Features & Benefits

When measuring easily deformed workpieces, the Mitutoyo Litematic offers ultra-high precision measurement with extra-low measuring force. The Litematic is ideal for measuring materials such as rubber, plastic, film, sheet metal, semiconductors, medical specimens, and other difficult-to-measure components. Standard force models work extremely well for applications where speed and constant force measurements are required. This increases repeatability and reproducibility between operators. 

  • Standard Force Units (0.15N and 1N types) are capable of measuring at a certain measuring force by using a Litematic feature, while the 0.01N type is suitable for measuring delicate workpieces
  • The spindle’s low thermal-expansion properties and extremely durable ceramic measuring table minimizes the effect of temperature variation during use
  • The motor-driven spindle stops when the contact point touches the workpiece and can then measure the maximum, minimum or difference values using a constant force
  • High resolution down to 0.01μm (0.5 µinch), and wide measuring range of 50mm (2”) for accurate measurements of various types of workpieces
  • Measuring system VL-50-B (integrated display type), and VL-50S-B (separate display type) are available
  • The measuring table supplied with VL-50-B is ceramic and corrosion-free for easier maintenance and storage
  • Weight set and stand are optional accessories available
