Repeatability in Measurement

Repeatability is a term in metrology that is an important aspect to consider when you are going to use a certain measuring tool if you demand a high degree of precision. It also indicates the quality of measurement provided by your tool. What is Repeatability? Simply, repeatability is a condition of how consistent the measuring … Read more

How to Use Dial Indicator

One thing you have to always keep in mind when using a dial indicator is the angle that it shapes to the surface must be 90°. In other words, the plunger and the surface being measured must be perpendicular. This angle is important in order to obtain correct measurement results and prevent cosine error. Though … Read more

What is Stainless Steel?

Any of us have been familiar with “stainless steel”. There are countless tools made of stainless steel such as measuring tools, kitchen equipment, automotive parts, cutting tools, etc. However, do you really recognize it? Why when it comes to corrosion-proof tools, people go for items made of this metal? Here we will discover it. What … Read more

ADC (Analog to Digital Converter)

In this page, we are going to learn together what is analog to digital converter. This topic is very important to learn in measuring instrumentation. Most of the microcontroller (though no merely) are able to convert analog to a digital signal. An analog signal can be a voltage signal. While the digital signal can be … Read more

Uncertainty in Measurement

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 more

What is Measurement Traceability?

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 more

Parallelism Vs. Flatness

Parallelism and flatness are two terms in measurement that contribute to the accuracy of your precision instrument. Especially when working with a micrometer, flatness and 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 are actually … Read more
