Micrometer Standard Bar Recall

Problem: Possible dimensional stability error in a small batch of 167 series 225mm Standard Bars.

Recently, it has been found that a possible dimensional error may occur in a small number of micrometer setting standard bars as supplied within the following micrometer sets or as supplied independently. As a result of this potential error, we hereby issue a recall notice and will replace the affected micrometer standard bars free of charge.

This recall affects only certain products produced within a defined time and within a range of serial numbers. The information below defines the affected units. Some of them are packaged within new micrometer’s sets while others have been sold individually.

As always, Mitutoyo strives to maintain the highest product quality and we thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation in this matter. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to you, our valued customer.

Fault description

Due to a fault in a heat treatment process the affected standard bars may incur a change in dimensional stability. 
As a consequence, if a micrometer zero point is adjusted using a faulty standard bar, the resulting adjustment will be adversely affected.


We will replace the affected micrometer standard bar (225mm) free of charge. Please contact your Mitutoyo sales office


Please do not hesitate to contact your Mitutoyo sales office if you have any questions.
