Metrology lab manual. Expt. No 01 CALIBRATION OF MICROMETER Theory:

2

Write brief theory about slip gauges; classification, specification, uses and care to be taken before and after using. A micrometer is used to measure the external diameter of small cylinders, sphere etc. It has a V shaped structure to which a handle is attached. Two anvils are fixed to the inner surface of the block. The job to be measured is placed between the anvils and held in position by rotating the handle. The end of the screw forms one measuring tip and the other measuring tip is constituted by a stationary anvil in the base of the frame. The screw is threaded for certain distance and plain for the remaining distance. The screws plain portion is called sleeve and its end is the measuring surface.

Procedure:1. Find out the least count of the given instrument. 2. Clean the micrometer stand so that there are no burrs on the anvils. Clean the measuring faces of micrometer with a cleaning cloth. 3. Fix the micrometer to the stand horizontally, to avoid manual errors during handling. 4. Check for zero errors of micrometer by closing the micrometer to 0 and note down the zero error, if any (ex.: -0.01mm or + 0.01mm) 5. The selected (values) standard step gauges are taken and cleaned with a cloth and arranged in such a way that there would be no gap (wringing phenomenon) and placed between the anvils. 6. The readings shown by the micrometer are noted and compared with the actual reading of slip gauges. 7. Error and percentage error are calculated results and calculations are tabulated in the tabular column. 8. The experiment is repeated for different readings of slip gauges (minimum 10 readings). Note: Always complete the entire range of the instrument by selecting appropriate values unless specified

CALIBRATION OF CALIPERS Procedure: 1. The least count of the instrument is calculated 2. Standard slip gauges of known values are taken cleaned properly and arranged in such a way that these should be no air gap between them. 3. The micrometer readings are noted and compared with actual results. 4. Reading are tabulated in the tabular column 5. Procedure is repeated for different values gauges.

Metrology lab manual. Exp. No: 03 CALIBRATION OF DIAL GAUGE AIM: - Calibration of dial gauge using dial indicator. Apparatus: - Dial gauge, dial calibration tester.

Theory:- Dial indicators are instruments used for making and checking linear measurements. These require less skill than other precision instruments for their usage, like plug gauges, gap gauges, micrometers and Vernier scales etc. Dial indicators are smaller indicating devices containing a graduated dial lever magnification system. These are generally used as comparators is compare a part to a master setting. Some indicators known as dial micrometers or dial thickness gauge are however, also used for actual measurements when dial indicator is used as an essential part in the mechanism of any set up for compassion measurement purposes it is referred to as dial gauge. Most of the dial indicators take the form of a circular or semicircular scale upon which a pointer fives a direct indication of the movements of a contact arm or a spindle small changes of dimensions of the component in contact with the spindle are made to assume large proportions to scale by employing some mechanical reading to be obtained. A dial indicator by it self is not of much use unless it is properly mounted and set before using for inspection purpose. By mounting a dial Indicator on any suitable base and with various attachments it can be used on thousands of special gauges which manufacturers them selves design to meet the requirement of the job. Procedure: 1. The L.C of the dial indicator is calculated 2. The L.C of calibration tester is calculated. 3. Rotate the dial tester circular disc to touch the points of contact of dial indicators & lock the spindle. 4. Now loosen the 3 screws under the disc of dial tester and make the disc reading zero and again tighter the screws. 5. Now make the reading of dial indicator zero. 6. Fix the pointer to some specified reading and take the disc reading. 7. Rotate the disc for 10mm displacement and take the disc reading.

The instrument error is noted from the chart and total error is calculated.

Experiment No 4 CHECKING OF STRAIGHT EDGES BY WEDGE METHOD

Aim: To check the straightness of the straight edge by wedge method. Apparatus : Straight edge with blade width not less then 6mm, surface plate to accommodate the straight edge, slip gauges, dial indicator, support blocks. Theory Straight edges: These are used for checking the straightens and flatness of parts in conjunctions with the surface plates, spirit levels and the flatness of a surface background or by a light coat of prussian blue on the work surface. These may be made of steel or cast iron. Steel straight edges are available up to 2 m length and may be rectangular in section with beveled edge. C. I straight edges, are made up to 3 m length and widely used for testing machine tool slide ways. They are heavily ribbed and bowshaped (camel back construction) to prevent distortion. These are provided with feet for rest when they are idle to pr
