Course Summary

Introduction

The value and usefulness of a machined part depend, above all, on the exactness of its dimensions. Measuring instruments are used to check the precision of dimensions. The purpose of this instruction is to familiarize learners with the basic principles of the description, use, and maintenance of the most widely used measuring instruments.

This course covers the basic principles of precision, errors and tolerances, how to identify and measure the dimensions of machine parts, and how to choose and use appropriate measuring instruments.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • basic principles of measurement,
  • measuring instruments and their uses,
  • precision instruments and their uses,
  • instruments used for checking,
  • measurement errors, and
  • suggestions for practical exercises.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the basic principles of precision, errors, and tolerances.
  • Identify and measure the dimensions of machine parts.
  • Choose and use appropriate measuring instruments.

Recommended Background

  • This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, or conditional monitoring for mining applications.

HumEng International

HumEng provides online courses and assessments for mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and condition monitoring for applications in mining.

The HumEng mission is to design, develop and implement training solutions that increase operational efficiency and productivity, and to sustain these improvements through training best practices.

The HumEng approach to training is based on skills management. Experience has proven that the acquisition of key skills, and the transfer of these skills to the shop floor, increases a company's competitiveness. This is even truer today, when operations must often rely on fewer employees, due to rationalization or to recruiting challenges.
