GBC 170 : Gauge Block Measuring System

GBC 170 : Gauge Block Measuring System


Octagon Gauge block comparators GBC 170 precision gauge block measuring systems designed with two electrical high resolution length indicators.
(sum measurements) as recommended in ISO 3650 .

Features :
• Mikronix make Rigid cast-iron stand, making unit temperature stable.
• Easily adjustable vertical slide with upper probe.
• Electro-pneumatic lifting of both top and bottom length gauges.
• Gentle, precise and exteremely smooth operation carriage fixture due to slideways, which are imprevious to dirt.
• Ergonomical operation due to the optimally arranged gauge block holding fixture.
• Movement of the gage blocks due to support consisting of heardened circular guide pins.
• No zero setting required, since the set value is automatically related to the nominal value of the respective reference gage block.
• Very effective protection from heat due to an acrylic glass screen.
• Correction for measuring force.
• Correction of differing thermal expansion coefficients.
• Computation of mean values.
• Calibration program for gage block measuring unit.
• Inherent Stabilization of temperature.
