Measuring Devices Undergo CMM Inspection

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Measurement is an important thing that is always considered in everything that people do and create. In baking a cake, proper measurements are needed in order to create a well-balanced tasty treat. With regards to other recipes, precise measurement of spices and ingredients could either create a tasty dish or one that is not appealing at all.

Different machineries also depend on precise measurements in order for them to be able to function well. With a miscalculated pistol added to a car engine; this could result in a major car engine malfunction with its performance. This could very well be risky and could even result to a major accident causing the well-being of a person or even his life.

That is how important precise measurement data is. There are different certifications that are given to different machineries in order to prove that those machines have been well inspected and checked. With a certification attached to the product, machine or service, people would know that they can trust the company or the manufacturer and that they would get precise measurements from their machines.

When it comes to getting CMM certification, a machine should pass the CMM Inspection that would be conducted on it. With this inspection, experts can check on their equipment whether these are reliable or not. They would be able to find out whether the machine that they are inspecting is reliable or not to give precise measurements.

CMM Inspection is the method where the parts of the machinery are checked for any distortion, signs of being worn, or fatigue. The inspection systems are required to check certain parameters of the machines so they would be proven to be well efficient and effective. This is also to make sure that the machines being tested can function and perform their needed measuring task so people can make and create effective machines, products, or even services.

There are different CMM Inspection techniques that are being done by professionals in checking their products. These techniques and methods all differ with regards to the application of the measuring machine that is being tested whether it would be used for aerospace, manufacturing, scientific, defense, and other industries.

Taking the right kind of CMM inspection fitted for the machine’s final purpose would make sure that the machine or device will be ready for its final application and function so the end client would be able to rely on them for their measuring needs.

Using Electronic Measuring Equipment Has Many Benefits

Monday, October 10th, 2016

It is crucial for any industrial and electrical company to monitor important variables like temperature, pressure, vibration, frequency, voltage and current. All of these electrical parameters can be measured using a digital panel meter. Digital meters are different from mechanical meter reading. They are similar to analog panel meter devices but the measurement displays in computerized form. Most of them have a built-in alarm and can be calibrated to read out the desired units. They come with an LED display, which can be customized. The display screens can be different between brands, but most display three to six digits.

It is sensible that manufacturers have a lot of measuring devices to offer to consumers. Users can choose from a variety of products and go for the one that best suits their needs. Different brands can have unique and striking features that set them apart from other brands but are primarily for marketing purposes. These benefits are highlighted to attract more consumers. In reality, all the devices have the same basic functions.
Here, are some benefits that one can get by using electronic measuring equipment.


The panel meter can calculate consumption of electricity with great accuracy and reliability. It is simple to figure out the exact reading because the device provides a computer-generated reading on its screen, it indicates if one is measuring AC or DC, and it shows if the value is positive or negative. A measuring device with needles depends on the user’s competency or personal judgment when reading it. This often results in inaccurate or false readings.

Built-in Protection

These devices also have a built-in overload protector, which cannot be found in their mechanical counterparts. This serves as an added protection against a strong electrical load.

Easy Calibration

Computerized devices are calibrated by exposing them to zero or neutral position. The calibration process can stress the movable parts in non-digital devices, moving them far from the neutral point. This provides inaccurate analysis over time.

Durable and Handy

The measuring devices do not have pointers for reading the values, which makes them less mechanical and easier to maintain. They also come in handy because they can be brought almost anywhere.

Easy Transfer of Data

The instruments are also AMR ready which means that companies can connect and transfer the data on them using a computer. Most computerized device comes with a probe that allows information to be transferred through a pocket PC.

Tamper Proof

Another benefit of this device is that it is more difficult to tamper with. The gadget is also easy to use. It can be set up without additional equipments required. The modular architecture for medium and high-end meters provide easy configuration to users.

A Primer On Hand Tools: Measuring And Layout Tools

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

No woodworking project can be a success without doing some measuring and some laying out of parts. There are an amazing variety of tools from elegant and high tech to ugly and low tech to get the job done. The most important thing is accuracy. While there might be some fudge factor in banging together a temporary gate to keep the dog out of the garden, when it comes to getting a good fit on a cabinet door or drawer, measurements are key.

