The Digimatic digital micrometer from Mitutoyo America Corporation is the first micrometer to offer 0.1μm resolution measurement. The micrometer uses the Absolute rotary sensor manufactured using the company’s screw machining technology. This sensor reduces instrument error to ±0.5 μm to deliver high-accuracy with no trade-off in operability. The system eliminates the need to reset the origin each time power is turned on, thus enabling measurement immediately upon start up. In addition, the measurement origin can be preset to any value within the display range to reduce setup time and improve repeatability. The display can be zeroed at any position, making comparison measurement easier. Display resolution can be switched to 0.5 μm if 0.1 μm measurement is not required.
 
The micrometer features an extremely rigid frame for stable measurement while a constant-force barrel/spindle mechanism eliminates the possibility of overspeed errors. Transference of body heat to the instrument is reduced by use of a heat shield (removable), minimizing errors attributable to thermal expansion while handheld measurements are performed.
 
Additionally, the device supports output to measurement data applications such as MeasurLink, the company’s statistical-processing and process-control program that performs statistical analysis and provides real-time display of measurement results for SPC applications. The program can also be linked to a higher-level network environment for enterprise-wide functionality.
