Laser Micrometers

Precision, self-calibrating diameter measurement systems

Scantron supplies precision self-calibrating diameter measurement systems from some of the world’s leading manufacturers for a wide range of applications.

Aeroel’s line of Xactum laser micrometers is our preferred choice thanks to its industry-leading repeatability and warranty length. Every gauge features Aeroel’s patented ‘NO-VAR’ active thermal compensation which ensures correct diameter measurement in any condition, as well as built-in references to further guarantee enduring performance and remove the need to remaster the gauge for varying product size.

Gauges for online and offline laser measurement

Online Gauges: Aeroel gauges can be used for online laser measurement to control or supervise a production line, identify out-of-tolerance parts, identify defects or trigger alarms. The superior accuracy and reliability of the gauges allows our customers to work close to bottom tolerance to make material savings, with no loss in confidence.

Offline Gauges: Aeroel gauges can also be used off the production line in many ways, from quick diameter checks to complete component mapping including lengths, diameters, run-out, concentricity, cutting diameter and more.

Gauges can be programmed through various operator-friendly display and interface panels, by connection to a simple web browser utility, or via a plug-in for Excel spreadsheets which allows simultaneous recording and display of data in real time.

For measurement of hot steel and metal products, we supply LAP’s METIS series micrometers. Please get in touch for further information on this or any of our laser micrometers.

AEROEL Gauge Features

  • Permanent self-calibration: the measuring accuracy is guaranteed over time and periodical remastering of the gauge for large components is not required.
  • Patented NO-VAR technology: thermal expansion of the gauges is accommodated perfectly by intelligent compensation; obtain real results in or out of the metrology room, even on-line.
  • Vibration resistance and low linearity.
  • Ultra-high accuracy: genuine reproducibility; every gauge produced will be equal to or better than specification, guaranteed.
  • Made in Europe: the XLS series gauges comply with the high quality and safety standards set by the European Union.
  • 3 year warranty: the solid state laser diode and fluid dynamic bearing guarantees reliability and a long operational life.
