Schaumburg, IL (February 2015) – HEIDENHAIN is pleased to announce the latest expansion of its gauging line, the ZERO-FORCE METRO Length Gauge. With the uncompromising accuracy that HEIDENHAIN customers have come to expect, extremely sensitive materials can now be measured without fear of product deformation. It is especially suitable for measuring malleable materialsin several industries, including medical device, chemical, and precision mechanics.

Two new  variants of the established 1Vpp METRO gauge are available immediately in 12mm stroke lengths; one with gauging forces of 0.25N in any mounting orientation with a weak spring and one with a gauging force of ~0.0N mounted vertically downward with a ZERO-FORCE spring mechanism.  Even with the improvement to the force spec, the METRO still maintains its high accuracy of ±0.2µm and thermal stability due to the optical encoder technology inside.
