Calculate the correct change in the diameter of a workpiece with the help of an online taper calculator to align all the machine parts quickly and precisely. Get 100% accurate results within seconds.
**Taper Definition:**

Taper means short or thin end. It is a gradual decrease in the thickness or width of an object or pipe. Meanwhile, you can say that it’s a uniform reduction in the diameter of an object. In general, it's a section of the pipe in which diameter reduction occurs over the length. With the help of taper measure, you can easily set all the machine parts correctly.
**Taper Formula:**

To find out the correct taper value and the angle use the below-mentioned formula:
**T = (Dl – Ds) / L**
**Taper Angle = arctan(0.5 x Taper)**
Where
**How To Measure Taper?**

Follow the below-mentioned steps to calculate taper accurately:
**Example:**

Let's assume the larger diameter of an object is 10 ft and the smaller diameter is 7 ft, the length between the larger and smaller diameter is 4 ft. Now perform the taper per foot calculation.
**Solution:**

Given that:
Larger Diameter = Dl = 10 ft
Smaller diameter = Ds = 7 ft
Total length = 4 in.
Taper Ratio Formula = (dl – ds) / L
T = (10 -7) / 4 = 3 /4
Taper Ratio = 3:4
T = 0.75
Now as we know that 1 inch = 0.0833333ft
T = 0.75 x 0.0833333 = 0.625 ft
Now the taper angle:
TA = arctan(0.5 x Taper) = arctan(0.5 x 0.75)
TA = 20.556 degree
If you find it difficult to perform the taper length calculation, then get the assistance of an online taper per foot calculator. By using it, you just have to enter the measurements of diameters and the total length and it will provide you with the correct output swiftly.

**FAQ’s:**

**What Is The Use of Taper?**

Taper is used for various purposes such as mounting drill bits into chucks, plug-in adaptors, tool holders etc.
**What Does Taper 1 In 48 Mean?**

The ratio 1:48 taper means that one end of the 4-foot rod will have a 1-inch smaller size diameter than the other end.
**What Is The Taper Ratio?**

The taper ratio is one of the important factors that is taken into consideration during the designing of the wing of an aircraft. It is the ratio of the root and tip.
**Taper ratio formula = C tip / C root.**
