LabMaster® Standard Gage Block Comparator
Product Announcement from Pratt & Whitney Measurement Systems, Inc.
Pratt & Whitney Labmaster Standard® for Vertical Measuring Labmaster Standard® is laser-interferometer-based for ultimate accuracy. Our exclusive digital interferometer measures the dimension of the specimen by comparing the measurement probe position to the wavelength of a HeNe laser light source, effectively coupling the wavelength of light to the part being measured. Our patented laser path is in-line with the measurement axis to eliminate Abbe offset error.
The Labmaster Standard has the advantage of having two instruments in one, a direct reading instrument and it can be used as a gage block comparator. The LMS gage block comparator can calibrate gage blocks using only a handful of master gauges.
The LabMaster Standard measures and calibrates:
- Gage blocks
- Ball bearings
- Plug & pin gages
- Thread wires
- Film thickness
Features & Benefits
Rigid design - For maximum repeatability and reproducibility
Motorized probe - Improves system stability and eliminates operator influence
Digital laser interferometer - Guarantees maximum resolution, traceability, and performance
Two-step calibration - Advanced timesaving feature allows for calibration in only 30 seconds
Automatic cycling - Increases measurement throughput rate when measuring standard gage sets
GageCal ® PC control software - Microsoft Windows® based software reduces data entry, eliminates transcription errors, and speeds up measurements. Automatic gage block tolerancing is included with the GageCal software.
Flexible anvil fixturing - Ensures system integrity and accommodates a variety of measurement applications. Gage block calibration fixtures are available for both square and rectangular gage blocks.
