Attribute Gauges - Skill Group Pathway


$75 Enroll

Full program description


Precision measurement instruments differ from normal measurement tools because of their ability to measure with a greater degree of precision and accuracy. This course covers how to properly use Go/NoGo thread gauges, attribute gauges, thickness and radius gauges, squares and protractors, and surface roughness comparators.

By the end of this course, you will be able to

  • Identify the different types of threads and their components
  • Use Go/NoGo thread gauges to inspect thread form
  • Define the purpose of attribute gauges
  • Use an attribute gauge to inspect a product
  • Explain the purpose and function of a thickness gauge and a radius gauge
  • Use a thickness gauge to make a comparative measurement
  • Use a radius gauge to measure the radius on a workpiece
  • Use a solid square to mark perpendicular lines and use a combination square to measure and mark lines
  • Use a protractor head to mark angular lines
  • Compare the roughness of a surface of a part to a surface roughness comparator

Estimated completion time (hours): 5.9
