Quality precision gages are used as references when setting up measuring equipment used in the machine making shops. Gages include sine bars, micrometers, dial indicators, and callipers. A gage pin is a major component of the gaging device that is used for measuring (measurement indicator), and it works similar to the gage block. A gage is simply used to determine whether a dimension is accurate or notneedle on a gage normally moves through a calibrated scale to display the device’s measurements.
A dimensional gage is applicable in the fields of Science, Engineering and Housing. In the science field, the gages are used as laboratory measuring devices. In the engineering field, gages are mostly used for the manufacturing of engineering devices. In the housing field, gages are mostly used for measuring the thickness of building materials. Gages are also applicable in the following fields;
BTI provide solutions for several issues relating to gages, these include the regular Dimensional Gage related services such as
Among several others!
There are numerous kinds of gages in the market today, the commonest ones are
Often, some types of gages are used for similar purposes when the most accurate one is not available. For instance, cylindrical gages may be used as roundness gages in some situations.
