Explanation:
Hi. I found it simply as "comparator".
In the websites I'm giving you (especially the 1st one), do an Edit->Find-> comparator and you'll see how it is used.
Good luck.

dial indicator


Explanation:
It is a comparator of a specific type. You could also translate as "comparator with dial indicator" as opposed to other types of comparators (optical, go-nogo, etc.). There is a photo of a "reloj comparador" in use at the link below. You can also check any good machine tool catalog.

Good Luck!!!
