In the world of machining, accuracy is paramount. Workpieces must be manufactured with the highest precision in order to ultimately deliver a flawless result to the customer. This is where measurement equipment comes into play.
The general definition of the term measuring equipment: It refers to methods and systems for measuring quantities such as length, mass, force, pressure or electric current. Also known are measuring devices from measurement technology according to DIN 1319-2 under the term measuring equipment. Measuring instruments illustrate the measured values by means of scales or digital displays.
In industry, protractors, dial gauges, tension gauges and calipers are used in particular. In machining production, there are numerous applications that require the use of precise testing instruments, for example the measurement of clamping and retracting force or the measurement of workpieces by means of a test pin.
