Mitutoyo America Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the QM-Height Series High Performance Height Gage to its small tools line. The QM-Height is used to measure height, height difference (step), inside/outside widths, inside/outside diameters, circle pitch, free-form surface maximum/minimum heights and height difference by scanning measurement (scanning measurement is approximately 1 mm above and below from the start point of measurement). It features best-in-class accuracy ± (2.4+2.1L/600) μm, and a built-in pneumatic flotation system enables smooth movement over a surface plate.
Two subdisplay modes display the value from the previous measurements or the value from the zero/origin point. Origin points can also be set from hole centers. Highlighted features include GO/±NG judgment by LED and display symbols, inside/outside diameters, maximum/minimum heights and displacement measured using a standard probe, the Absolute encoder maintains the origin, new d2 Digimatic and USB outputs, increased power supply and an air-suspension feature.
