Mitutoyo
the innovative leader in digital precision measurement

 

This Japanese company is possibly the largest single manufacturer of precision measuring tools outside of China. Some of their products were, until a few years ago, assembled in the USA of Japanese components and somewhat misleadingly labeled "made in USA."

Mitutoyo leads the field in digital measurement technology and what we really like is the fact that they never stop improving their products. Unfortunately this also means that this year's innovations will be out-dated before you can count to five tenths, but that's the nature of digital technology and we have all learned to live with it.

It isn't always easy to spell. Mititoyo, Mitituyu, Mitotuyo, Mititoya are variations often seen. It isn't the easiest brand name to pronounce, either. It's a bit of a tongue twister for English speakers. Try: Mitt-oo-toy-o with the stress ideally placed at the beginning of the word.

Mitutoyo has an excellent online catalog and a comprehensive data base of parts breakdowns including models that pre-date the digital age. Their catalog is full of details and more products than anyone can dream of. We have chosen to highlight some of our favorites on this web-site.

 

How can I tell if it is a fake Mitutoyo?

The Chinese are very busy making Mitutoyo fakes which are, on the surface, quite convincing. So much so, that Mitutoyo is forced to change its model numbers every two or three years to keep ahead. The best way to avoid getting an inferior Chinese imitation is to buy only from an authentic Mitutoyo distributor located in the United States. Do not buy from other countries, including Japan. You may be sorely disappointed to receive your new indicator by China Post. Be on the lookout for phrases such as "70% off list price" and other unreasonable discounts. No genuine Mitutoyo gage can be sold for those prices. If you buy through Amazon, look for the words "sold and shipped by Amazon". If another distributor's name is listed on Amazon, you may want to call Mitutoyo first to find out if they are legitimate. The large catalog companies are probably safe: Travers, Grainger, MSC, etc. because they have a reputation to uphold. If you want to buy directly from a distributor and by-pass Amazon, check the Mitutoyo web site for one in your area. Sometimes distributors can be very helpful in ways that the automated Amazon site can not. If you have already received a fake Mitutoyo caliper or indicator and can not return it (usually the case) just go ahead and use it until it breaks down, but be more careful the next time around.
 

Repairs

 

Many mechanical and digital gages such as calipers, micrometers, bore gages and indicators can be repaired by Long Island Indicator Service. Obsolete digital tools such as digital calipers, micrometers and indicators which are no longer featured in the Mitutoyo catalog, are often beyond repair.
