V-anvil micrometers measure the diameter of a workpiece. They help measure the diameters of workpieces with a high degree of surface roughness.
The main advantage of using v-anvil micrometers over other types of micrometers is that they can measure smaller diameters. This makes them ideal for measuring small components like electronics or medical devices.
In addition, because v-anvil micrometers do not require an operator to reset them between measurements manually, they can be more accurate than other types of micrometers when measuring multiple parts with similar dimensions.
They can also measure very small diameters if necessary. However, it is important to note that this requires specialized calibration procedures and may not be suitable for every application—especially those where high accuracy is critical.
