Mitutoyo gauge blocks are the most accurate materialized length devices out there.
That is why the requirements that gauge blocks must meet are stringent and based on their suitability as calibration instruments. These requirements are:
Geometric and dimensional accuracy: they must meet the requirements of length, parallelism and flatness.
Adhesion capacity to other gauge blocks: determined by their surface finish.
Dimensional stability over time, that is, they must not "age".
Coefficient of thermal expansion close to common metals: this minimizes measurement errors in the face of temperature variations
Wear and corrosion resistance.
Mitutoyo provides a wide selection of patterns and reference surfaces such as gauge block sets to meet various industry needs. The selection of the best game, or games, depends on the accuracy required by the intended application, the desired level of convenience (larger games offer more combination possibilities) and the environmental conditions in which they will be used.
The variety of reference tools, from gauge blocks, granite tables, height master (CheckMaster), stands and comparators, bolts and plugs. The line of durometers covers the main measurement methods (Vickers, Micro-Vickers, Rockwell, Brinell) either for measurement laboratory or on the line.
All Mitutoyo gauge blocks meet or exceed all known specifications. The flatness, parallelism and surface finish necessary to achieve the required accuracies are the same or better than the standard requirements.
An inspection certificate will be provided with all Mitutoyo gauge blocks with a serial number on the case and an identification number on each block. For this inspection, each gauge block is measured relative to the top-level standard using a gauge block comparator.
Grade K gauge blocks are inspected by absolute measurement using an interferometer. Gauge block sets and individual gauge blocks are supplied with a calibration certificate. The certificate specifies the deviation from the nominal length.
