CERAMIC MASTER SQUARES
Ceramic Master Squares are absolutely necessary for accurately measuring the perpendicularity, squareness and straightness of the X, Y, and Z axes of machine tools. These ceramic master squares are made of aluminum oxide ceramic materials, a lightweight option to granite or steel.
Ceramic squares are commonly used to check machine alignments, level and machine square. Leveling mills and squaring up a machine is critical to both keeping your parts in tolerance and keeping a good finish on your part. Ceramic squares are much easier to handle then granite machine squares inside of a machine. No crane is needed to move them.
Ceramic Master Square Features:
Extended Calibration Life
Manufactured from advanced ceramic materials with exceptional hardness, these ceramic master squares are much harder than granite or steel. Now you will have less wear from repeatedly sliding the instrument on and off a machine surface.
Advanced ceramic is totally non-porous and inert, so there is no moisture absorption or corrosion that would cause dimensional instability. The dimension variation of advanced ceramic instruments is minimal, making these ceramic squares especially valuable for manufacturing floors with high humidity and/or high temperatures.
Measurements are consistently accurate with advanced ceramic materials because the thermal expansion for ceramic is very low in comparison to steel or granite. Accuracy is .000025 per 6 inches – Grade AA -they are all finished on 6 sides.
Easier Handling and Lifting
Half the weight of steel and one-third that of granite, one person can easily lift and handle most ceramic measurement instruments. Lightweight and easy to transport.
These Precision Ceramic Master Squares are made to order, so please allow 3--5 weeks for delivery.
Lead time may vary depending on production schedule.
