Titan Tool Supply Inc. has introduced the XAM-1, a measuring microscope with a dovetail slide and digital micrometer for precision measurements and recording. The micrometer shows readings in 0.001-mm divisions. The microscope provides precision measurements that are not limited by magnification, field of view or a calibrated reticle. Instead, its frame moves on the dovetail slide with a measuring capacity range of 27.94 mm, and the movement is read by the micrometer. Because the microscope is portable and sits directly over the workpiece to be measured, it can be used while the workpiece is still in a machine. It also can be used instead of an optical comparator or toolmaker’s microscope when it is not feasible to bring the workpiece to the microscope.
