GAUGE BLOCK CALIBRATION

The Gauge block was invented in at the end of the nineteenth century; this makes gauge block calibration among the oldest high precision calibrations in dimensional metrology. The main purpose of a Gauge clock is to standardize length- over time the necessity for higher accuracy has become a largely recognized issue for gauge blocks- making gauge block calibration and gauge block re-calibration vital to be sure that measurements are of the highest precision and quality. So you may wonder, when do I get my Gauge block re-calibrated? There are a handful of things to be considered when it comes to this; here are a few general guidelines:
