Top 10 Best Digital Calipers in India – Buyers Guide

The very first Caliper was found in Greece around 6th century BC.

Since then, it made its way to the Chinese, the Romans and slowly, all across the world.

The calipers are devices that help you take accurate measurements.

The modern day caliper, created by Joseph R. Brown, an American in the year 1851 is the first practical tool used for measuring and available at an affordable price for ordinary mechanists.

Basically, it is a precision instrument that can be used to measure distances very accurately.

It is widely used all across the world as it can be used to the accuracy of one-thousandth of an inch and one-hundredth of a millimeter.

WHERE ARE CALIPERS USED?

Vernier calipers are high precision instruments, that is, there is a very slight possibility of an error. They are widely used in science labs, engineering aspects, etc.

For measuring the inside dimensions of a particular object, the upper jaws of the caliper are used. The distance between two objects can also be measured by putting it between them.

For measuring outside diameter, the lower jaws need to be clamped around the object.

There is also a depth probe present in the back part of the caliper which helps us measure the depth accurately.

DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE CALIPER

  1. DIGITAL MAIN SCALE

The accurate that is taken is displayed on the mean beam scale and is of least error.

  1. UPPER JAWS

The inner dimensions are taken with the help of the upper jaws of the caliper.

  1. LOWER JAWS

The outer dimensions are taken with the help of the lower jaws of the caliper.

  1. LCD DISPLAY

The accurate readings are displayed on the LCD display.

  1. ZERO BUTTON

This is to reset the LCD display to zero any time.

  1. THUMB SCREW

The thumb screw is used to adjust the different parts of the caliper so as to get the required accurate measurement.

TYPES OF CALIPERS

  1. DIAL CALIPERS

The dial calipers consist of a dial that displays the measurement taken. They consist of a rack and a pinion mechanism system.

They are a mechanical instrument and do not need any type of power source to run. They work thoroughly even in harsh weather conditions.

You can directly read the measurement on the dial without having to look at the vernier scale.

  1. VERNIER CALIPER

The vernier caliper has two sides. They can measure about 6 inches to 300 mm.

Vernier Calipers are widely used for their precision and accuracy. They can measure internal as well as external dimensions.

They are also available in different sizes and scales.

  1. DIGITAL CALIPER

With the enhancement in technology, the world has suddenly boosted in the digital aspect.

They are the most advanced type of caliper which gives absolutely accurate measurement and are very precise.

They run on an electronic base and hence, they need batteries to run. They are cheap and hence, are efficient.

They also consist of an LCD which displays the readings.

WHY DOES THE DIGITAL CALIPER PROVE TO BE THE BEST CHOICE?

The digital caliper is based on the digital and electronic aspect of technology and hence, they prove to be efficient in the long run.

They can easily switch between different systems such as the inch and the centimeter system. They make accurate measurements and also completely erase off human errors as all the work is done by the caliper.

The measurements can be displayed on the LCD display by using the hold button.

The zero button helps you to make the reading that is displayed to zero any time you want.

They are cost efficient as well as prove to be a good deal for your money.

Even though the other calipers have their pros, after estimating all the pros and cons, the digital caliper is said to be the most efficient.

DIGITAL CALIPERS BUYER’S GUIDE

  1. TYPE OF CALIPER

There are different types of calipers present in the market. Each set of calipers has their own advantages and disadvantages. Thus, before buying, make sure you decide on the type you want.

Vernier calipers are rugged and long-lasting. They are shock-proof as well as coolant-proof. But you need a really good eyesight to read the measurements on the scale.

Dial calipers have the advantage that they are really easy to read. But they are not entirely shock-proof and are not resistant to dirt.

Digital calipers run on batteries and are giving the most accurate measurements. But they do not work accurately under harsh weather conditions. They completely erase off all the human errors done while reading the measurements as all the work is done by the digital technology.

  1. ACCURACY AND RESOLUTION

Before buying a caliper, knowing the accuracy and resolution of the given caliper are of utmost importance.

If your job needs a better accuracy and resolution and the weather conditions are normal, then you may go for the best digital caliper.

But if the weather is the restraint, then you should go for a caliper that is rugged and works well in harsh conditions.

  1. SIZE

The calipers are available in different sizes as per their use. You can always choose the caliper of your favorable size according to the type of job.

  1. WARRANTY

Lastly, a warranty is the most important factor as a Caliper is a precision instrument and if anything goes wrong with it, the accuracy will be affected.

Since digital calipers are electronic instruments, there is a possibility of something breaking down and the measurements getting affected.

Hence, you should always choose the caliper with a good deal of warranty so that you can get it replaced or repaired as long as it is in the warranty period.
