The hardware manufacturing industry produces a wide range of products that are used in various applications across the board. Accuracy and precision are vital parameters that must be followed for efficient tools that cater to the industrial requirements. This is why the tools that are manufactured are measured for high levels of precision to ensure that they are valuable in the industry. The manufacturing process is also monitored by quality control protocols for ensuring the best quality products. There is an entire series of metrology equipments in the market for measuring lengths, diameters, and surface finish.
Thread measurement is important part of any thread component. Checking its pitch, dimensions, angle, diameter, etc is done using various measuring tools. To measure pitch diameter of thread, the thread micrometer is used, and it is fitted with conical anvil and a vee. Another way it can be measured is by using thread wire sets and standard flat face micrometer. The thread gauges are used for checking whether the thread dimensions fall within dimensional limits. It is grounded and hardened to accurate dimensions which meet the specification for required standards.
There are two types of gauges that are used for checking the dimensions. The thread plug gauges are used for checking internal threads while the thread ring gauges are used for checking external threads. Every gauge has two fundamental parts like GO gauge and NO GO gauge and for effective and accurate measurement both parts should be utilized accordingly. For the thread to be well within the permissible dimensions, the GO plug gauge must screw into internal thread and the NO GO must not screw into it. The gauges are available for various sizes and forms including 60 degree form, 50 degree form, and acme form.
