Igaging EZ-View DRO Plus Digital Scales With Remote Readouts for Horizontal or Vertical Measurements

KBC Tools & Machinery is proud to offer Digital Read Outs (DRO’s) with absolute encoders from igaging  that allow you to read the position where you stop machining even when you turn the power off for the night or lose power during a storm or electrical shut off.  No more going back to a zero reading, no matter where you are in your machining path.

It seems like a no brainer that rather than use the old incremental style of digital read outs available for years, machinists and tool and die makers would choose the absolute style of encoders from igaging and Mitutoyo to get the job done.  With an incremental DRO when you turn the power off for the night or lose power during a storm or electrical shut off your readings reset to zero wherever you are in your machining path.  That’s like following directions on a paper map to drive 135 miles to your destination, driving 113 miles, and your map flies out the window…and you are in the middle of nowhere without any phone reception.  Isn’t it better to always know where you are, especially when you’re doing precision machining work?  Work that often is accurate to .0005”/.01mm?

Igaging EZ-View DRO Plus Digital Scales with Remote Readouts for horizontal or vertical measurements, with absolute encoders, are available with measurable ranges of 0-6”/150mm, 0-12”/300mm, 0-24”/600mm, 0-36”/900mm from KBC Tools & Machinery.  They have a resolution of .0005”/.01mm/1/128”.  Igaging EZ-View DRO Plus Digital Scales with Remote Readout Kits come complete with on/off button, present button, hold button, origin button, a 76” remote cable length, mounting brackets, 3V CR2032 battery,and an articulating arm to allow for stacking multiple displays.  The 6 key LCD display units come with magnetic strips to allow for quick and magnetic attachment to steel surfaces.  The EZ-View DRO has SPC/USB data output, and can easily be attached by an SPC/USB cable data kit or a wireless data kit, (available as optional accessories), to your computer to log your output without antiquated paper based log books. An AC power supply is also available as an optional accessory.

The igaging EZ-View DRO Plus Digital Scales with Remote Readout Kits and absolute encoders start at $81.90 US ($126.95 CDN) for a 6” kit from KBC.  At these prices, having a DRO on all of your machines in the shop or in your home shop is an affordable reality. What will you find to measure next?

At these prices we anticipate drill presses, smaller mills, lathes, and even quality control departments being fitted with these units to improve work and quality  in every shop.

Related Glossary Terms

  • precision machining ( precision measurement)

    precision machining ( precision measurement)

    Machining and measuring to exacting standards. Four basic considerations are: dimensions, or geometrical characteristics such as lengths, angles and diameters of which the sizes are numerically specified; limits, or the maximum and minimum sizes permissible for a specified dimension; tolerances, or the total permissible variations in size; and allowances, or the prescribed differences in dimensions between mating parts.

  • quality assurance ( quality control)

    quality assurance ( quality control)

    Terms denoting a formal program for monitoring product quality. The denotations are the same, but QC typically connotes a more traditional postmachining inspection system, while QA implies a more comprehensive approach, with emphasis on “total quality,” broad quality principles, statistical process control and other statistical methods.
