Re: How to Calibrate a Vernier Caliper - Seeking Detailed procedure
Hello Everyone ,
This is Amol Patil , I was working on the calibration procedure for Vernier Caliper I found the above information very useful. I just had few questions regarding the procedure specified by 'TownDawg' in his post.
1) Do I have to use same gauge block size as specified above only ? Or I can use the combination that is available. For example I have a gauge block set of 516-931 which doesn't have a 4 inch gauge block.
2) How do we capture the inaccuracies on the entire range of the caliper. Does this sample procedure apply for a caliper on 0-6" and 0-24" ?
These question arise from the fact the we only use higher range of the caliper for our measurements , my concern here is how will certify the entire range of caliper ?
Any guidance and suggestions most welcome ..........as its great learning opportinuity for me
