Increasingly, Asimeto is the choice of engineers the world over including companies like Volkswagen, Guhring and Boeing.
We invite you to discover why.
A caliper is a tool used to measure the distance between two sides of an object: you can measure, with an accuracy down to 0.01mm, a size which otherwise would not be easily measurable with any other tool. Nowadays, digital calipers have become much more popular, due to being far more easier and more accurate.
These are similar to a slide rule: they are completely stick shift, so they are perfect for those who don’t get confused easily when it comes to reading numbers and measures. They have no dial or display, so reading must be calculated directly on the body (by lined increments). Due to misinterpretation, they are hard to read. Still, they are sturdy and shock resistant, in addition to being less expensive than dial and digital models.
This kind of caliper is relatively easy to use. They have a lined dial that shows the measurement, so all you have to do is add the slide measurement to have the exact and final measurement. Their cost is a little bit higher and they are less shock resistant compared to verniers.
These are the ultimate tools for those who definitely aren’t math people, but also for taking highly precise measurements. They accurately display up to 0.025mm (0.001”) and can take absolute and incremental measurements. Obviously, digital calipers are more likely to be damaged from a shock; moreover, they may lose accuracy if you work in contact with oil or dust and they are more expensive than other types. Always remember to keep batteries with you, so you don’t risk finding yourself with a dead caliper while you work.
Choosing the right caliper can be fairly confusing or stressful, due to the amount of variations out there. However, they all do the same thing. They all measure to extremely high accuracy and that's what matters.
If you need to bring in other factors, like think about the application environment, working in conditions where the tool would be prone to coming in contact with water or fluid, then you will need to think about a waterproof digital vernier. Our IP67 Digital Calipers 305 Series conforms to the IP67 ratings.
IP67 means the unit can be dropped into a body of water up to a meter deep for half an hour.
Any of our calipers which are not IP67, are just splash proof.
