MMV - Dimensional Measuring Gauge for Round Parts

Measuring gauge with v-blocks.

MMV OVERVIEW


The Kentucky Gauge MMV Digital Measuring Gauge is designed to simplify the quality control process of measusring overall part dimensions. The MMV functions similarly to digital calipers, but features a more robust construction and integrated v-blocks to make measuring round parts much more user friendly. Additionally, a rigid support stand is included with optional casters for portability.
Utilizing our high-resolution, non-contact linear encoder, we can acheive unmatched accuracy and reliability.

NON-CONTACT AND WEAR-FREE LINEAR ENCODER


Our encoders use magnetic sending technology, so they work without contact and ensure a virtually wear-free and maintenance-free operation. This ensures high-accuracy measurements for a lifetime.

Unlike rotary encoders, there are no moving parts. All the mechanical components found in rotary encoders (flange, shaft, bearings, etc.) are not needed, which eliminates mechanical failures and deficiencies.




ABSOLUTE LED DIGITAL READOUT


The MMV digital readout features a high-vis LED display with multi-point compensation to to provide maximum accuracy and absolute precision.

Features include:

  • Inch or mm display
  • Simulated absolute encoder functionality to ensure you do not lose positional infomration when the readout is powered off.
  • Swivel mount to ensure visibility from all angles.



QUICK AND SIMPLE MEASUREMENTS WITH THE KEYED V-BLOCKS


Our v-blocks are keyed to allow operators to quickly and easily adjust the supports for varying stock lengths. No tools required!




MAINTENANCE-FREE Roller BEARINGS


The MMV utilizes sealed roller bearings made from the highest quality stainless steel. The high-grade roller bearings ensure a smooth and precise carriage travel.
Made to last a lifetime, we have never had a roller bearing failure in over 20 years!
