Series 293 – 1P Micrometer with 2 mm/rev Spindle Feed
Advanced pioneering technology has created the next generation of micrometer, the most revolutionary advance in micrometer technology since James Watt invented the instrument.
Faster measurement is achieved by using a coarser thread which feeds the spindle by 2 mm per revolution of the thimble. This increase in thread lead has been made possible thanks to new high precision thread cutting and testing techniques.
QuantuMike is equipped with a function lock feature to prevent the origin point being moved by mistake during measurement.
A graduated scale is provided on the sleeve for use with a reference mark on the thimble so that every millimeter displacement can be checked to provide extra confidence.
A statistical process control system and a measurement network system can be established to share information regarding quality with a model equipped with the data output function. (Refer to page A-3 for details.)
There is a lineup of convenient Interface Input Tools which enable the conversion of measurement data to keyboard signals and directly input them to cells in off-the-shelf spreadsheet software such as Excel. (Refer to page A-13 for details.)
Excellent resistance against oil, water and dust (IP65 protection level) enables this product to be used in machining situations that include splashing coolant fluid.
Measuring faces: Carbide.
The ratchet thimble mechanism helps ensure repeatable results by transmitting micro vibrations along the spindle to the contact face to provide a constant measuring force and encourage good contact with the workpiece. The ratchet works from the thimble as well as the speeder so it is always easy to use – even when making measurements one-handed. The sound of the ratchet provides the user with a sense of confidence and the speeder enables the rapid spindle feed needed when measuring widely different dimensions.
