The Divisions of Cloth Measuring Tape

The unit of cloth measuring tape is listed in this article. A cloth measuring tape has 60 inch or 150 cm. A measurement tape has 1.5 mitres. 1 mitre = 100 cm. 1 cm = 10 m.m. 1 ligne = o.635. 1 mm = 1574 ligne. 1 cm = 15.74 ligne . 1 inch = 40 ligne. Objective is to ensure that all measurement tapes are calibrated to give zero defect targets. Defected measurement tapes are replaced with proper record.

Standard Operating Procedure  for cloth Tape Measure Calibration

Procedure: To establish a system/ policy to control:

  1. All measurement tapes are calibrated after 06 months.
  2. Measurement tapes are issued from central point lab only.
  3. Measurement tapes are calibrated against steel pre-calibrated scale.
  4. Pre-calibrated steel tape is attested by third party every year.
  5. After 06 months each measurement is checked with tolerance of 1/8” against each 32” and recorded in lab.

Cloth Tape Measure Divisions:

If we divide 1 inch into 32 divisions for cloth tape measure –

1/32”               = 0.793 MM17/32”             = 13.493 MM
2/32” = 1/16”  = 1.587 MM18/32” = 9/16”            = 14.267 MM
3/32                 = 2.381 MM19/32               = 15.051 MM
4/32” = 1/8”    = 3.175 MM20/32” = 5/8”  = 15.875 MM
5/32”               = 3.968 MM21/32”             = 16.863 MM
6/32” = 3/16”  = 4.762 MM22/32” = 11/16”          = 17.462 MM
7/32”               = 5.556 MM23/32”             = 18.236 MM
8/32” = ¼”      = 6.350 MM24/32” = 3/8”  = 19.050 MM
9/32”               = 7.143 MM25/32”             = 19.843 MM
10/32” = 5/16”            = 7.937 MM26/32” = 13/16”          = 20.637 MM
11/32”             = 8.731 MM27/32”             = 21.431 MM
12/32” = 3/8    = 9.525 MM28/32” = 7/8    = 22.225 MM
13/32”             = 10.318 MM29/32”             = 23.018 MM
14/32” = 7/16”            = 11.112 MM30/32” = 15/16”          = 23.812 MM
15/32”             = 11.906 MM31/32”             = 24.606 MM
16/32”= ½’’     = 12.906 MM32/32”=1’’       = 25.656 MM

If we divide 1 inch into 16 equal divisions for cloth tape measur

1/16”
2/16” = 1/8”
3/16
4/16” = ¼”
5/16” ”
6/16” = 3/8
7/16”
8/16” =  ½”
9/16”
10/16” = 5/8”
11/16”
12/16” = ¾”
13/16”
14/16” = 7/8”
15/16”
16/16” = 1”

If we divide a cloth measuring tape 1 inch into 8 equal division

1/8”
2/8” = ¼”
3/8”
4/8 = ½”
5/8”
6/8” = ¾”
7/8”
8/8” = 1”
  • 1 YEARD = 36 INCH
  • 36 INCH = 91.44CM
