Gage Setting and Part Measurement Systems – MIC TRAC 3000

Gagemaker-MT-3000Employing a versatile bench mounted length measuring system allows you to measure parts, calibrate hand held gages, and preset indicator style gages.  The Gagemaker Shop Floor MIC TRAC™ Gage Setting and Part Measurement System (MT-3000 Series) sets or zeros most gages with the standard resolution of .00005″, accuracies ranging from ±.0001″ to ±.0004″ (traceable to the NIST) and the digital read out is CE approved. The cost effective Force-Lok™ feature improves repeatability from operator to operator and is well suited for a variety of environments including the shop floor.

The MIC TRAC™ System is an electronic, adjustable calibration and measurement center that will inspect parts, preset indicator style gages, and calibrate a variety of hand held inspection gages. The MIC TRAC 3000 System (MT-3000) is suited for use nearly anywhere, on a shop floor to a calibration lab.

The MIC TRAC™ System contains receiver pads, which are precision ground in matched sets, and used as parallel surfaces for measuring or holding fixtures. The MT-3000’s digital readout (DRO) displays measurement readings in inch or metric.*

Gagemaker-Cal-Pak
CAL-PAK

The MT-3000 measurement system includes the base unit, which houses the optical scale and provides the system’s precision measuring capability. The base unit may include an optional Force-Lok™ feature that provides a constant measurement force, which improves repeatability from operator to operator. A computer may be substituted for the system’s digital readout unit (DRO). This computer comes pre-installed with our CERTIFI™ Gage Calibration software and our TDWin™ Thread Engineering software.

For gage calibration, the optional CAL-PAK fixture package can be included with any MIC TRAC™ system. The 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 one of our most popular MT-3000 calibration bundles (a MT-3012F-50-USBC and a CAL-PAK fixture set) and the number of calibrations (each instance of each gage) you do per year  below.
