Apply precision measuring instruments.

Definition

Applying precision instruments in the machining industry (e.g., determining the concentricity of a turned part to a lathe's spindle, inspecting dimensions of a finished part) should include determining the compliance of a part of selected dimensions by using the following:
  • Micrometer
  • Vernier
  • Dial and electronic calipers
  • Dial indicators
  • Precision transfer tools
    • telescoping gauges
    • adjustable parallels

Process/Skill Questions

  • What are the names of precision transfer tools?
  • What is the difference, when transferring dimension, of using a basic as opposed to a precision measuring tool?
  • What does a precision measuring tool measure more accurately?
