The Microm II Digital Film Applicator is a casting knife film applicator with a digital LCD display of measurements in both mils and microns. Includes standard anodized aluminum side plates, and a standard 400 series stainless-steel blade.
|Side Plate Options:
|Aluminum (Standard) or Teflon (Tefcrom)
|Stainless Steel (Standard) or Teflon
Before use, check the zero settings of the micrometers. Place applicator on a polished granite flat plate or alternatively plate-glass of suitable size. Set micrometers at zero. The blade should touch the glass/granite flat plate from end to end without the side plate being elevated. When the applicator is placed between the observer and a bright back light the user should see no light from beneath the blade and side plates. The zero point should check within ± 0.0005". If not press the Zero button on the digital micrometer to reset the reading to zero. Repeat if necessary to assure a proper zero is achieved. Cautionary Note: Make sure that there is no foreign matter such as iron fillings adhering to the blade magnets as this might result in improper applicator calibration.
