The 5500L Lab Stand is a versatile add-on to J Chadwick Co Model 8400 Optical Micrometer. It expands the range of applications by providing an option when none of the bases are suitable.
The Lab Stand was designed for situations where the subject will not fit under the Micrometer's objective lens, or the surface geometry won’t accommodate any of the Micrometer's interchangeable bases.
The Lab Stand eliminates the base so there is no contact between the Micrometer and the surface being inspected.
The X-Y stage makes it easy to precisely position subjects within the field of view. It's also not necessary to keep a hand on the Optical Micrometer to hold it steady during the inspection, which makes it perfect for use with an eyepiece camera.
The 5500L Lab Stand Kit comes packed in a sturdy ABS case for easy storage and portability. Kit Dimensions: 18” x 14” x 7”. Kit Weight: 22 LBS.
