The dimensional metrology practice kit is designed for practical training in the metalworking trades and follows the tried and proven concept of the Bundesinstitut für Berufsbildung (BIBB; Federal Institute for Vocational Training). The kit offers the advantage of being ready for use immediately; it contains everything required for the exercises. The test pieces used are flat stainless steel spacer plates. They were manufactured with the accuracy of CNC parts. The kit includes ten spacer plates, all of which differ to a minor degree in length and each of which is individually marked. All parts are clearly laid out and well protected on a moulded plastic tray. The trays are stackable, providing for space-saving storage.
Learning Objectives / Experiments
- Familiarisation with steel ruler and vernier caliper gauge - Measurement of pre-determined lengths: + with the steel ruler and an auxiliary stop + with the vernier caliper gauge - Keeping a measurement log - Estimating measurement variations - Identifying typical errors
* Tried and tested dimensional metrology exercises1 * Instructional kit with test aids and 10 test pieces1 * Comprehensive and well-structured instructional material
