World’s first 0.1 μm MicrometerFebruary, 03 2012
Mitutoyo announces the introduction of the world's first 0.1μm hand-held micrometer. This micrometer is ideal for customers who need to make highly accurate measurements with a hand-held tool, such as calibration of pin or plug gauges.
The micrometer uses Mitutoyo’s 0.1μm resolution ABS (Absolute) rotary sensor and screw machining technology to reduce the instrumental error to ±0.5μm, delivering high accuracy without sacrificing operability. A highly rigid frame and constant-force mechanism enable more stable measurement, while the clicks emitted during workpiece measurement assures the operator that the measurement is proceeding normally.
Body heat transferred to the instrument is reduced by a (removable) heat shield, minimizing the error caused by thermal expansion of the frame when performing handheld measurements. The Absolute rotary sensor eliminates the need to perform origin setting each time the power is turned on and allows you to start measuring straight away. With no overspeed errors, the High-Accuracy Digimatic micrometer (available with 0 -1”/0-25mm measuring range) delivers a higher level of reliability and offers a range of features to enable flexible measurement, including switchable resolution (.00005”/.00002”, 0.0001mm/0.0005mm), function lock and preset.
