Kafer Dial Indicator
versatile metric dial indicator made in Germany



Basic Kafer models come with flat back and steel point

Kafer metric dial indicators, made in Germany, are basic, well built dial indicators which can be used for any and all metric reading applications. The M2.5 contact point is fully exchangeable to many different shapes and styles (see our page 133 for a selection of optional points).

The 30 mm range indicator (M2/30T) differs in that the exposed spindle length is 35 mm instead of the 15 mm shown in the photo above, and the upper spindle protrusion is 33 mm instead of the 13 mm shown.

Take a look at these specifications:

  • Graduations: 0.01 mm
  • Range: 10 mm, 20 mm, 30 mm or 50 mm
  • Range per revolution: 1 mm
  • Bezel diameter: 58 mm (Group 2)
  • Stem diameter: 8 mm
  • Mounting stem length: 22 mm
  • Back: flat
  • Tolerance markers
  • All metal bezel
  • Contact point: M2.5 spherical insert (ruby ball on model M2TS)
  • Shockproof movement on model M2TS
  • Accuracy according to DIN EN ISO 463 / DIN 878
