The last word in alignment accuracy
Our scales have optical targets evenly spaced every 2 mm. The optical micrometer on an instrument works like a vernier, displacing the line of sight laterally. Using this displacement, the reticle is "brought into register" with the nearest target on the scale, and the precise displacement is read directly from the graduated micrometer drum. By adding or subtracting the micrometer's reading from the scale position, a precise measurement is made.
More information is also available on our website regarding the patterns, features, and targeting characteristics that we use - see About Our Scales
All of our metric scales are graduated throughout their stated length. Each scale is shipped in a vinyl sheath.
A number of accessories are available for use with our scales (listed below). These include magnetic holders
, and special adapters. Also included is our line of Invar extension tubing
, available in many different configurations to suit your measurement needs.
The table below gives you the model numbers and lengths of our standard metric scales.
