1 Precision Measuring

2 Precision – How close together or repeatable the results are –A precise measuring instrument will give nearly the same result each time that it is used. Accuracy – How close a measurement is to the accepted value –For example, a balance loaded with a standard 100 g weight should read 100 g. If it doesn’t, then the balance is inaccurate. Precision measuring tools are needed for accuracy

3 Steel Rule Micrometer Tools for Precision Measuring

4 Digital Caliper Dial Caliper Tools for Precision Measuring

5 The dial caliper isa precision measuring instrument. The caliper’s blade graduations are in inches and tenths (.1) of an inch. Reading a Dial Caliper inch Each inch is broken into ten, for.1 of an inch. {

6 The caliper’s dial graduations are in thousandths (.001) of an inch. The reference edge keeps track of larger increments; the dial is for smaller increments. Reading a Dial Caliper

7 One full revolution of the pointer on the dial equals one hundred thousandths (.100).

8 Blade Inside Measuring Faces Outside Measuring Faces Dial Fine Adjustment Screw Dial Clamp Screw Clamp Screw Dial Caliper Parts

9 Step 1 Read inches from the blade 1 in. – 6 in. 2 Reading a Dial Caliper

10 Step 2 Read tenths of an inch from the blade Reading a Dial Caliper 1 in. – 6 in..0 in. -.9 in. 2 3

11 Step 3Read thousandths of an inch from the dial Reading a Dial Caliper 1 in. – 6 in..0 in.-.9 in..001 in in

12 Dial Calipers Measure Thickness or Outside Diameter
