The imperial unit system was formally established under the Weights and Measures Act of 1824 and the Act of 1878. The definition … Read more Imperial Unit System

## Mechanical vs. Digital Micrometer

Micrometers can be classified based on how it works: mechanical, digital, and dial. Each division has different components and working principle inside of its body, however, the purpose remain the same to provide a magnified measurement. These different working principles also affect the way the micrometer display the reading. Further, it can be 4 classifications: … Read more Mechanical vs. Digital Micrometer

## How A Dial Meter Works

Dial meter is an indicator that is used in many measuring instruments such as micrometer and caliper. It functions to magnify the measurement and shows the reading in a good resolution. The working of the dial meter depends on the shape of the dial and the working principle used in the dial micrometer. It has … Read more How A Dial Meter Works

## What is the Least Count of Micrometer?

Micrometer’s least count means the smallest increment figure that the micrometer’s scale provides. It’s also the smallest thickness or length that can be measured. For example 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, these row of numbers has 1 increment figure. Another example, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, … Read more What is the Least Count of Micrometer?

## What is Vernier Scale?

Suppose you are measuring with a caliper, then you suddenly get quite confused. You ask, “Why must the aligned line that gets counted on the vernier scale? How that could be?” If you are in a situation like this, this is a good chance to learn it. Vernier scale is the secondary scale that is … Read more What is Vernier Scale?

## What is Carbide-Tipped Anvil?

You may have heard “carbide-tipped anvil” several times when searching for micrometers especially when reading the detail product information. Also, you might realize that all the recommended micrometers for reloading we advise are carbide tipped on the measuring faces as well. For you who don’t know about it; you might more often hear steel, then … Read more What is Carbide-Tipped Anvil?
