Composite materials are being used in an ever-increasing variety of products and applications, as more and more industries realize the benefits that these materials offer.
A highly common application for gages is inspecting threaded holes and shafts.
In recent years, we have seen an upward trend of higher production manufacturers wanting to integrate their air gaging quality checks from a stand-alone, outside of machine device where the operator is performing a manual check, to an automated in-process gage.
Quality control measurement continues to evolve, especially as coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), 3-D measurement tools and other inspection innovations gain popularity.
There are good reasons why traditional contact measurement machines (CMMs) have been staples in manufacturing’s quality control environments for decades.
Due to rapidly advancing production and testing technology, today’s industrial quality assessment procedures are more rigorous—and more precise—than ever before.
In today’s manufacturing environment high-precision noncontact optical shaft metrology is a solid investment, whether it’s an entry level SPC measuring station operated by the workers or a fully automatic system for 100% part inspection.
Height gages are a general purpose tool, which can be used in a variety of industries and applications by anyone who needs to measure precision parts.
