Q1: What is a vernier caliper?
A1: Vernier caliper is a measuring tool for measuring length, inner and outer diameters, and depth. The vernier caliper is composed of two parts, the main ruler and the sliding vernier attached to the main ruler. The depth rod is connected to the vernier to measure the depth of the groove and cylinder.
Q2: What are vernier calipers used for?
A2: As a commonly used measuring tool, sisco vernier calipers can be specifically applied in the following four aspects:
- Measure the width
- Measuring the outer diameter
- Measuring the inner diameter
- Measure the depth
Q3: How does a vernier caliper work?
A3: Mechanical vernier caliper is a commonly used instrument for measuring length in the industry. It consists of a ruler body and a vernier that can slide on the caliper body. Viewed from the back, the cursor is a whole. There is a spring piece between the vernier and the caliper body, and the spring force of the spring piece is used to make the vernier and the caliper body close. There is a fastening screw on the upper part of the vernier, which can fix the vernier at any position on the body of the caliper.
Tips: Carbon Steel vs. Plastic Vernier Caliper
Vernier calipers are available in carbon steel and plastic. If the use environment is highly corrosive to steel, then use a plastic vernier caliper. If the use environment is good, it is recommended to use carbon steel vernier calipers.
