Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / measuring equipment
 Italian term or phrase: alesametro I just have a list of measuring equipment for a laboratory. Anyway, I found this definition on the web: L'alesametro è uno strumento per la misura di diametri interni che utilizza normalmente un comparatore accoppiato ad un sistema meccanico che trasforma il movimento di traslazione dell'asta del comparatore in un movimento di due tastatori in direzione opposte su un piano perpendicolare a quello dell'asta del comparatore.

If you read the last part of my last link, you'll find many of the words in your Italian sentence:
"Dial bore gauge
Is a Dial indicator type gauge that will measure a range of holes directly. The tool consists of

A range of interchangeable anvil pieces (for the telescopic part of the gauge) that transfer their movement to a freely moving rod.
A body that includes a transfer mechanism (the movable rod)
A dial indicator mounted at the remote end (to measure the axial movement of the rod).
This combination allows the bore size to be accurately read from the instrument with the minimum of effort. The fixed end of the anvil piece has pressure fingers on either side of it that assist correct placement in the bore, this reduces the reliance on feel by the operator, as required when using the telescopic gauge."
