Vernier Caliper: Depth, Step, Inside & Outside Measurement of Object

outer measurementTaking Outside Measurements Using a Vernier Caliper: Vernier calipers are generally utilized to take measurements outside of an object for example small widths, lengths or diameters. This distance is worked out by utilizing the outer measuring sides of the Vernier caliper i.e. the lower jaws.

Step 1 – Tighten Lower Jaws Of Vernier Caliper At Object’s Edges

Grip the item that you opt to measure and fix & tighten the lower jaws at objects edges by sufficiently scrolling the thumb screw.

Step 2 – Make Sure Item Is Fixed Straight In Jaws

Make certain that the item whose dimension being measured is fixed straight in the jaws with the area being measured such that the remaining body of the caliper is parallel to the object being measured.

Step 3 – Scroll Screw to Lock

Rotate the screw to the lock the jaws and loosen the object such that if you remove item there won’t be any issue because the jaws have taken the readings and are fixed. Now you can easily read the dimension in relax mode.

Step 4 – Read Measured Value

Read the measured value and record it in your worksheet for that object.

How To Measure The Length of Cylinder Using a Vernier Caliper?

Measurement of Object’s Steps With A Vernier Caliper: The combination of left side head of the Vernier caliper and the face of the upper jaw at right hand are normally employed to read step measurements.

Step 1 – Rest Sliding Jaw Opposing Upper Step Of Item

Release the caliper gradually. Rest the sliding jaw opposing upper step of the item being measured. Ensure that the left side head of the caliper is at 90 degrees to the edge of the upper step.

Step 2 – Release Caliper Jaws

Release the jaws of the vernier caliper by scrolling thumb screw till the right upper jaw touches the lower step.

Step 3 – Scroll Screw to Lock

Rotate the lock screw to make the jaws fixed and take away the item and measure reading of object.

Step 4 – Record Measured Value

Record the measured value in the worksheet of object’s step.

depth measurementMeasurement of depth with the help of a Vernier caliper: Deepness can be measured by placing the depth gauge at the surface of container you want to measure. While you increase the jaws with thumb screw, the depth gauge will touch the deep surface .

Step 1 – Rotate Thumb Screw to Make Longer Depth Gauge

Rotate the thumb screw steadily till the last part of the end of the beam scale comes in touch with the upper facade of the depth area.

Step 2 – Place Depth Gauge in Hole

Place the depth gauge so  it touches with base of the hole or interior base of the space or cavity.

Step 3 – Scroll Screw to Lock

Rotate the screw to lock the jaws in order to take out your the object and reading the measurements.

Step 4 – Record Measured Value

Note down the measured value & record it in the work sheet you have made for measuring depth of the object.

inner measurement vernier caliper How To Take Inner Measurements Using A Vernier Caliper: Inner measurements for example the diameter of a pipe is measured with the upper jaws of the vernier caliper.

Step 1 – Make Sure the Caliper Is At Zero

Shut the jaws totally so that the caliper displays zero reading. Place the upper jaws into the hole you wish to measure.

Step 2 – Release Internal Jaws

Release the internal jaws by rotating thumb screw till the outer of each jaw connects the boundaries of the gap.

Step 3 – Rotate Screw to Lock Jaws

Rotate the screws to fix the jaws in order to remove your item and take down the reading.

Step 4 – Record Measured Value

Record measured values in the work sheet of inner measurements using a Vernier Caliper.
