27 Feb 2023 How to Use a Height Gauge?
A Height Gauge measures the height of a workpiece, it is a measuring instrument in which a slider with a measuring stylus moves relative to a measuring scale on a beam, and in which this motion is along a single vertical axis nominally perpendicular to a reference plane on the instrument base. Height gauges are normally used on a granite surface plate to measure and/or scribe part features from a datum plane. Generally, a scriber, Dial test indicator, and Dial indicator are used to locate the measured feature. Height gauges are an indispensable instrument for quality control.
