BLUM roughness measuring systems

Surface roughness gauges by BLUM can be used for the most varied measurement and monitoring tasks in CNC machining centres.

Position Measurement

Fast determination of current workpiece position (workpiece zero point) prior to the roughness measurement, machining or after resetting by digital (switching) measurement.

Roughness Measurement

Automated roughness measurements on machine tools in mass production. Indirect detection of tool wear and direct inspection for machining errors on workpieces or functional surfaces.

Modular System

The modular design of the measuring system enables customer-specific adaptation for special measuring tasks. BLUM offers a comprehensive range of accessories such as extensions and elbows for this purpose.

Workpiece Inspection

Inspection of the manufactured workpieces for machining errors and adherence to manufacturing tolerance by means of control measurements prior to clamping.

Coolant Load

Reliable and fast measurements in coolant thanks to modern measuring mechanism with enhanced measuring force.

Mass Production

Ideally suited to mass production under the harshest conditions.
