Traditionally, materials testing has been conducted with a device attached to the specimen’s surface to measure the strain. These devices, called extensometers, use very accurate strain gages inside or optical scales.
Titan Tool Supply, Inc., announces the introduction of models TM-8 and TM-10 high-magnification measuring microscopes with Vernier micrometer heads for inspection of electronic and semiconductor components, metallurgical parts, plastic molds, electrical strips, and other industrial quality control applications.
Some years ago I wrote about the ‘digital disease’ and how too many people actually believed digital displays with millionths of an inch resolution when the device they were part of could not deliver results worthy of the last few digits.
Air gaging allows you to measure many jobs faster, more conveniently, and more accurately than by using other gaging methods. In the measurement of hole conditions, air gaging is unsurpassed for speed and accuracy, while in checking any dimensional characteristic, air offers sufficient magnification and reliability to measure tolerances well beyond the scope of mechanical gages.
