, such as brake pads and surfaces which require treatment (paint, adhesives etc) need specific roughness characteristics. Surface roughness testers provide the means of controlling such surfaces.
