Mitutoyo 12AAA715 Probe Diameter Calibration Block For Use With Mitutoyo LH-600D Linear Height Gauge
The Mitutoyo 12AAA715 steel probe diameter calibration block is used to input ball touch probe diameters to the Mitutoyo LH-600D linear height gauge, to calibrate the radius of the probe’s contact tip automatically. When the probe is set to the underside of the workpiece, the calibration block provides known diameter holes to the height gauge. Steel construction of the calibration block provides strength and durability. The Mitutoyo 12AAA715 probe diameter calibration block is an accessory for use with the Mitutoyo LH-600D linear height gauge, which is a high-performance 2D measurement system.
Height gauges, sometimes referred to as gages, are precision measuring instruments that travel on a vertical column (also called the beam) to measure and/or mark the vertical distance from the base of an object in fine units. The vertical position of the gauge and its attached pointer are changed by turning a calibrated screw, or one or more feed wheels. Recorded rotations are read from a scale, a dial, counters, and/or an electronic display. A screw clamp holds the pointer to the gauge. The pointer is typically sharpened to act as a scriber, and can be used to mark a position on a workpiece by scratching its surface. On compatible units, the scriber may be replaced by an electronic touch-signal probe. Height gauges are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.
Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and related systems. The company, founded in Tokyo in 1934, formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963 with headquarters in Aurora, IL.
