The report describes a study to determine the feasibility of building an automatic standard gauge block comparator, using a mechanical comparison technique. The basic device is to provide storage for block gauges awaiting calibration, together with their corresponding references, and to transfer the gauges in succession to the calibration table of a commercial block gauge comparator, by means of a carrier trolley. A minicomputer is to control input/output, process the data, store information on cassette or floppy disc where appropriate, and control the complete printout of the calibration certificate on a high speed printer.
