The Mitutoyo 192-130 dial height gauge has a measurement range of 0 to 300 mm, and is precise to 0.01 mm, with + or - 0.03 mm of accuracy. The dial gauge has distinct, easily-read figures for precise measurement to 0.01 mm, and dual, resettable counters additionally measure discrete up and down distance changes, in 0.1 mm increments.
A large, hand-operated feed wheel raises and lowers the gauge on the parallel beams with smooth, even travel. The included scriber, used to mark a position on a workpiece, is 80 mm (l) x 32 mm (h), carbide-tipped for hardness and long life, and is held to the gauge by a screw clamp for easy and secure fastening. The grip-base design provides comfort when holding the unit in position by hand. The dial and counters display large, easily-viewed figures. The mass (weight) of the height gauge is 4.2 kg.
Height gauges, sometimes referred to as gages, are precision measuring instruments that travel on a vertical column (also called the beam) to measure and/or mark the vertical distance from the base of an object in fine units. The vertical position of the gauge and its attached pointer are changed by turning a calibrated screw, or one or more feed wheels. Recorded rotations are read from a scale, a dial, counters, and/or an electronic display. A screw clamp holds the pointer to the gauge. The pointer is typically sharpened to act as a scriber, and can be used to mark a position on a workpiece by scratching its surface. On compatible units, the scriber may be replaced by an electronic touch-signal probe. Height gauges are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.
Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and systems. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1934 and formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963, which is headquartered in Aurora, IL.
