Q1: What is a vernier height gauge?
A1: The vernier height gauge is used to measure vertical dimension from the reference ground. Vernier Height Gauge consists of a graduated scale or bar held in a vertical position by a finely ground fixed base.
Q2: What is the advantage of the vernier height gauge?
A2: Relatively simple to operate, their main advantage over other height gauges is the range of sizes they come in, meaning they can be used to measure a wide range of workpieces accurately. Typically, two scales are shown on the beam of the height gauge.
Q3: What is the vernier height gauge used for?
A3: Vernier height gauges are used in metrology and metalworking to detect or measure vertical distances. The height gauges are often used to measure a granite surface or scribe part features from a datum plane. To detect the measured feature, a scriber, test indication, touch probe, or CMM-style probe is often utilized.
Tips: What is the difference between a height gauge and a vernier caliper?
Height gauges and depth gauges can be considered relatives of hand calipers. When combined with a dial gauge, a height gauge can be used to measure height. Depth gauges, meanwhile, are used to measure level differences. A CMM that's as easy to use as calipers.
