(base price)

The unique design of the vernier scale eliminates the optical-variation in reading caused by the different positions of the operator's eye. It also eliminates the guesswork of reading measurements between dial graduations.
Specify desired anvil diameter (fraction/decimal equivalent)
Eliminate the need for zeroing and calibration caused by frequent movement.
The delayed action mechanism assures any operator of a constant anvil "strike" pressure each time the micrometer handle is released. The mechanism is so designed that even with rapid handle release, it is impossible to "slam" down the upper anvil upon any material between the two anvils. This eliminates any chance of crushing/flattening the material and receiving a false reading.
This feature is recommended to help eliminate the problem of casting deflection and potential operator error, which can occur with 12" and 18" throat micrometers. In addition, it provides uniform anvil pressure. The micrometer is foot activated. Unlike motorized units, it can be operated as quickly or as slowly as the operator chooses. With foot activation, both hands are free - a valuable feature when both hands are needed to handle cumbersome materials or when fast production gauging is required.
This simple cam action eliminates human operation whenever and wherever it is required. The motor reduces handle/lever damage often caused by untrained or inexperienced operators. It can be incorporated for use with most 4" and 7" throat depth analog, bench micrometers.

(price as configured)

This instrument eliminates the minute errors caused in any instrument when measuring at varying thicknesses. The lever activated upper anvil descends by gravity (dead weight) and will have uniform surface pressure at any given point of travel, from .0005" to a full 1/2" thickness. The DW Model can also be supplied with a delayed action mechanism to reduce the speed at which the upper anvil descends.

Standard Features Include:

  • 5/8" anvils
  • Range: 0 - 1/2"
  • 5.8+ p.s.i.
  • Accuracy: +.0002" - .0003" and/or +.00508 mm - .00762 mm

Delayed Action


The delayed action mechanism assures any operator of a constant anvil "strike" pressure each time the micrometer handle is released. The mechanism is so designed that even with rapid handle release, it is impossible to "slam" down the upper anvil upon any material between the two anvils. This eliminates any chance of crushing/flattening the material and receiving a false reading.

Pneumatic Operation


This feature is recommended to help eliminate the problem of casting deflection and potential operator error, which can occur with 12" and 18" throat micrometers. In addition, it provides uniform anvil pressure. The micrometer is foot activated. Unlike motorized units, it can be operated as quickly or as slowly as the operator chooses. With foot activation, both hands are free - a valuable feature when both hands are needed to handle cumbersome materials or when fast production gauging is required.

Vernier Scale


The unique design of the vernier scale eliminates the optical-variation in reading caused by the different positions of the operator's eye. It also eliminates the guesswork of reading measurements between dial graduations. Reading the Vernier Scale: Take the .001" reading from the dial graduation nearest zero ("0") on the vernier scale. In the illustration, .002" is the nearest to it. Then, reading to the right on the vernier scale, the number 2 graduation coincides exactly with a graduation on the micrometer dial. Therefore, the reading in the example to the right is .0022"

Electric Motor


This simple cam action eliminates human operation whenever and wherever it is required. The motor reduces handle/lever damage often caused by untrained or inexperienced operators. It can be incorporated for use with most 4" and 7" throat depth analog, bench micrometers.
