The vernier caliper can be traced back to ancient China as early as the Xin dynasty (9 AD). It was reinvented in its modern form in 1631 by the French mathematician Pierre Vernier (1580–1637) and has since developed to include 3 main variations, the vernier caliper, the dial caliper and the digital caliper (often referred to as a digital vernier). The benefit of the caliper is its simplicity and ease of use for measuring diameter, width, length and depth and can also be used for more specialist applications such as groove measurement.
