KÄFER MESSUHRENFABRIK GMBH & CO. KG
The well thought-out design, accurate components and robust construction of our Precision Dial Gauge series offer reliability, durability and long working life. The standard features that enhance the quality across our entire product range are:
Calibrations of all Dial Gauges are traceable to national and international standards.
The final quality control for the whole series includes visual inspection and full mechanical functional tests.
Supplied with Declaration of Conformity and Confirmation of Traceability.
Materials and components selected specifically to ensure a long working life.
The digital display with its large numerals makes it very simple to use this Dial Gauge.
Function and display section can be rotated through 270°. The sturdy construction guarantees precision and reliability.
Following functions of the Digital Dial Gauges MD 12T and FMD 12T can be used:
Memory set hold
Réf I / Réf II
Preset value recall
Selection of measuring direction

Most modern methods are applied in the production of our high quality Dial Test Indicators. They are both sensitive and shock-resistant. Here are some of the advantages applicable to the whole series:
All features of the models reading up to 1 mm measuring range conform to DIN 2270. This applies to all deviation spans, the measuring force and the hysteresis error of the measuring force
Automatic change of the direction of measurement
Indication clockwise in all types
Precise components, running in ruby bearings, warrant highest precision throughout
Precision bearing for the lever shaft
Body with 3 dovetail slides for clamping the stem and other equipment
Body hard-chromed in order to protect the dovetail slides against damage
Tungsten carbide ball 2 mm Ø in measuring inserts
Dial adjustable by knurled bezel
Supplied in a convenient box with transparent lid with 1 stem Ø 8 mm h 6 and 1 spanner for changing the contact points
The Comparator Gauges Compika offer a high degree of security and precision. They are based on a solid and well thought-out construction taking into account the latest technology. They are manufactured by the most up-to-date methods. The following quality features characterize our manufacturing programme of Comparator Gauges Compika:
Their design conforms to the requirements of DIN 879-1. This applies not only to the dimensions but also to permitted spans of error, hysteresis and measuring pressure.
Effective shockproof system
Pinions and shafts of the movement are jewelled
After removal of the safety cap the adjustment screw on top of the case allows simple and safe zero setting of the instrument over the total measuring range.
A safety cap prevents unintentional turning of the fine adjustment facility.
Stem and spindle are made of hardened stainless steel.
The measuring spindles are very sensitive on account of their accurate guides.
Additional overtravel assists with the...
The base is dull chromed, hardened and lapped.
The metal collet attachment guarantees reliable fixing of the dial gauge. An additional internal hexagon screw makes exchanging the dial gauge easier.
Each of our mechanical dial depth gauges is equipped with the 10 mm long special contact point 573/21.
Dial Thickness Gauges are used for measuring the thickness of a very wide range of materials such as leather, paperboard, paper, felt, rubber, glass, sheet, metal, films, plywood and plastics. The shape of the feelers should be adapted to the material being measured.
We supply all our Dial Thickness Gauges with contact points type c as standard, unless otherwise stated in our catalogue. Gauges can be supplied with other forms of contact points (a,b,d, or e) at no extra cost.
The large display has a good visual perception for easy reading of the measuring result. The use of aluminium for the body of the instruments makes them light and easy to handle.
The Digital Thickness Gauges are switchable from metric reading to inch reading.
The advantages of having a correctly set saw for all sawing work are well known. By using a Saw Setting Dial Gauge any specified set for various kinds of timber can be exactly maintained, thus ensuring maximum output and efficient workmanship.
The method of measuring could not be simpler. The gauge is laid on the saw blade so that the sprung tracer touches the cutting edges of the saw. The pointer gives instant reading of the measurement. As the Gauge has a dial on both sides, it can be used either left or right handed.
1. Zero setting of the dial on any flat surface / measuring block
2. The required tolerance range is set on the dial in the normal way. In our example: ±10
3. The measuring operation is carried out very simply by inserting the specimens in the measuring stop
4. Reading of the measurement and the tolerance. The next measuring operation can begin
