AURORA, Ill., June 26, 2015 — Mitutoyo America Corp. has announced power-driven Z-axis models of its MF and MF-U measuring microscopes. The newest models include Z-axis motor-drive capability while retaining manual operation on the X and Y axes. The electrically driven movement for focusing provides better operability and relieves operator fatigue. The lower limit of the viewing head's travel range can be set to prevent the objective from colliding with the workpiece. Quick-release mechanisms allow rapid positioning on the X and Y axes. The eyepiece field number of 24 (for WF10×) offers a wide field of view that helps prevent eye fatigue from extended observation of measurement. Various stages are available to provide measurement up to 400 × 200 × 220 mm. The system is equipped with a 3-MP camera and an optional autofocus feature.
