Slip Gauges are known as Gauge Blocks. They are Precise Measuring instruments. These Slip Gauges are universally accepted end Standard of length. You know, Johanson first introduced the slip gauges, so they can be called as Johanson gauges as well. And he is a Sweedish Engineer. Construction of Slip Gauge / Gauge Blocks / Johanson gauges […]
Metrology is a science of measurement. It meant to understand the units of each quantity and the realisation of the units and calibration. In each country, they follow different unit systems, among them, the Metric system is the predominant system in the world. In this article, we have listed all the different Metrology topics that we have discussed so far.
Based upon the field of application Metrology can be further divided into
- Industrial metrology
- Scientific or Fundamental metrology
- Legal metrology
see what are these different metrology types here.
In Metrology, The comparator is a Precision Instrument, which is used to compare the dimensions of the given component with the actual working standard. The Comparator is an indirect type of precision measurement because it will not measure the dimension, it will indicate the difference in measurement between the given component and working standard, and another […]
In Metrology V-Block are material holding devices for the machining operations such as milling or drilling etc. In this article, we have discussed what is V-block, Construction of V-Block, Uses of V-Block. What is V-Block? V-Block is a jig structure which is having True V faces(Grooves) and slots. This is a Cast iron structure. The […]
The Dial indicator is a mechanical mean, having gears and pinions or levers for magnification system. They can responses to linear measurements even when they are too small. The Dial Indicators can be used as comparators. Basically, comparators are the precession measuring instruments used to compare the workpiece measurements with the standard measurements. When this […]
Topic: Micrometer, Working Principle, construction, Reading measurements. The Micrometer is known for screw gauge because a calibrated screw is used for precise measurements. The accuracy of the micrometre screw gauge is 0.01. This is very high accuracy compared to the vernier calliper accuracy 0.02. Most of the engineering works have to require more precession. so screw gauge is […]
