 Examples Of Precision Measuring Tools We Can Provide

Vernier Caliper

This is a precision measuring tool that is used to measure small distances with high accuracy. It consists of two jaws, one fixed and one movable, and a scale with both metric and imperial units. The vernier caliper is commonly used in engineering, metalworking, and woodworking.


Also known as a screw gauge, this is a precision instrument used for measuring small distances with high accuracy. It uses a calibrated screw mechanism and comes in various types such as outside, inside, and depth micrometers. Micrometers are commonly used in manufacturing industries.

Dial Indicator

This is a mechanical device that measures small linear distances and forces. It consists of a needle that moves along a scale, allowing for accurate measurements to be taken. Dial indicators are commonly used in the automotive and aerospace industries.

Optical Comparator

This is an instrument used for comparing the dimensions of a workpiece with its blueprint. It uses optics and a projection screen to magnify and display the image of the workpiece, allowing for precise measurements to be taken. Optical comparators are commonly used in quality control and inspection.

CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine)

This is a computer-controlled precision measuring tool that uses a probe to measure the dimensions of a workpiece in three-dimensional space. It is highly accurate and can capture even complex shapes and contours. CMMs are commonly used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical.

Height Gauge

Also known as a height micrometer or altimeter, this is a precision instrument used for measuring the vertical distance between two points. It consists of a base, column, and an adjustable vertical scale. Height gauges are commonly used in metalworking and woodworking.

Bore Gauge

This is a precision tool used for measuring the internal diameter of holes or cylindrical objects. It consists of a handle, an extending rod with a contact point, and a scale to display measurements. Bore gauges are commonly used in manufacturing industries.

Thread Gauge

Also known as pitch gauge, this is a precision tool used for measuring the pitch or spacing of threads on screws, bolts, and nuts. It consists of a set of threads with different pitches that can be matched to the workpiece for accurate measurements. Thread gauges are commonly used in industries such as automotive and machinery.

Feeler Gauge

This is a thin strip of metal with various thicknesses used for measuring gap widths or clearances between parts. It is commonly used in automotive and machinery industries for precise adjustments.


This is a precision instrument used for measuring angles with high accuracy. It consists of a half-circle or full-circle scale and an arm with a pointer that can be rotated to measure angles. Protractors are commonly used in metalworking, woodworking, and engineering applications.
