Vernier scale in inch units for taking precise measurements
Small size for measurements to 0.5"
Available with plain or clamp-nut stem for mounting in a fixture
Satin chrome finish helps resist rust and reduce glare
Lapped carbide measuring face helps provide accuracy and wear resistance
The Mitutoyo 149 series micrometer head has a small size and a vernier scale in inch units for taking precise measurements to 0.5”. It is available with a plain stem for mounting in a fixture with a split-body clamp or setscrew, or a clamp-nut stem for quick mounting. The vernier scale is graduated to 0.001”, and has a satin chrome rust-and glare-resistant finish. The measuring face is carbide-tipped for wear resistance and is lapped to help provide accuracy.
Micrometers are precision measuring instruments that use a calibrated screw to measure small distances. These measurements are translated into large rotations of the screw that are then able to be read from a scale or a dial. Micrometers are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering. There are three types of micrometer: outside, inside, and depth. Outside micrometers may also be called micrometer calipers, and are used to measure the length, width, or outside diameter of an object. Inside micrometers are typically used to measure interior diameter, as in a hole. Depth micrometers measure the height, or depth, of any shape that has a step, groove, or slot. Micrometer heads are for mounting in fixtures, where they are typically used for measurement, or as stops or feeds. Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and systems. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1934 and formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963, which is headquartered in Aurora, IL.
Helping growers do what is best for their business operations has been Taurus’ priority since 2001. Our goal is to simplify the science and explain the benefits of introducing proven agronomic practices and products in the context of your farm operation – and to demonstrate the impact on your bottom line with defined ROI’s through research-based approaches to delivery.
Our highly-experienced team works with growers, retailers and leading edge agronomic consultants throughout Western Canada and beyond.
Taurus provides growers with the information and insights around Fertility Best Practices involving macronutrients and micronutrients. By understanding the building blocks of a strategic and targeted fertility program, plants are healthier and growers are better positioned to increase yield potential.
Taurus is at the forefront of plant enhancement technologies that work at the molecular level to turn on or turn off key genetic traits through a process known as transcription technology. This technology is being used to successfully assist plant development at various growth stages.
HARNESSING THE SYMBIOTIC BENEFITS OF THE LIVING SOIL
Agricultural science is only beginning to scratch the surface when it comes to understanding "the living soil" and the hidden wealth of beneficial organisms available to aid plant growth. Let us help you tap into the symbiotic relationships that are available to promote healthy plant growth.
Analytics are the starting point for an informed agronomic-based strategy. Taurus has built our business on educating growers which solutions will work best for their land and crops. The more we know about what is going on in your individual fields, the greater our ability to inform you on which nutrients, biological inoculants or plant enhancement technologies will have the greatest impact – and give you the best return on investment.
