Precision Gage Calibration Systems – MIC TRAC™ 4000

Establishing an in-house calibration service represents an investment in facilities, equipment and trained personnel but grants you TOTAL control over MT-4000-with-Gagesall of your calibration process as well as saves you time and money over the long term. The Gagemaker In-House MIC TRAC 4000 Series Precision Gage Calibration System enables you to inspect parts, calibrate and track a wide variety of gage styles, including ring and plugs. This innovative high precision metrology system with 1.00″ travel guarantees extremely high accuracies to ±.00005 and a resolution of .00001″ (traceable to the NIST appropriate national standard). This system also enables you to track and maintain gage history as well as produces calibration certificates.

In-House Precision Gage Calibration System- MIC TRAC 4000 Series

The MIC TRAC Calibration System is an electronic, adjustable measurement center that inspects ring and plug gages, presets indicator style gages, and calibrates a variety of hand-held inspection gages.

The MT-4000 measurement system includes the base unit, which houses 2 precision optical scales. These glass scales give the MT-4000 systems a precision measuring capability with accuracies to .00002”. The base unit includes receiver pads and anvils that are manufactured and precision ground to within .00001” to provide parallel surfaces for measuring. The MT-4000 also contains a weight system that supplies the necessary measuring forces to meet national standards.

Several models of the MT-4000 are available. The standard MT-4000 includes a desktop computer containing digital readout software, CERTIFI. Other packages includes the digital readout software and two more functions in the software that provide very powerful tools to inspect parts, calibrate gages and track gages. The functions consist of a computerized digital readout , calibration report writer and a database for tracking gage information.

For gage calibration, the MIC TRAC measurement system can include the CAL-PAK, as an option. CAL-PAK is an assortment of fixtures that attach to the base unit for holding gages securely during the calibration process. Proper positioning of the gage improves the accuracy of the calibration and provides more consistent results.

To help you with your decision process, we’ve created a quick and easy Return on Investment Calculator based on the PGC-12-W2 MIC TRAC Package (12″ MT-4000 and accessories) and the number of calibrations (each instance of each gage) you do per year  below.
