Profilometer Repair

Bryco Industrial Service is the repair and rebuild specialists who can work on your profilometer and save your company the cost of replacing the unit. Because profilometers are precise in their measurements, it is essential that you trust only an experienced specialist to rebuild or repair your unit. We work on profilometers made by Mahr Federal.

Profilometers are used to determine the surface roughness of a wide assortment of surfaces. Since these devices are small and completely portable, they can be used with ease in a variety of environments including shop floors, in the laboratory or on the job. Profilometers are also versatile because they can be used upside down, horizontal or vertical. They can also be used in hard-to reach surfaces because of their small size.

The detector on the profilometer travels across the surface being measured, sending a signal to the readout. This is an extremely fragile component of the unit that can be easily broken. With its diamond tip, it is important that the detector is serviced and repaired by an experienced professional. You can trust Bryco Industrial Service to repair and/or rebuild even the most delicate instruments.
