Digital Radius Gauge A digital radius gauge is able to measure the radius of cylinders from 100-1000mm (3.937 – 39.37 inches). Its use is often associated with heavy industrial processes such as when roll bending sheet metal.
Digital radius gauge contact points A digital radius gauge is used when you require a high level of precision. Basic comparator tests (holding a gauge against an object) or basic calibre reading tests leave you with larger margins for error. Therefore a digital gauge is often used in the metal industry, when objects must be shaped to specific guidelines.

What are the advantages of using a digital radius gauge?

Advantages of a digital radius gauge The advantage of a digital radius gauge is that it is versatile and can be used to measure most curved surfaces. It is precise to three decimal places (millimetres).

What are the disadvantages of using a digital radius gauge?

Disadvantages of a digital radius gauge The disadvantage of the digital radius gauge is that it is relatively expensive compared to other radius gauges and it requires some technological understanding to set up and mathematical skill to interpret the results.
