The MIC 360 is an in-process diameter gage that measures internal and external diameters of machined parts, while they are rotating. Measurements are taken while the part rotates at speeds up to 360 SFM. Accuracies and repeatability are as precise as .0002". The range of outside dameters is unlimited. This innovative technology will eliminate the use of periphery tapes for all those large diameter parts.
Gage R&R studies have shown that the MIC 360 gives back as much as 200% of machining tolerance compared to conventional gauging techniques. The MIC 360 eliminates the need for bar gages and setting standards. With higher accuracies, tolerance is not consumed by the gauge, as with conventional methods. Instead, the MIC 360 allows more tolerance to be used on the product being measured.
The MIC 360 also elimminates variations in critical measurements due to different operators and inconsistent gauging techniques. Since the MIC 360 requires no operator involvement during the measurements, diameter readings are consistent every time.
