The target application for the MRA Air/Electronic column from Stotz USA LLC was a low-cost SPC device that incorporates air gaging and electronic gaging into a simple design. As with all of the company's air-gaging devices, this new column is designed specifically for use on high-production, tight-tolerance parts. The MRA features a 12" touchscreen. All relevant points of the part's measurements are displayed on-screen. Programming to the column is done using either the touchscreen or remotely. There are four bays in the front of the column that allow either electronic (LVDT-half bridge) cards or air-electronic cards to be inserted. Each card is able to host four simultaneous measurements. The MRA can seamlessly integrate into a user's quality system.
