The design behind the PGI NOVUS system – Combining excellence with innovation

    Innovative technology is the core of the new PGI NOVUS system. It has a brand new dual bias gauge, providing diameter and angle measurement capability, surface finish in a normal and inverted direction with the same speed to ensure its optimal power. PGI NOVUS is the most accurate, stable and repeatable high precision measurement system on the market.

    Form Talysurf® PGI NOVUS

    Advanced system for surface finish, contour, 3D and diameter measurement

    At the heart of the new Form Talysurf® PGI NOVUS is a ground-breaking dual bias gauge.


    The NOVUS gauge provides the ability to measure diameter, included angle, surface finish in a normal and inverted direction with the same speed and accuracy. Through this development, Taylor Hobson has addressed challenges faced day-to-day by bearings, injectors and precision component manufacturers.
