The Mitutoyo 192-153 dial height gauge has a measurement range of 0” - 40”, and is precise to 0.001”, with + or - 0.003” of accuracy.
This height gauge has dual, resettable counters that additionally measure up and down distance changes, in 0.01” increments. A hand-operated feed wheel raises and lowers the gauge on the parallel beams, for ease of measurement. The scriber, used to mark a position on a workpiece, is 30 mm x 60 mm (H x L), carbide-tipped for hardness and to help prolong life, and is held to the gauge by a screw clamp for fastening ease. The grip-base helps hold the unit in position by hand. The height gauge weighs 37.48 lbs/17.0 kg.
Height gauges, also called 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.
