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.
What is a Height Gauge?
Height gauges are also known as height vernier calipers. As the name suggests, its main purpose is to measure the height of workpieces, and it is also often used to measure shape and position tolerances, and sometimes to mark lines.
How to Choose a Height Gauge?
A height gauge is an instrument placed on a platform, ideally a granite platform, for single-axis measurements. It is a full-featured measurement system that combines a platform with an altimeter. The full-featured altimeter is mainly used for online or batch testing, and can be measured directly on one or a group of machine tools, especially for workpieces with high size requirements. It is very useful for debugging and sampling inspection during production.
