Calibration Training – The Search for Errors Using Calibration Methods

In episode 003 of the Metrology Training Lab, Dr. Jim Salsbury examines what makes a good calibration method. We look at five calibration methods developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers or ASME. The American National Standards covered in this video include ASME B89.1.10 for dial indicators, ASME B89.1.9 for gage blocks, ASME B89.1.13 for outside micrometers, ASME B89.1.14 for calipers and ASME B89.3.7 for surface plates. Good information if you are interested in the calibration of measuring instruments.
