Virtual Depth Micrometer – Hundredth Millimeter Simulator

How to use the instrument of linear measurement 'depth gauge micrometer' in hundredth millimeter (0.01 mm)

Roll down until the end of the page, drag and drop the thimble of bigger visualization in the vertical to fine aproximation or the thimble of smaller visualization in the horizontal to fast advance.

Use of depth gauge micrometer in millimeter hundredth resolution

In metrology, the micrometer is not able to take depth measurements without association with other devices. The same millimeter thread, and other components, can be used for this purpose. It just needs modifications.

You must be familiarized with the use of the external micrometer. The reading of the depth gauge micrometer follows the same logic. However, it’s necessary, to take some cautions. Interact with the simulator below and see that the line coined the sleeve correspond to the millimeter covered by the thimble. Other detail, is that the increment of hundredths is done in the opposite direction to the obseverved in the micrometer.

Virtual depth gauge micrometer: how to use the instrument of linear measurement ‘depth gauge micrometer’ in millimeter hundredth resolution

To reduce the number of clicks, this simulator has a fast advance. Just drag and drop in the horizontal, the thimble of the smaller visualization. For finer adjustment, drag and drop the thimble of bigger visualization in the vertical.

Observe that the scales are inverted, when compared to the external micrometer.
