Metalworking Inspection and Measurement Equipment
Those that work with or around metalworking projects know that it is important to have standard or digital gauges that will measure and inspect objects. Before you decide on which type of equipment you do, it’s best to do a little research. Know what are you getting before you bring it home. Having the right equipment always makes a job run more smoothly, and lets you get the job done and on your way faster.Micrometres
If you are looking for a great tool to take precise and exact measurements, a micrometre is the device for you. There are several different models available ensuring there is one that will fit your needs. For those working with tubes or pipes, a tube micrometre is a good fit because the angle of the unit is curved which allows for a single point of contact with the object. A V-anvil micrometre measures the outside diameter of cutting heads.Vernier Caliper
Use a vernier calliper to measure the distance between two sides of an object. The jaws open to the precise distance you need, and the ruler portion of the tool tells you the distance. To take the guesswork out of the equation, go with a digital vernier caliper that displays the results. Get the most out of your tool by purchasing one that includes base measuring functions for inside, outside, step, and depth measurements.Inclinometer
When it comes to measuring angles of slope, elevation or depression of an object an inclinometer is the go-to tool. The key to getting an exact measurement is being able to read the results so look for products that offer large numbers that are easy to read.Inspection Camera
To see what is happening inside an object an inspection camera is the clear choice. Features to look for include a Micro SD card slot, USB port, waterproof capacity, and an easy to see colour TFT-LCD screen. What’s more, the camera should be able to play back, record video, and take photos.
