Small Measurement Tools

A measuring tool is anything used to take a count of quantitative data, such as weight, length, time or temperature. A small measurement tool is used to measure something so small that it would seem impossible to grade. For example, a dial bore gauge is a special tool, which can measure in .001 inch (.0025 centimeter). Most common small measuring tools are bore gauges and bore micrometers. When buying something that demands such accuracy of such small measurements, it’s important to always buy high quality as low quality can lead to faulty measurements. Small measurement tools are used by the fields of aerospace, metrology, automotive, electronics, industrial or medical applications.

  1. Bore Gauges
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    A bore gauge is used to accurately to obtain measurements on cylinders and pipes. The measurements achieved include size, wear, taper and the roundness or ovalness of a hole. The bore gauge is best used for obtaining small measurements, with some bore gauges achieving measurements of 001 inch (.0025 centimetre).

  2. Bore Micrometers
    - 2 Suppliers 5 Products

    Bore micrometers are used to obtain small measurements in cylinders and pipes. They often work with bore gauges and are known for their accuracy in obtaining really small measurements. Micrometers are available in different measurements including 100, 120, 160, 200, and 250 gauge bores.

  3. Calibration Fixtures
    - 3 Suppliers 66 Products

    Calibration fixtures are for holding, clamping and checking the accuracy of the calibration machine by checking the positioning accuracy of machine tools and measuring the accuracy of coordinating measuring machines. It’s important that high-quality calibration fixtures are used that do not negatively impact the calibration procedure.

  4. Caliper Gauges
    - 2 Suppliers 10 Products

    Caliper gauges are used to gauge the inside or outside size of an object. They work by measuring the distance between two opposite sides of an object. The tips of the caliper are adjusted to fit across the points to be measured and the measurements are displayed digitally or in analogue format.

  5. Calipers
    - 2 Suppliers 30 Products

    Calipers are used to gauge the inside or outside size of an object. They work by measuring the distance between two opposite sides of an object. The tips of the caliper are adjusted to fit across the points to be measured and the measurements are displayed digitally or in analogue format.

  6. Depth Gauges
    - 2 Suppliers 93 Products

    Depth Gauges are used to measure the depth of openings, grooves, recesses. Common depth calibrations include 0 to 200 or 320 mm and calibrations of 0.05 mm. Depth guages are usually hand-held tools employed in the fields of mechanical engineering, metalworking, forestry, woodworking, science, and medicine.

  7. Depth Micrometers
    - 1 Supplier 2 Products

    Depth micrometers are used to measure the depth of holes, slots, counterbores and recesses. In the manual depth micrometer, this is done by turning a ratchet until it reaches the bottom of the hole. Each depth micrometer comes with interchangeable rods that allow for the measurement of different hole shapes and sizes.

  8. Dial Snap Gauges
    - 0 Suppliers 1 Product

    Snap gauges form part of the Go-No gauging equipment. The name derives from the fact that a workpiece is tested, passing one test (Go) and failing another (No Go). A snap gauge can be set with temporary measurements, or created with set measurements which determine if a specimen is Go or No Go.

  9. Engineers' Squares
    - 1 Supplier 1 Product

    Engineers’’ squares are made of two parts of steel set at 90°. They are used by Engineers (and other professionals) for making and measuring and checking for the squareness of a workpiece. Squares tools which have similar functions include combination square, try squares, machinist square, set square, steel square, try squares and speed square.

  10. Feeler Gauges
    - 1 Supplier 2 Products

    A feeler gauge is used to measure gap widths or clearance between two parts. Feel gauges is a tool of several lengths of steel, often known as leaves. The feelers can then be plugged into gaps to measure the width.

  11. Flats and Parallels
    - 1 Supplier 21 Products

    Flats and parallels are a simple and effective way of checking the flatness of reflective surfaces, used in fields of mechanical engineering, metalworking, science and medicine. They are operated by placing the optical parallel into an anvil and observing the number of interference fringes produced on the spindle side.

  12. Gauge Blocks
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Gauge blocks are a collection of blocks made from metal or ceramic which provide a standardised measurement for used in calibration of measuring equipment. Each block can be joined together (known as wining) to create over 1000 possible length combinations.

  13. Granite Surface Plates
    - 0 Suppliers 1 Product

    Granite surface plates are granite flat plates used in the manufacturing industry for precision inspection, marking out and laying, and tooling. Granite is preferred by the industry over steel due to its ability to produce accurate results even when chipped or damaged.
