 Metrology Laboratory



Dimensions play a vital role in the manufacturing of a component. A product quality is assured on the basis of mechanical properties as well as its accurate dimensions. This is possible by the precise measuring instruments. Various measuring tools are used in industry to obtain the dimensional accuracy of a component. In this laboratory students will obtain the knowledge of usage of various measuring instruments with hands on experience. Ring, Plug and bore gauges are used in mass production to improve the quality assurance with less effort and time. Angular measurements are made with bevel protractor and sine bar. Screw and gear features are measured with floating carriage micrometer and gear tooth calipers. Toolmakers microscope and profile projector are used to obtain precise measurements of irregular surfaces too. All these techniques will be learned in this laboratory Total cost: 4,90,844
