### Mee344 Metrology Lab 1

1. 1. METROLOGY
2. 2. “ When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it: but when you cannot measure it, when your cannot express it in numbers your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind;…” Lord Kelvin, 1883
3. 3. Metrology  Metrology is “The science of measurement” Used to communicate about : Size Quantity Position Time Etc.
4. 4. Why Measure If you can’t measure it: You can’t make it If you can’t measure it: You can’t control it You can’t manage it You can’t improve it
5. 5. Measurement Errors All Dimensional Measurements = Actual Size +/- Errors Measurement errors must be controlled Error = The difference between the actual size and the measured size
6. 6. Sources of Measurement Errors  Part  Operator  Instruments  Standard  Environment
7. 7. Ten-To-One Rule If Part Tolerance = 0.01” Then Gage Discrimination =0.001”
8. 8. Calipers – The Original Transfer Instruments
9. 9. Types of Calipers Simple Caliper Instruments
10. 10. Types of Calipers
11. 11. Line of Measurement- Outside Caliper
12. 12. Line of Measurement- Outside Caliper
13. 13. Line of Measurement - Inside Caliper
14. 14. The Combination Square  This is one of the most useful of the steel rule variations. It is rarely used in any kind of production inspection. However, it is used universally in tool and die making, pattern making, model and prototype work, and for machine setup.
15. 15. The Combination Square  The combination square consists of a blade and a square head. The most popular is 4 inches long.
16. 16. Square Head 1. It provides a right angle reference 2. It provides a means for transferring either the measured point or the reference point for the work to the rule.
17. 17. Square Head Depth Measurement
18. 18. Protractor Head  It provides a convenient means for checking angles no closer than 1°. Its chief advantages are convenience and rugged construction.
19. 19. Center Head  In contrast to the steel rule method for measuring diameters, the center head method is far more reliable.
20. 20. Center Head For layout purposes the center head provides on of the most satisfactory methods for finding the centers of shafts.
21. 21. Vernier Caliper
