The laser-based Labmaster universal measuring instrument is suited for gage calibration laboratories that need to precisely measure length, OD, ID, pitch diameter, linear displacement and thickness. According to the company, accuracy is maintained via a laser interferometer, a zero Abbé offset design and a large measuring table with center position, pitch and yaw controls. The computer-controlled precision air-bearing slide and gaging fingers reduce operator-influenced errors by maintaining constant force. It also minimizes wear and tear to both the measuring standards and the instrument.
