LH600F Offers Added Features and Benefits

Mitutoyo America Corporation, a leading manufacturer of precision metrology instruments and solutions, is proud to announce the release of the Mitutoyo LH600F/FG Linear High Measurement System. The LH600F is the latest model in the Mitutoyo Linear Height Gage line with several added features and benefits along with best-in-class accuracy using a high-accuracy scale unit and high-accuracy guiding mechanism manufactured in our own Japanese facilities.

The LH-600F now features a touch screen interface that allows for easy and intuitive operation, allowing users to measure with the press of a button or through touchscreen icons. The rotatable and adjustable display of the LH-600F also allows for use from both front and rear orientations as well. There are new output options including a Digimatic output that allows data to be sent directly to Excel or SPC software, wired or wirelessly, while maintaining USB and RS232C output capabilities.

Other new features include:

  • A new self-check feature can detect dirt or oil on the encoder, ensuring the instrument is clean and able to provide accurate measurements
  • Instant changes to units, resolution and delta measurement from the previous reading can now be made
  • An air bearing system makes it easy to move the height gage around; a semi-float mode allows it to slide more easily while taking measurements, even with heavy parts
  • Motorized capabilities provide better repeatability and reproducibility along with improved 2D mode to measure angles, bolt hole circles and more
  • A new optional footswitch is available for hands-free repeat measuring of volume parts
  • Multiple probe options (optional) and probe position is switchable for better perpendicularity and straightness measurements
  • Excellent accuracy of (1.1+0.6L/600)μm with 0.1μm/0.5μm resolution/repeatability