The two primary ways to assure accurate measurements are by direct measure using a ruler, protractor, etc and by reference, using tools such as a story stick, bevel gauge, or pantograph. In this article I will discuss Direct Measurements:

oRulers: There are more variety’s of rulers than you can shake a stick at (sorry, I couldn’t resist.) Most of us are pretty familiar with the standard 12″ wooden ruler of our school days. We probably have one somewhere in the house. While wooden rulers are familiar and common they are not the best ruler for the workshop.

oWooden rulers get dinged up, the metal edge falls out and the paint peels from the numbers. Additionally, most wooden rulers have only relatively coarse fractions from 1/8″ to 1″ segments. In fine woodworking the tolerances may call for a 1/16, 1/32 or even a 1/64 measurment. Also, some plans call for metrics and those can be quite hard to read on wood. For clarity and durability I would recommend metal over either wood or plastic.

oIn my shop I have three ruler sizes; a 3ft, 12″ and a finely detailed 6″. My 6″ is thin bladed allowing it to be used for precise, close in detail. True, I need really good light to read it these days but with 1/64th increments on one side and millimeters on the other side I can get as exact as I need to be. This is the ruler I use every day on almost every project.

oTape measures: The advantage of a tape measure is the distance it can cover. The disadvantage is a lack of accuracy. Manipulate the metal tab on the end and you’ll see how much play it has. Tape measures are good for getting an overall length, for checking diagonal corners for square and similar large scale tasks. They have a proper place in the shop, if they are properly used.

oOne practice to keep in mind is to use the same measuring tool for each similar task. For instance, if you use a tape measure to measure one side of a cabinet, use the same tape measure for the other side and for the back. This way, all of your measurements will be consistent.

oAngles: The most common angles in woodworking are 45 degree & 90 degree, basically, a square edge and a miter. For these two the ideal tool is a tri-square. This is basically a metal ruler with a sliding head. One side of the head is 90 degrees to the ruler and the other is 45 degrees to the ruler. For everything in between you need a protractor.

With these three tools: Tape measure, tri square (which includes a ruler,) and a protractor you can create all the measurements you need for any project. That being said, there are countless ways to refine and simplify those measurements. As you practice your craft you’ll find some measuring tools easier and more comfortable for your needs. When you discover a favorite, find a hand place to keep it and put it there every time you are finished for the day, you don’t want it to go missing just when you need it the most!

Distance Measuring Equipment Whilst Conducting a Flight Planner

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

What is distance measuring equipment that is used within a flight planner?

Distance measuring equipment is a transponder based radio navigation technology that measures slant range distance by timing the propagation delay or VHF or UHF radio signals. Developed in Australia, it was invented by Edward George Bowen while employed as Chief of the Division of Radio physics of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).  Another engineered version of the system was deployed in the early 1950s operating in the 200 MHz VHF band. The Australian domestic version was referred to by the Federal Department of Civil Aviation as DME (D) and the later international version adopted by ICAO as DME.  DME is similar to secondary radar, except in reverse. This system was a post war development of the IFF systems of World War II. To maintain compatibility, DME is functionally identical to the distance measuring component of TACAN used within a flight planner.


Aircraft use DME to determine their distance from a land based transponder by sending and receiving pulse pairs. These are two pulses of fixed duration and separation. The ground stations are typically located with VORs. A typical DME ground transponder system for en-route or terminal navigation will have a 1 kW peak pulse output on the assigned UHF channel.  A low power DME can also be co-located with an ILS glide slope antenna installation where it provides an accurate distance to touchdown function, similar to that otherwise provided by ILS Marker Beacons.

Distance calculation and accuracy used within a flight planner

When using a flight planner, a radio pulse takes around 12.36 microseconds to travel 1 nautical mile to and from and it is also referred to as a radar mile. The time difference between interrogation and reply 1 nautical mile minus the 50 microsecond ground transponder delay is measured by the interrogator’s timing circuitry and translated into a distance measurement (slant range) which is stated in nautical miles and then displayed on the cockpit DME display.  The accuracy of DME ground stations is 185m. Its important to know that DME provides the physical distance from the aircraft to the DME transponder. This distance is often referred to as ‘slant range’ and depends trigonometrically upon both the altitude above the transponder and ground distance from it when using a flight planner.
