A digital angle gauge is a measuring instrument (gauge) used to check the angle between two surfaces.
The gauge is pressed against two surfaces with arbitrary angles, and whether the measured surfaces are in line with the gauge forming the standard angle is checked to see if the angle is the standard angle.
Gauges are mainly available in sets of several different angles, so the user selects a gauge for the angle to be checked.
Other angle measuring devices include bevel protectors and digital angle gauge.
Angle gauges are used when angle measurements are not required or for inspections such as beveling.
Digital angle gauges are mainly used to check bevel angles in gas cutting and other beveling and welding processes.
In welding processes, bevel angle and bevel shape affect the quality of the finished workpiece, so it is necessary to check whether the bevel angle is as specified.
If angle measurements or horizontal and vertical inspections are required for non-welding processes, a digital angle meter is used to verify the measured values.
For example, in construction work, measurements are taken at a plumbing or roofing site.
In digital angle gauges, the base is the reference plane, and by aligning the base with the measurement plane, the angle of the measurement plane is displayed and the angle difference from the horizontal plane (zero-setting plane) can be checked.
The digital angle gauges consist of a set of several types of gauges of arbitrary angles.
The digital angle gauges are thin plate, and the reference angle is indicated on the plate.
The plate is a rectangle with a right triangle containing one right angle cut out of it, and the angle formed by the straight line cut out and the opposite straight line is the reference angle. Therefore, it is possible to inspect whether the bevel angle is at the specified angle or not by placing the thin cut-off tip along the workpiece.
Since the measured value is not displayed, it is essential to check the reference angle of the digital angle gauges being used. For example, if only one specific bevel angle is to be inspected, it is possible to prevent human error by installing only the angle gauge with the appropriate reference angle in the work area.
Digital angle gauges can measure the angle of the measuring surface and confirm the measured value.
To check the level, place the base on a horizontal reference and perform angle calibration (zero setting). Then, by aligning the base with the measurement surface, the angle difference with respect to the reference is displayed, allowing you to check whether the measurement surface is level.
