Universal Supermicrometer® ...

Product Announcement from Pratt & Whitney Measurement Systems, Inc.

The Universal Supermicrometer® measures :

  • Length standards
  • External threads
  • Plugs & Pins
  • Rings
  • Dial and Test Indicators
  • Your Precision Part

The definitive bench micrometer, the Universal Supermicrometer®, offers the advantage of being two instruments in one, by providing the ability to measure both internal and external parts, gages or standards. Additionally, as a high precision, direct-reading metrology instrument, it is equally capable of checking critical parts on the shop floor or serving as the heart of your in-house calibration laboratory.

Features & Benefits of the Universal Supermicrometer®

  • Mechanical and Thermal Stability - A rugged cast iron base and thermally stable composite materials insure repeatable and reproducible results
  • Linear Encoder with Zero Abbe Offset - A high precision glass scale located along the measurement axis eliminates Abbe offset errors that reduce overall measurement uncertainty
  • "Variable Attitude" Measurement Table - Vertical table adjustment is provided on all instruments. Four-axis measurement table available
  • Variable Force - Ranging from -8 to +40 ozf
  • Touch Screen Operator Interface - LCD touch screen computer system with P&W GageCal software
  • Two Point Calibration - Mastering with two, NIST traceable blocks, allows continuous, accurate measurement over the full direct reading range. This provides significantly higher levels of productivity when compared to single point comparators.
  • Flexible Fixturing - Pratt & Whitney's bid-directional probes (US Patent) and flat anvils are standard accessories. The bid-directional probes allow for both internal and external measurement without time consuming set-up changes. V-groove fixturing provides repeatable probe positioning.
  • Auto Zero Mode - Allows measurements to be taken at great speed, increasing throughput, without compromising accuracy.
  • Part Temperature Compensation - A sensor is provide to monitor the temperature of the specimen
  • Dual Measurement - Switches between English and Metric units without recalibration
