500 Series IP67 ABSOLUTE Digimatic Coolant-proof Calipers

March 10, 2016
Mitutoyo America Corp. announces the renewal of its 500 series IP67 ABSOLUTE Digimatic coolant-proof calipers.
Product highlights include:
Incorporates Mitutoyo’s ABSOLUTE measurement system. No need to reset the origin.
The automatic power on/off shuts down the LCD after 20 minutes of inactivity, but the ABS scale origin is unaffected. Power is restored to the display when the slider is moved.
Can be integrated into statistical process control and measurement systems.
Larger LCD of 9mm, a 22% increase in height for improved visibility.
Extended battery life of 5 years has been achieved due to low-current integrated circuit.
Easy to operate with advanced ergonomic design that uses only one button.
Battery cap does not require a screw driver for simplified battery replacement.
Mitutoyo IP67 ABSOLUTE coolant-proof calipers can be used in workshop conditions exposed to coolant,
water, dust or oil. 100% air-leak test ensures every caliper conforms to IP67.

Related Glossary Terms

  • coolant


    Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.

  • process control

    process control

    Method of monitoring a process. Relates to electronic hardware and instrumentation used in automated process control. See in-process gaging, inspection; SPC, statistical process control.

  • statistical process control ( SPC)

    statistical process control ( SPC)

    Statistical techniques to measure and analyze the extent to which a process deviates from a set standard.
