Form Talysurf® i-Series PRO

Form Talysurf i-Series PRO - Contour, Surface Finish Measurement Device

  • Overview +

    The Form Talysurf® i-Series PRO is a range of high accuracy instruments capable of simultaneous surface finish and contour measurement.The system's low noise axes and high resolution gauge ensures measurement integrity with choice of gauge ranges providing versatility for a variety of applications.

    The Form Talysurf® i-Series PRO surface finish and contour measurement device is supported by a word-leading inductive gauge, supplied in 1, 2 and 5 mm ranges. The 1 mm option with 1 nm resolution offers a cost effective, higher accuracy solution for surface finish and form. The 5 mm gauge with 5 nm resolution offers increased flexibility for more demanding applications, for parts that require analysis of surface finish, form and contour.


    • Cylinder blocks and heads - Form, surface finish, geometry of threaded holes, angle of valve seats & guides
    • Crankshafts and camshafts - Form, geometry and surface finish
    • Gears - Surface finish, morphological filtering and DXF to CAD comparison
    • Sheet metal - Evaluation of coated and uncoated rolled steel and Waviness parameters

    System Configurations

    Designed to provide configurations that suit your requirements, from sheet metal to crankshafts or engine blocks to valve guides. A choice of gauges, traverse units, column sizes, software options and accessories allow high precision surface finish and form measurements to be made on small, large or complex components, for laboratory design analysis or production batch measurements.

    Verification of System Measurement Accuracy

    Taylor Hobson is the only company that can prove radius accuracy and form capability over the full gauge range. This is to certify the integrity and reproducibility of the results the system produces. Other manufacturers quote less radius accuracy and form capability over a significantly reduced gauge range, indicating less confidence in their measurement results.

    Powered by Metrology 4.0 Software

    Metrology 4.0 delivers a simple, intuitive interface with virtual display and real time control. The state-of-the-art point and move axis control function (SMART Move) delivers precise positioning and measurement with ease.

    Cutting-edge technology

    Taylor Hobson’s advanced software enables dimensioning in accordance with part drawings and provides an exact reflection of the Part Co-ordinate System (PCS) delivering the final link in the manufacturing loop.

    Metrology 4.0 software is easy to use with an intuitive user-interface, virtual display and real time control. The state-of-the-art point and move axis control function delivers precise positioning and accurate measurement.

    SMART Move and CAD models

    A powerful utility that enables online and offline programming around a CAD model. Features include a stylus tip “flight path” enabling collision detection.

    The Metrology 4.0 visual display is an exact replica of the real instrument; seeing is believing. Measurements are made between pre-defined points or from points fed back from the analysis process. Improved accuracy and repeatability can be achieved via the unique feedback process.

    Powerful Desktop Publishing

    The desktop publishing features are powerful and simple to use allowing customisation of result layouts and ensuring a more professional and personalised look to your brand.

    • Generate interactive reports and multi-page documents
    • Multiple documents can be displayed on screen, to compare results
    • Build a professional report and include corporate logos

    One measurement, multiple results, instant feedback

    • Surface Finish - High resolution gauges with low noise enable roughness, waviness and form in one measurement
    • Contour - Our patented calibration technique enables measurement of radii, angle, height, length, distance and more
    • Topography - Using an optional motorized Y-stage and Metrology 4.0 software, transform your conventional 2D measurements into 3D
