A branch of science which deals in the relationship between force, matter, energy and motion.
A person/worker who operate and maintain machines & tools is known as Mechanic.
Mechanical Instruments and Types:
A mechanic or worker that operate and maintain machines needs some special mechanical tools to calculate and measure the sizes of different objects, they mostly require precise tools, gauges and calipers that give them a benefit to easily justify the measurement. Here is a list of different mechanical tools that are used in different purposes:
· What is Caliper?
Caliper is one of the checking instrument which is used for measuring length, width and height of a box and any part. Basically, it is used as a measuring instrument in labs and industries for checking internal and external dimensions and sizes.
A. Vernier Caliper
A Vernier Caliper is an engineering device or precision tool used for measuring small distance with highly accuracy. It can further used for measuring height, width and depth of a plane surface. It’s a manual device which can be easily used by a person to get readings of the object.
B. Inside Caliper
Inside caliper is one of the checking instrument that is used for the internal dimensions of a part. It is made of a metal having two legs, at the end of each leg have measuring face. It is mostly used for taking readings of inner diameters.
C. Outside Caliper
Outside caliper is also an engineering instrument mostly used for measuring outside diameters with high accuracy. Made of stainless steel having two curve legs and measuring faces on the end from which a mechanic can easily find the actual reading of a part.
D. Divider Caliper
Divider caliper is a mechanical compass that is used for making arcs and circle on a metal sheet. The edges of legs are sharp and can easily adjustable. It is used for small distance with high accuracy. A person can use it by pointing its one leg on a single side and other can adjust according to the need.
E. Odd-leg Caliper
Odd-leg caliper is made of low carbon steel with one straight leg and other one is bent. Enables to mark lines on round pieces, one leg has an adjustable point and other is for marking on pieces.
F. Digital Caliper
Digital caliper is a replacement of analog and manual caliper which is now used all across globe to measure dimensions in inches and millimeters. The body of digital caliper is made of stainless steel and can easily and quick finder of the value of a piece.
G. Dial Caliper
After Vernier caliper, this one is used for more precise work. Dial caliper can easily find the least value of the object. It has same Vernier scale and a dial having pointer in it which is used for the precise value of an object.
H. Micrometer Caliper
Micrometer caliper is also known as micrometer having a round rod which is located with measuring screw. This instrument is used for precise readings like thickness of a curve surface.
