Repairing Mitutoyo Digital Micrometers
I calibrate the threaded ring gages, calipers, micrometers etc in an in house lab at a fastener manufacturer. I've been searching the web, unsuccessfully, for information on fixing Mitutoyo digital micrometers. This particular one is a 0-1" pitch mic, 326-351, that had a broken crystal and was filled with coolant. I have cleaned these out before with varying results. This one will not increment the readout at all. It remains at 0.00000. I've tried removing the encoder disks and cleaning them, with isopropanol, thinking the coolant was preventing them from conducting/communicating with each other. Still no joy. I would like to find a way to fix these internally as they get bathed in coolant quite regularly here.
Thanks for any help and sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I could not find one that seemed more appropriate.
