B-115BMitutoyo operates a policy of continuous improvement that aims to provide the customer with the benet of the latest technological advances.Therefore the company reserves the right to change any or all aspects of any product specication without notice.B-115B■Maximum Loading Capacity of Micrometer HeadsThe maximum loading capacity of a micrometer head depends mainly on the method of mounting and whether the loading is static or dynamic (used as a stop, for example). Therefore the maximum loading capacity of each model cannot be denitely specied. The loading limits recommended by Mitutoyo (at less than 100,000 revolutions if used for measuring within the guaranteed accuracy range) and the results of static load tests using a small micrometer head are given below.Test methodMicrometer heads were set up as shown and the force at which the head was damaged or pushed out of the xture when a static load was applied, in direction P, was measured. (In the tests no account was taken of the guaranteed accuracy range.)1. Recommended maximum loading limit2.
