As exclusive UK reseller for Sylvac, Bowers Group is pleased to announce that following Sylvac’s recent acquisition of the TESA-Scan division from Hexagon Group, Bowers’ Optical Measuring arm, Baty International, will now be handling sales and support for this important product line.

The Scan products complement Baty’s existing range of Optical Measuring instruments by offering an ideal solution for the measurement of turned parts:

The Scan 52 is the first horizontal machine specially designed for workshop measurement close to the machine tool. The concept is to measure the parts in the same position as they are machined. The intuitive software with its one-click measure function is perfect for multiple users

The Scan 25/50 are the entry level vertical machines for measurement of smaller cylindrical parts. These models feature an integrated projector on the left side of the machine, allowing the operator to preview the profile image. With the work piece secured, the machine moves the work piece through the optical path whilst scanning the profile. The open design of these machines makes them easily and quickly accessible by the operator

The Scan 50 CE Plus / Plus machines offer a motorised axis used to incline the work piece to the helix angle of the thread, thus allowing a true projected image of the thread form. This unique and exclusive Sylvac slewing system allows the operator to measure many more features on threads, such as minor diameter and root detail, on ball screws for example

All models in the Scan range are available with a rotating part axis for dynamic measurement such as concentricity and non-symmetrical features

Interested parties can submit an application study request to Bowers Group and, of course, are invited to get a full demonstration of the new Scan instruments at our impressive new demonstration suite at Bowers headquarters in Camberley.
