Mitutoyo's i-Checker inspection instrument for indicators for in-house calibrationClick image to enlarge

Mitutoyo has introduced the next generation i-Checker, model IC-2000 for efficient in-house calibration for indicating gauges including dial indicator, dial test indicator, dial comparator (Hicator), bore gauge, cylinder gauge, digimatic indicator, linear gauge, electrical comparator (electronic micrometer, Mu-checker).

IC-2000 Product Highlights:

• Measuring range of 100mm

• Inspection can be performed 2.5 times faster compared to previous model

• Highest accuracy in its class for ultra-reliable inspection results

• Full-automatic inspection of digital indicators and semi-automatic inspection of analogue indicators

• Functions necessary for the inspection are collected in the operation box, allowing the operator to

concentrate on pointer adjustment, without eye-movement

Many enriched inspection functions are supported by the dedicated I-Pak software including:

• Allows inspection complying with various industrial standards

• Operator can create their own inspection standard using the customizing function

• Creation and print out of simplified inspection certificate
