Snap gauges are used for checking external dimensions. They are also called as gap

 

gauges. The different types of snap gauges are:

 

1.  Double Ended Snap Gauge

 

This gauge is having two ends in the form of anvils. Here also, the GO anvil is made to lower limit and NOGO anvil is made to upper limit of the shaft. It is also known as solid snap gauges


 

 

2.  Progressive Snap Gauge

 

This type of snap gauge is also called caliper gauge. It is mainly used for checking large diameters up to 100mm. Both GO and NOGO anvils at the same end. The GO anvil should be at the front and NOGO anvil at the rear. So, the diameter of the shaft is checked progressively by these two ends. This type of gauge is made of horse shoe shaped frame with I section to reduce the weight of the snap gauges.


 

 

3.  Adjustable Snap Gauge

 

Adjustable snap gauges are used for checking large size shafts made with horseshoe shaped frame of I section. It has one fixed anvil and two small adjustable anvils. The distance between the two anvils is adjusted by adjusting the adjustable anvils by means of setscrews. This adjustment can be made with the help of slip gauges for specified limits of size.


 

 

4.  Combined Limit Gauges

 

A spherical projection is provided with GO and NOGO dimension marked in a single gauge. While using GO gauge the handle is parallel to axes of the hole and normal to axes for NOGO gauge.


 

 

5.  Position Gauge

 

It is designed for checking the position of features in relation to another surface. Other types of gauges are also available such as contour gauges, receiver gauges, profile gauges etc.
