Testing Machines, part of the TMI Group of Companies, has launched its 49-56 Digital Micrometer.
The new 49-56 model combines a modern look with a robust mechanical design and improved electronics, including a digital linear encoder. The system features a software program for controlling test speed, auto zero, auto sample detect, selectable opening distance, selectable measurement range, selectable dwell time, built-in auto sample feed option, statistics, multiple languages and calibration records.
The 49-56 offers a cantilever balance system to allow extremely light pressure measurements. This feature also allows adding or removing additional weights for multiple pressure applications. Designed for thickness measurements of sheet materials, the 49-56 can be configured to meet any ISO, ASTM, EDANA or other international specifications for paper, corrugated, plastics, plastic film, tissue paper, nonwovens, textiles and other sheet like substrates.
