Maximizing Accuracy in Microinch Measurement

Oct. 9, 2020
This paper discusses practices found effective for maximizing accuracy when measuring at small values.

Millionths of an inch (0.025 micron) measurement requires special methods and equipment. This paper will discuss considerations and practices we have found effective for maximizing accuracy in microinch measurement. Topics covered will include temperature, contamination, penetration, alignment, vibration, wear, looseness, the operator, and equipment.
