Basic Machine Technology: The Use of Measuring Tools
Basic Machine Technology: The Use of Measuring Tools is part three of the Basic Machine Technology 10-part training series.
Measurements are designated by such terms as diameter, width, and depth; these readings can be taken on the inside or outside of an object. Since the naked eye is not very useful (or precise) for measurement, there are other measuring tools available to machinists. This course will show students the importance of measurement in machine technology as well as various measuring tools and their proper uses.
The course covers:
- Linear measures
- Basic measuring tools
- Steel and augmented steel rules
- Vernier and universal Vernier calipers
- Micrometer calipers
- Dial indicators and digital readouts.
