Simulator – Inner Micrometer

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

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 inside micrometer in millimeter hundredth resolution

In the metology, the micrometer is not able to take internal measurements without association with other devices. The same millimeter thread, and other components, can be used for this purpose. Beat some modification. In the workshops the internal micrometer is also known as imicro.

You should already be familiar with the use of the external micrometer. The intermo micrometer reading follows the same engineering. However, some precautions must be taken. Interact with the simulator below and see that the line coined in the hem corresponding to the millimeter is covered by the thimble. Another detail is that the increment of the hundredths is done in the opposite direction to that observed in the micrometer.

The internal micrometer model used in this simulator is a freedom of interpretation. There are some presentations (engineering) of these instruments. Micrometer type caliper, internal micrometer of three contacts and internal micrometer tubular are some examples. However, they all have in common the method for their reading and interpretation.

Virtual Inside Micrometer: how to use the instrument of measurement ‘internal micromenter’ in millimeter with hundredth resolution

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

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