Basic Measurement Tools and Techniques

Dimensional measurements of characteristics such as length, width, depth, diameter, or height are fundamental to manufacturing physical products in all industry segments. Reliable dimensional measurements can help to improve product quality and increase productivity while reducing overall manufacturing costs.

Our On-Site Seminar, Basic Measurement Tools and Techniques, provides participants with hands-on training and in-depth information on how to:


Properly Select, Use, and Care for
Dimensional Measurement Equipment
Perform Actual Measurements of Physical
Characteristics using Commonly Available
Equipment
Understand and Identify the Sources and
Types of Measurement Errors
Measure and Record Results in Inch or
Metric Units for direct Comparisons to
Actual Requirements
Identify and Understand Equipment
Calibration Status to Ensure the Validity
of Measurements

The Seminar is designed for presentation to a mixed audience of Engineering, Manufacturing, and Quality Department personnel. The program can be customized to meet the specific needs of:


Engineering, Manufacturing, or Quality
Managers
Production Supervisors, Setup Personnel,
Machine Operators, or Assemblers
Quality Engineers, Gage Designers, or
Inspectors
Design, Manufacturing or Production
Engineers
Part Programmers or Fixture Designers

Basic Measurement Tools and Techniques consists of eight instructional units and requires approximately 12 to 16 hours for presentation.

Participants receive a Learner Handbook, a Learner Workbook, and additional materials. Various presentation schedules are available to meet your specific requirements.
