Mitutoyo America Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the PJ-Plus Series Profile Projector to the industry leading lineup of Mitutoyo metrology products.
The Mitutoyo PJ-Plus is a new series of profile projectors that utilize LED lighting and provides reliable measurements in manufacturing site environments. The PJ-Plus provides stable dimension and angle measurements in harsher environments conventional models can’t handle, such as manufacturing and processing lines.
- LED illumination: Implementing LED vs. halogen lighting eliminates the need for a main-unit cooling fan, limiting entry of oil, mist, dust, etc. into the measuring instrument. LEDs are also more durable, greatly reducing lamp burnout and power consumption.
- Stepless illumination adjustment: Stepless illumination control is more efficient and allows light levels to be set precisely to suit surface textures and color or a workpiece.
- Built-in digital XY counter: Displays XY axes and angle readings in large characters on the front of the machine for easier readability and eliminates the need for an auxiliary DRO.
- Improved durability: The absence of a cooling fan (via LED illumination) reduces adhesion of oil and dust to the internal mirror and light source to maintain a higher optical performance. The LED bulb lasts much longer than halogens, meaning less maintenance and reduced down time.
