A digital caliper is a precision instrument used to take very accurate measurements.The caliper is easy to use with a digital display.Most are able to measure up to 0.01 mm (0.0005 inches).It is among the common tools for measuring external and internal length and also to measure internal diameter, external diameter and depth.Longer calibers up to 2,000mm are designed for the heavy industry.
What is a Caliper
Many industrial processes as well as a variety of scientific studies need accurate measurements - including at the level of one hundredth of a millimeter.
One of the devices used for this is a caliber.More than 150 years ago, a similar tool was developed in the United States, and the principles by which it operates were known in ancient Greece. In addition, this sophisticated device is associated with a 16th-century French mathematician named Pierre Vernier, so the term vernier caliper is common.
What is the difference between a digital and an Analog Caliber?
The main division of the calibers is into analog and digital. Usually working with the digital caliber is considered more convenient, because of the display in numbers. At the same time, there are also professionals who prefer analog calibers.
Uses for Digital Calipers
