The PH Tool 5-Step Block is used for thickness and linearity calibration. This 5-Step block comes in thicknesses of .100”, .200”, .300”, .400” and .500”, with a step face measuring .750″ x .750″. Two metric versions are also available. This test block is in accordance with ASTM E797.
Available in aluminum, steel, stainless steel and special alloy. Variations of this block are also available.
Standard test blocks are non-representative tools, meaning that they are not manufactured from actual parts. Rather, they are a simplified design that contains manufactured discontinuities such as holes, angles, radii and more. Standard test blocks serve the purpose of standardizing and calibrating test equipment to ensure it is functioning properly.
All test blocks ship with a NIST-traceable certification report stating that the block meets applicable specifications.
