Press Release Summary:
Weighing 1 lb, Model TC-II measures vertical displacement in areas that are inaccessible to indicator, scriber, or other mechanical checking devices because of distance, or combinations of blended curves. It offers optically correct image (right side up, left-to-right) with magnification of 12.5X as microscope, and 3.5X at 7 in. as telescope. Unit features cross-hair reticle mounted in its eyepiece, 4 in. to infinity adjustable focal length, and 0.0001 in. per ft accuracy.

New Titan Cathetometer Measures Vertical Displacement in Hard-to-Access Areas
(APRIL 2007) - Titan Tool Supply, Inc., Buffalo, New York, introduces its new model TC-II Cathetometer, a precision optical instrument to measure vertical displacement in areas that are inaccessible to an indicator, scriber, or other mechanical checking devices because of distance or combinations of blended curves. The Cathetometer has a simple "cross-hair" reticle mounted in its eyepiece, featuring 90-degree cross-lines with equally spaced divisions and two concentric circles for vertical and horizontal alignment.
The new model TC-II Titan Cathetometer serves as a micro-telescope, providing an optically correct image (right side up, left-to-right) with magnification of 12.5X as a microscope and 3.5X at 7" as a telescope. Operating on ambient light - no additional illumination is required - the unit has an adjustable focal length from 4" to infinity, increased by rotating the front eye tube, and is accurate within 0.0001" per foot. The unit can be attached to any height gauge 18" or larger by a ¼" x ½" holding bar in place of an indicator or scriber attachment. Since it is lightweight (1 lb.), the Cathetometer stays level even on the lightest height gauge, according to Titan Tool.
The company states that its new model TC-II Cathetometer is constructed of high-quality metal components and is designed for ease of use in a variety of applications, such as:
Pattern Shops and Foundries
o Checking deep core boxes and patterns
o Checking masters made for three-dimensional duplicating (especially when several curves and radii are involved)
o Correlating scale models to the full-size finished workpiece
o Checking Kellering masters
Die and Machine Shops
o Checking the line-up of workpieces on machines
o Checking vertical and horizontal alignment of the electrode on Electrical Discharge Machines
o Providing a quick comparison of many similar workpieces as to holes, curves, etc
Aligning and Inspecting Aircraft Parts
Making Correlations between Master Templates and Workpieces
Aligning Workpieces on Large Planers and Shapers
