How to Use the Mitutoyo Surftest SV-400 User Manual
The Mitutoyo Surftest SV-400 is a portable surface roughness tester that can measure 36 kinds of roughness parameters that conform to the latest ISO, DIN, ANSI, and JIS standards. It has a wide-range, high-resolution detector and a straight drive unit that provide superior high-accuracy measurement in its class. It can also perform skidless measurement, R-surface compensation, and fine contour measurement. To use the Mitutoyo Surftest SV-400 user manual, follow these steps:
Download the user manual from the Mitutoyo website[^1^] by entering the product code (178-946-2) in the search box and clicking on the download link.
Open the user manual PDF file and read the safety precautions, specifications, and features of the device.
Follow the instructions on how to install the battery, stylus, nosepiece, support foot, and optional accessories.
Turn on the device and select the desired measurement mode, parameters, and settings using the touch-panel LCD monitor.
Place the device on the surface to be measured and press the start button. The device will move along the surface and display the measurement results and profile on the screen.
Save, print, or transfer the data to a PC using the USB cable or memory card.
Refer to the troubleshooting section if you encounter any problems or errors.
The Mitutoyo Surftest SV-400 user manual also contains detailed information on how to perform various types of measurements, such as cylinder surface roughness, fine contour measurement, stepped features measurement, straightness measurement, and waviness measurement. It also explains how to use the surface roughness analyzing program SURFPAK-SJ for advanced data processing and report creation. For more information, please refer to the user manual or contact Mitutoyo customer service.
Benefits of Using the Mitutoyo Surftest SV-400
The Mitutoyo Surftest SV-400 is a versatile and reliable device that can help you evaluate the quality and performance of various surfaces. By using the Mitutoyo Surftest SV-400, you can enjoy the following benefits:
High-accuracy measurement: The device has a measuring range of 800 Âµm and a resolution of 0.000125 Âµm (at 8Âµm range), which enable it to detect even the slightest surface irregularities. The device also has a high-precision drive unit that ensures straightness and stability during measurement.
Wide range of parameters: The device can measure 36 kinds of roughness parameters that conform to the latest international standards, such as Ra, Rz, Rq, Rt, Rp, Rv, Rsk, Rku, Rsm, Rz1max, and more. You can select the parameters that suit your needs and preferences.
Skidless measurement: The device can perform skidless measurement by using a nosepiece that is interchangeable between skidless and skid measurement. Skidless measurement allows you to measure waviness and finely stepped features in addition to surface roughness. It also enables you to measure cylinder surfaces with R-surface compensation.
Fine contour measurement: The device can perform fine contour measurement by using a special stylus that has a small tip radius and a low measuring force. Fine contour measurement allows you to measure the shape and profile of small features, such as grooves, notches, holes, and edges.
Easy operation: The device has a large touch-panel LCD monitor that displays the measurement results and profile clearly. You can also use the monitor to select the measurement mode, parameters, and settings with ease. The device has a simple start button that initiates the measurement automatically.
Data management: The device can save up to 1000 data sets in its internal memory or on an external memory card. You can also print or transfer the data to a PC using the USB cable or wireless LAN. The device is compatible with the surface roughness analyzing program SURFPAK-SJ, which allows you to perform advanced data analysis and report creation.
