Mitutoyo's MPH-3515 Profile Projector Equipped with M2 2D Processor
Mitutoyo America has released the new M2 2D processor as part of a package with the PH-3515 profile projector.
Mitutoyo America has released the new M2 2D processor as part of a package with the PH-3515 profile projector. The M2 2D processor updates the PH-3515 with a touchscreen tablet and easier 2D processing for measuring dimensions. The M2’s graphics-based part view constructions enable the user to generate distances and tangent lines from within the graphical part view. The user can measure features, set nominals, apply tolerances and view deviation results in a few clicks for geometric tolerancing. Edge detection is optional. The M2 also provides flexible reporting capabilities, enabling customized report data and format including header, footer and graphics.
The PH-5415 features a 14" horizontal projector screen. The projector is equipped with accurate linear glass scales. Other features include profile and fiber optic surface illumination; a 10" × 6"-travel T-slot table for accessories; and a built-in digital angle counter.
The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.
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.
Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.
