µMaxµm Digital Indicators Featured at EASTEC 2011

With a higher resolution, µMaxµm is marketed as most versatile indicator on the market

Published: Monday, March 21, 2011 - 12:14

(Mahr Federal: Providence, RI) -- Mahr Federal Inc. will be featuring the next generation of its well-established µMaxµm line of digital indicators at EASTEC 2011, May 17–19, at the Eastern States Exposition, West Springfield, Massachusetts. Mahr Federal will occupy booth No. 3019.

The enhanced µMaxµm II line offers a range of new features, including Dynamic Max, Min, and TIR; two-point difference measurement; multiplier factor for ratio measurements; indicator serial-number identification; resolution to 10 µin.; selectable continuous output; and longer battery life.

"µMaxµm indicators have been standard equipment for quality control operations for nearly a generation," says Paul Mailloux, manager of precision gauges for Mahr Federal. "Now, based on new transducer technology with increased 10 µin. resolution, µMaxµm II indicators approach the accuracy of higher-end amplifier systems. These are by far the most versatile and complete digital indicators ever."

Versatility of the new µMaxµm II indicators is enhanced in a number of ways. Resolution is selectable in increments from 0.001 in. (0.02 mm) down to 0.00001 in. (0.0002 mm) to accommodate differing application requirements. Two-point difference measurement allows comparison of different readings or calculation of measured values. The addition of Multiplier Factor for ratio measurements allows chordal-type measurements, useful for making ID/OD measurements using a V plate, or for gauge fixtures using lever-type, nondirect contacts.

The µMaxµm II l is available in two models, the µMaxµm II and the µMaxµm II XL, which provides longer measuring ranges. Weighing as little as 6 oz, all µMaxµfm units are lightweight and ruggedly built to withstand hard use. The case, crystal, and stem assemblies have gaskets to resist fluid contamination.

Also on display at Mahr Federal's EASTEC booth will be:
• The new MarCheck measuring and evaluation unit for Mahr's Linear 100 universal length measuring instrument. MarCheck allows both measurements and calibrations to be performed quickly and reliably at the touch of a button.
• A new generation of of MarCal digital calipers. Included are a number of innovations, such as lapped guideways, a new reference system that retains the zero position setting, and an increased number of product options and accessories.
• The new Digimar 816 CL height gauge, which provides accurate measurements without complicated procedures. Robust design and user-friendly operation combine with advanced features and functionality to improve dimensional measurement on the shop floor or in the lab.
