As the main element of quality inspection, dimensional metrology is an essential part of practical training for all metalworking professions. The GUNT DigiSkills 2 learning project offers different practice kits to teach basic to advanced skills in dimensional metrology.
The PT 105 practice kit is designed to teach the fundamentals of dimensional metrology in training. It focuses on testing external diameters and threads. The practice kit includes ten shafts as test objects, each of which differs in dimensions and each of which is individually marked. Selected dimensions of the shafts are tested by reference to the main drawing. Seven of the ten test objects show deviations, so that they are identified as rejects during the test. Four different pieces of test equipment are included for taking measurements and gauging: a calliper, a depth calliper, an external micrometer and a thread gauge. Three slip gauges are also available for calibrating the measuring instruments.
The practice kit includes comprehensive didactic multimedia teaching material, which is available free of charge online in the GUNT Media Center. The E-Learning course presents fundamental knowledge and the test process in detail with appealing animations. The manual is also included as a digital version in the E-Learning course. Drawings are available as target specifications for editing the prepared digital worksheets. In this way, digital skills can be developed alongside traditional, specialist learning objectives.
All parts are clearly laid out and well protected in a stackable storage system with foam inlays.
