MITUTOYO GAGE BLOCK SETS
precision CALIBRATION AND INSPECTION
Mitutoyo Gage Blocks are precision measurement tools used to calibrate and verify the accuracy of other measuring instruments. They are rectangular, metal blocks made of high-grade steel or ceramic materials, with two or more extremely flat and parallel surfaces.
These blocks are designed to have extremely accurate and uniform dimensions that are used as a standard for measuring the accuracy of other tools, such as micrometers, height gauges, and dial indicators. They are typically sold in sets, with each block in the set having a specific dimension that is a multiple or fraction of the basic unit block.
Mitutoyo Gage Blocks are manufactured with extreme precision and are usually calibrated to an accuracy of 0.00005 inches (0.00127mm) or better. They come in various grades, with Grade 0 being the most accurate, followed by Grade AA, Grade A, and Grade B. The blocks are usually etched or stamped with their nominal dimension and grade for easy identification.
In addition to their use in calibration, Mitutoyo Gage Blocks are also used for setting up and checking the accuracy of machine tools, such as lathes and milling machines, and for other precision measurement applications in industries like aerospace, automotive, and engineering.
Overall, Mitutoyo Gage Blocks are essential tools for maintaining the accuracy and precision of other measuring instruments and for ensuring the quality of machined parts and components. Their high accuracy, reliability, and durability make them a preferred choice for professionals in various industries.
