The Standard Gauge caliper-type depth gauge has a measurement range of 0 to 6", 0 to 8", or 0 to 12" and a resolution (or smallest graduation interval) of 0.001". Gauges are accurate to +/-0.02mm or 0.03mm. It includes a removable bridge for increased measurement capacity. The gauge has 0.100" travel per revolution, shown on a white dial face, and it comes in a fitted case. This caliper-type depth gauge is suitable for precise measurement in a variety of manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering applications.
Depth gauges are precision measuring instruments used to determine the depth of any shape that has a step, groove, or slot. These gauges often take the form of sliders that travel on a measuring beam or rods, are moved to position by hand, and then adjusted with a calibrated screw. The base of the gauge rests at the top of the shape whose recession is to be measured, while the beam or rods extend to the bottom of the recession to determine the measurement. Gauge position is read from a graduated scale, dial, counters, or an electronic display.
Standard Gage manufactures precision measuring equipment and metrology hand tools. The company is headquartered in North Kingstown, RI.
