Metrology Helps Hone Precision

Mitutoyo helps meet customer expectations in the realm of deep hole boring, where diameters are more than 20 mm. One of the specialties offered by Hone-All Precision Ltd. of Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, is the machining of nickel-chromium-based super-alloy components to tight tolerances. These oxidation and corrosion-resistant materials, typified by Inconel and Hastelloy, are well-suited for service environments subject to extreme pressure and temperature, and therefore, are favorites of the petrochemical industry, however, they are very difficult to machine. Accelerated tool wear is a constant concern. This is particularly true in the case of bored-hole features that sometimes approach three meters in length and which usually have to be finished by honing to meet stringent customer specifications. Form accuracy shaped up Due to the length of a typical bore, obtaining the accuracy potential of single-point tooling is impractical, except...

CNC CMM TRADE-IN TRADE-UP PROGRAM

CNC CMM TRADE-IN TRADE-UP PROGRAM

Since 1968, Mitutoyo Corporation has been manufacturing coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). The AE100 series manual CMM was the rst CMM to be featured in our U.S. catalog in 1976. Throughout the years, we have built tens of thousands of CMMs to serve a variety of industries around the globe. Due to the success here in North America, some of our CMMs have been in operation for more than 20 years. We are proud of our high quality and product performance, however, we are equally proud of our continued development and advancements in CMM technology. Based on our dedication to accuracy, reliability, speed and enhanced sensor technology, we believe now is the time to upgrade to take advantage of these bene ts. To help the thousands of operators using Mitutoyo legacy CMMs, we are...

Measuring the Future with High-Tech Metrology Equipment

Recent investments in high-level metrology equipment at Birmingham-based GB Precision mean customers in demanding industry sectors, such as aerospace and motorsport, can be assured of receiving components offering pinpoint dimensional accuracy and geometric conformance. Uncompromising quality is the ethos at GB Precision, a progressive engineering company with a continuous improvement strategy that is continually reviewed and developed. For instance, the recently refurbished metrology laboratory at this specialist in complex tooling solutions and machined parts houses a wealth of measurement and inspection technology that make it the envy of other toolrooms and machine shops. Taking center stage are two Mitutoyo coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) providing a measuring volume of up to 700 x 1000 x 600 mm. These CRYSTA Apex 7106 and BHN-710 models feature full CNC control, scanning capability, indexing probes and probe changing racks for...

Dial Test Indicators – Mitutoyo

Enhanced Durability, Sensitivity and Readability

Choice of dial position
