Uses of Outside Caliper:

  • The same observations and techniques are applied to the outside caliper compared with inside caliper.
  • With some understanding of their limitations and usage, these instruments can provide a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.
  • They are especially useful when measuring over very large distances i.e.for example to measure a large diameter pipe.
  • A vernier caliper does not have the depth capacity to straddle this large diameter while at the same time reach the outermost points of the pipe’s diameter.
  • They are made from high carbon steel.
