Production Machining has a new Inspection and Measurement zone. It includes articles, new products, videos, and blog posts related to inspection and measurement equipment and processes that have been published in PM. Also, find contact information from equipment suppliers on this page.

Inspection and measuring equipment includes all of the tools and devices that are used to verify that a part’s dimensions all conform to the tolerances required by the part’s design. This includes various hand-held gages such as calipers and micrometers, as well as simpler gage blocks or plug gages.

However, inspection and measurement in most shops also goes beyond hand-held gages to include coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), the measurement machine tools able to execute programmed measurement routines. Also included in this category are devices such as profilometers that measure the finish of machined surfaces.
