This report is made as a part of the project EASYTRAC, an EU project under the programme Competitive and Sustainable Growth: Contract No. G6RD-CT-2000-00188, coordinated by UNIMETRIK S.A. (Spain). The project is concerned with low uncertainty calibrations on coordinate measuring machines. For this project, the Centre for Geometrical Metrology (CGM) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) takes care of thread measurements, in collaboration with Dipartimento di Innovazione Meccanica e Gestionale (DIMEG) - University of Padova - Italy, Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt Braunschweig (PTB) - Germany and Tampere University of Technology (TUT) - Finland. The present report describes the feasibility of the reversal and substitute element technique for thread calibration.
