Portable Units

HANDYSURF

Portable roughness measurements for incoming goods inspection, production and final inspection.

The simple solution to measure, evaluate and document surface roughness – from incoming goods to production all the way to final inspection.

Practical and easy to use – HANDYSURF combines the measurement, analysis and logging of surface roughness. From incoming goods to production all the way to final inspection: quality assurance becomes mobile with HANDYSURF – the measuring instrument goes to the workpiece – not vice versa. HANDYSURF is flexible and robust and can measure on horizontally as well as on vertical and overhead surfaces – depending on the tracing driver. If necessary, the tracing driver can be removed from the display unit and used separately.
HANDYSURF meets all common surface standards and users can switch between seven languages. HANDYSURF can be connected to a separate analysis computer via the external interfaces. Another unique feature is the optional connection to every ZEISS measuring system using ZEISS CALYPSO measuring software. This enables all measurement results, including surface parameters, to be combined in the 3D measuring machine record. Measuring is also simplified via the HANDYSURF automatic function because the measuring range, total path and display magnification are configured automatically based on the surface quality.

  • Easy-to-use, mobile and flexible for measuring, analysis and logging
  • Compact design
  • Work quickly using the automatic function for the measuring range, total path, cut-off and magnification
  • Can be connected to any ZEISS 3D measuring machine via a ZEISS CALYPSO interface
  • Surface analyses in accordance with all common standards: ISO, DIN, CNOMO, ASME and JIS
  • Interface connects to separate analysis computer
  • Measure in various positions: horizontally, vertically and overhead
  • Optional horizontal tracing driver to measure in the axial direction in tight spaces
  • Resolution: up to 10 nanometers
  • Extensive accessories (printer, columns, extensions, cables, printer paper)

HANDYSURF stands for mobile and uncomplicated roughness measurement in production, incoming goods and final inspection. HANDYSURF is ideal for measuring surface parameters on parts in the automotive, mechanical engineering and medical technology industries.
