Precision measurement tools are an essential part of many trades, such as tool and die making, precision aerospace machining, and injection mold making. Without these tools, the manufacture of many items we rely on in our daily lives would not be possible.
The Importance of Precision Measurement Tools
These tools are frequently used in CNC machining operations, medical or micro-machining shops, and other precision manufacturing facilities.
Take a moment to look around you. You’ll likely find many items that were produced using precision measurement tools, such as your computer monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Even seemingly mundane objects like your desk, chair, and light switch required precise measurements during their manufacture.
Some common precision measurement tools include:
- Precision micrometers
- Dial indicators
- Coordinate measuring machines
- Optical comparators
- Granite surface plates
- Pin gauges
- Gage blocks
The Importance of Precision Tolerances in Toolmaking
In precision toolmaking, it is common to work within a tolerance of 0.0002 in./0.005 mm. To put this in perspective, imagine splitting a cigarette paper in half twice. The resulting piece would be about 0.0002 in. thick – a tiny measurement when dealing with large blocks of hardened steel.
How Precision Measurement Tools Ensure High-Quality Manufacturing
Overall, precision measurement tools play a critical role in ensuring the quality and accuracy of manufactured items. By using these tools to maintain tight tolerances and control dimensions, manufacturers can produce high-quality products that meet exacting standards.
