The first thing that you have to know is that there is not exactly accurate measurement. Error is anywhere. As a human, we cannot realize the hidden error that is caused by the environment and also the internal system of the measuring instrument. Because we cannot spot the error, it’s reasonable we doubt the reading. … Read moreUncertainty in Measurement
Traceability in measurement or measurement traceability is the condition where no links are missing to the real agreed reference standard. The real agreed reference standard means a particular reference that the nations over the world agree to establish it as standard. For example, the nations over the world establish the path traveled by light in … Read moreWhat is Measurement Traceability?
Parallelism and flatness are two terms in measurement that contribute to the accuracy of your precision instrument. Especially when working with a micrometer, the flatness and the parallelism takes an important role to generate a reliable measurement. But what are actually parallelism and flatness? These two words seem to be similar to hear. But they … Read moreParallelism Vs. Flatness
Because of its capability in providing accurate measurement, many work fields rely on the micrometer. It is widely used in metalworking, machinery, mechanical engineering, laboratory, home use, engine building, hobby (cartridge reloading), etc., all the things that need high accuracy. It measures thickness, inside diameter, outside diameter, length, and depth. There is actually a wide … Read moreWhat is A Micrometer Used for?

You may have heard that a particular precision measuring tool has a certain tolerance number, for example, ±0.001mm like the Mitutoyo Micrometer 293-340 series have. You can find it as well on the other precision tools. What is it actually? Tolerance can be defined as the total allowable amount by which a measurement may vary. … Read moreTolerance in Measurement
It was the 19th century when a scientist James Clerk Maxwell put forwarded the concept of a consistent system where the fundamental small units were the base and the rest were derived from them. This coherent system was the metric system with almost all of the dimensions either based or derived from the ratios of … Read moreMetric Unit System
A micrometer is a precision tool that really needs proper maintenance. Not only does it to sustain its durability, but also it’s important to keep the micrometer accurate. Most micrometers nowadays have been created in such a way to give a long durable use, still, improper use and maintenance can fasten the damage. Here we … Read moreMicrometer Maintenance Guide
Imperial units have their origin from the time of Romans in the middle ages. The units used evolved since then and their values changed with time until Britain recognized it as a system. The imperial unit system was formally established under the Weights and Measures Act of 1824 and the Act of 1878. The definition … Read moreImperial Unit System
