Handbook of Dimensional Measurement
The fifth edition features two new chapters covering New Developments in Dimensional Measurement and The Measurement of Geometric Dimensions and Tolerances, while providing comprehensive state-of-the-art treatment of all known dimensional measurement devices and techniques. This unique resource is organized into chapters by gage type and function while individual chapters move from simple to complex, as well as from timeless measurement techniques to the most modern and innovative. As the single best, most recognized and respected reference on the topic, this new edition maintains its position as the most comprehensive source for dimensional measurement information available! It includes an improved and expanded illustration program, with 50 new figures and new digital photographs. It supplements discussions with nearly 600 illustrations, line drawings and photographs. It includes improvements and innovations made by the leading manufacturers of dimensional measurement equipment, hardware, and machinery from the last edition. It describes equipment, hardware, and machinery in explicit narrative detail. It brings all references to national and international standards up-to-date.
