mitutoyo digital caliper

The Mitutoyo Digimatic Caliper is a digital caliper and it can be used for many different types of measurements and can be used for many applications. It can measure tyres, wheels and brakepads for automobile maintenance, it can also be used in laboratories for precise measurements and industries manufacturing precision equipment.

A caliper is a tool that is often used in the mechanical engineering field, for measuring distances between two opposing edges. The basic caliper tool can be a simple compass with inward or outward-facing points that can be used to precisely measure minute length or width. After taking the measurement, the distance can be read by imposing the caliper onto a ruler or between the jaws of a vernier caliper.

The Mitutoyo 500-197-20 Digimatic Caliper has an Absolute Encoder that takes measurements immediately upon power up. It has a large .295 high LCD digits that you can read without any errors. Its measuring range is from 0 to 8 with a resolution of 0.0005. The battery life is excellent with up to 20,000 hours of battery life.

The digital caliper is much easier to handle than the dial predecessor. It is gearless and easy to read, and it has a zero-setting feature that will allow you to take measurement from any point of the caliper, avoiding the inconvenience of subtracting the numbers from one to the next. You can also switch between metric and inches.

One disadvantage of the Mitutoyo Digital Caliper, and for that matter any digital caliper, is that you will need to do calibration. To do the calibration, ring gauges will be required to accurately measure and calibrate the distance between the clamps. You will also have to maintain the Mitutoyo Digital Caliper very well. The tool is susceptible to easy damage if you do not take care of it, you will need to clean it regularly.
