Description

The Mitutoyo 293-831 Digimatic MDC-MX digital micrometer is for taking outside diameter measurements. The micrometer has a measurement range of 0 to 1.0″ (0 to 25.4mm), resolution of 0.00005″ (0.001mm), and an accuracy of + or – 0.0001″ (0.002mm). The LCD screen displays in inches and metric units. This micrometer has a ratchet stop to help provide uniform pressure for precise, repeatable measurements. The measuring faces are flat and are carbide-tipped for durability. This unit turns off after 20 minutes of idle time and can be turned on by twisting the spindle for convenience.

Additional functions offered by this micrometer include zero setting and alarms for low voltage and counting value composition errors. The measuring force is 5 to 10 Newtons (N). It has a battery life of approximately 1.2 years of normal use. This unit comes with a SR-44 battery and fitted, plastic case.

Micrometers are precision measuring instruments that use a calibrated screw to measure distances. These measurements are translated into large rotations of the screw that are then able to be read from a scale or a dial. Micrometers are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering. There are three types of micrometer: outside, inside, and depth. Outside micrometers may also be called micrometer calipers, and are used to measure the length, width, or outside diameter of an object. Inside micrometers are typically used to measure interior diameter, as in a hole. Depth micrometers measure the height, or depth, of any shape that has a step, groove, or slot.

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.
