The usage and maintenance of measuring tapes
In daily measurement, besides environment factor, we should pay attention to the usage  and maintenance of the measuring tape to get more specific measuring date. Measurement error will appear because of  improper use, it will damage its accuracy even effect product quality for careless maintenance. The following are some usage and maintenance ways of measuring tapes.
 
I. Preparation for  tape measuring tape before using:
(1)   Make sure the measuring tape has been returned to zero.
(2)   Check if there are  rustiness, wear or scratch etc in the surface of the measuring tape
(3)   Clear the burrs, grease or slag chip etc.of the surface
(4)   Clean with clean soft cloth or dust-free paper.
(5)   Check the inspection records regularly, adjust it again when necessary
(6)   Put measuring tapes and instruments in appropriate position, do not overlap.
(7) Put soft lint or soft paper on working plat before using vulnerable tools (eg. optical mirror).
 
II.Cautions for using measuring tape
(1) Keep appropriate contact with workpiece when measuring, no skewed and avoid touch its surface to protect the measuring tapes.
(2) The measuring force should be appropriate, excessive pressure will lead to measurement error even break measuring tapes.
(3) Using appropriate clamping way with work to avoid inaccurate measurement.
(4) Do not measure the rolling workpiece to avoid risk
(5) Don't push measuring tapes into the workpiece or vice clamp forcefully.
(6) Don't  knock, throw or put the measuring tapes  arbitrarily
(7) Please comply with certain methods and steps when using special measuring tapes.
 
The maintenance of the measuring tape after using
(1) Keep it clean after using.
(2) Coated with anti-rust oil after cleaning and stored in cabinet.
(3) Disassembly, adjustment, modification and assembly should be carried out by technician. Do not implement arbitrarily.
(4) Check the performance of stock tools regularly and make a record.
(5)  Regularly check measuring tapes’ size as the basis of continuingto use or eliminate, and make the inspection and maintenance record.The usage and maintenance of measuring tapes
