Mechanical 3D Crackmeter



The mechanical 3D crackmeter is used with a dial indicator to monitor movement at joints and cracks. Typical applications include:

  • Monitoring construction joints to evaluate structural performance.
  • Monitoring cracks in structures near active construction sites.
  • Monitoring movement of rock masses in natural rock formations.


Readings are obtained by inserting a the probe of a dial indicator through the access holes to contact opposite component. Take three sets of XYZ readings to ensure that you have a good baseline for comparison. Compare subsequent readings to the baseline. Changes indicate that movement has occurred.


Easy Installation: Installation requires only two drill holes. Welding plates are also available.

Simple Operation: The crackmeter is read manually with a digital micrometer.
