The Mitutoyo 536-310 parallax-free type vernier caliper performs precise measurements to within 0. 05 mm, for applications requiring high levels of accuracy, especially in scientific research and in industries where parts must fit exactly. This left-handed type caliper takes inside, outside, depth, and centering readings. A thumbwheel permits fast measuring and a rotating screw controls the caliper’s movement. To improve visibility and readability and avoid parallax errors, the 536-310 has parallel, parallax-free vernier scales.

This caliper measures in metric units. The vernier reading of the lower scale, its most precise measurement possible, is 0. 05 mm. Parallax-free scales allows easy and positive readings. The scales are raised to slide easily and protect the graduation markings. A thumbwheel permits fast and easy measuring. A clamping screw on the upper scale rotates to control scale movement and locks to hold the sliding jaw’s position. The caliper is made of hardened stainless steel construction with a satin chrome finish. With its fixed and movable jaws, it has four-way measurement capability : outer diameter (OD), inner diameter (ID), depth, and step, where the butt end of the fixed jaw measures one end of a work piece before its upper/lower or inner/outer “steps” are measured. It has a main scale length of 229 mm, a lower jaw depth of 40 mm, an upper jaw length of 21 mm, an upper jaw depth of 16. 5, a beam width of 16 mm, and a depth bar. Range is 0 – 150 mm, resolution is 0. 05 mm, and accuracy is rated at + or – 0. 05 mm, which meets Federal Accuracy Specifications GGG-C-111B.

Calipers measure the distance between two opposing sides of an object. They make inside, outside, depth, or step measurements, according to their type. Calipers are commonly used in architecture, metalworking, mechanical engineering, machining, manufacturing, carpentry, and medicine. The simplest calipers have two legs to mark the two points and require a ruler to take the measurement. More complex calipers use two sets of jaws instead of legs and have up to two graduated scales. Vernier, dial, and digital calipers all give direct and accurate readings and are functionally identical, having a calibrated scale with a fixed jaw, and another jaw with a movable pointer that slides along the scale. The vernier caliper has a scale sliding parallel to the main scale for an additional, fractional reading to improve measurement precision. The dial caliper has a circular dial with a pointer on a toothed gear rack replacing the second vernier scale. As with the vernier, this second measurement is added to the reading from the main scale to obtain the result. The dial caliper is used for measuring size differential between two objects, as well. The digital caliper takes the same sort of differential measurements as the dial caliper by zeroing the display at any point along the slide, with an LCD (replacing the dial) that displays a single, easily read value in both English and metric units. Some digital calipers can hold data readings between measurements and send them to data collection devices.

Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and systems. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1934 and formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963, which is headquartered in Aurora, IL.
