Mitutoyo America Corp. has released the LSM-6902H laser scan micrometer, a non-contact, high-accuracy measurement system designed for measuring pin gages or plug gages.

Mitutoyo America Corp. has released the LSM-6902H laser scan micrometer, a non-contact, high-accuracy measurement system designed for measuring pin gages or plug gages.

The system features an accuracy of ±0.5 micron over the entire measuring range and a higher accuracy of ±(0.3 + 0.1ΔD) micron over a narrow range. The LSM-6902H has a resolution ranging from 0.01 to 10 microns (0.000001" to 0.0005"), a scanning rate of 1,600 scans/sec. and a laser scanning speed of 112 m/sec.

The sensor system’s scanning motor enables measurement accuracy down to 0.3 micron. The LSM-6902H is said to have excellent gage repeatability and reproducibility since measurements do not contact the workpiece. The standard output is RS-232C with analog I/O module. An optional two-channel digimatic code output unit is also available.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • How Accurate Is Your Machining Center?

    Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
