The new HEIDENHAIN-SPECTO ST 3087 RC length gauge is particularly well suited for applications under harsh ambient conditions, e.g. in metal-cutting production areas. It has special protection for its sensitive measuring technology. For example, measuring processes with a maximum deviation of ±1 μm at a measuring range of 30 mm can take place directly in the production process, instead of removing them to quality islands or laboratories. This saves time and money through significantly reduced time, cost and transportation.
