The basis of STRAIGHT-set forms a guideway in highest precision of fine-grained hard stone with a fixed or adjustable 3-point support at the Bessel points. On this guideway the vacuum air bearing measuring slide slides without contact on a highly stable air bearing pad. This system guarantees the highest precision and smoothness.
Optionally, STRAIGHT-set is available with motorization and encoder. The acquisition and evaluation of measured values are static or dynamic, and specially developed software solutions are available.

Accuracy specifications apply to 20 °C and temperature-stable conditions (ΔT ≤ 0.2K / 24h).
The values for straightness apply to a theoretical line. Straightness vertical: in the middle of the guideway surface / straightness horizontal: about 10 mm below the supporting surface.
STRAIGHT-set is available in several sizes. For special solutions or other sizes please contact us: Contact.
Air treatment unit SA 200
The air treatment unit SA 200 is used for cleaning and the regulation of the compressed air as well as to generate the required vacuum. A measuring interface and, depending on the application, a pressure monitoring are installed directly in the device. SA 200 is used, amongst other applications, for SQUARE-control and STRAIGHT-set.
To make measuring with the measuring device STAIGHT-line even more easy and efficient, you can order the CARBON-stand as a practical option. The bracket is adjusted to the correct height on the vertical column with knurled screws, and then clamped in the correct position.
