Heidenhains QC 2000 handheldClick image to enlarge

Heidenhain Corp.'s the Quadra-Chek 2000, evaluation unit or use with everyday measuring and metrology tasks in parts inspection applications. 

Measuring point acquisition with the QC 2000 is quick, easy and accurate when utilizing crosshairs or when used with optical edge detection on profile projectors, measuring microscopes or 2D measuring machines with up to three axes.

For complex and repetitive measuring tasks, the QC 2000 user can automatically record a measuring program and run it at any time. This digital readout keeps track of the presets, sequence of measurements, tolerances and data-output commands. When the recorded measuring program is executed again, the QC 2000 displays visual instructions relating to the features to be probed, thereby providing direct and repeatable guidance for the user. 

The QC 2000’s “Measure Magic” function makes measurement especially easy. This function uses the acquired measuring points to automatically select the matching geometry, enabling a high level of repeatability and significantly reducing measurement uncertainty.

All measurement results are graphically displayed on the unit’s high resolution 7-inch colour touchscreen. The integrated measurement report function makes it easy to create a report directly upon completion, and its intuitive operation makes it easy to document these results in the form of measurement reports including as a PDF or CSV file.  These measurement reports contain the measurement and tolerance results as well as additional information.

Trim flap discs boost stock removal, service life

Polifan PSF Z-TRIM flap discs feature composite backing that can be trimmed to extend service life and reduce time consuming disc changes on steel and stainless steel (INOX) applications.


Pferd has introduced the Polifan PSF Z-TRIM flap disc. These versatile new universal flap discs have a lightweight composite backing that can be trimmed to extend service life, enhance surface finish and reduce time consuming disc changes. The composite backer and flap arrangement help reduce vibration and noise levels. Produced with a higher density of zirconia coated material (Zirconia alumina Z) than standard PSF flap discs, these discs provide long service life, an improved surface finish, and a soft, cushioned, contamination-free grinding effect in applications ranging from surface grinding, weld grinding, blending, chamfering, and deburring on steel and stainless steel (INOX).

Their premium zirconia self-sharpening abrasive grain produces high stock removal rates throughout the life of the disc, along with a long service life. In addition, the high-density flap arrangement, with an increased amount of coated material vs. conventional flap arrangement, facilitates reduced vibration and noise levels, along with flexible grinding action and superior results on irregular shapes. 

The Polifan PSF Z-TRIM trimmable flap discs provide superior stock removal, service life and surface finish

The PSF Z-TRIM flap discs perform on all power outputs, though high-powered angle grinders will achieve optimal results. They are available in 4 ½ in. and 5 in. diameter with either a 7/8 in. plain arbor hole, or a 5/8-11 thread for threaded spindles, in grit sizes of 40, 60, and 80. The 5/8-11 thread quick-change version is made with a zinc hub..
