Indicator stands, also known as comparator stands, are tools used in precision measurement applications to support and position measuring instruments such as Dial or Digital Indicators. These stands are typically made of sturdy materials such as steel, aluminum, or cast iron and are designed to provide a stable base for the measuring instrument.
Indicator stands typically consist of a base, a vertical column, and an arm or rod that extends from the column to hold the measuring instrument. The base is often weighted or secured to a surface to prevent movement during use, while the column provides a vertical reference for positioning the measuring instrument. The arm or rod can be adjusted in various ways to achieve the desired positioning of the instrument.
Indicator stands come in a range of sizes and designs to suit different applications. Some stands are designed for benchtop use and are relatively small, while others are larger and more robust for use in industrial settings. Some stands feature fine adjustment controls to achieve precise positioning of the measuring instrument, while others may have additional features such as magnetic bases or adjustable height columns.
Overall, indicator stands are a valuable tool for ensuring accurate and repeatable measurements in a wide range of precision measurement applications.
