Having acquired CMI Technologies in 2016, AIMS’s new AIMS CMI Technologies division not only helps the coordinate measuring machine (CMM) manufacturer control quality and delivery timeframes for its LM and HB Revolution-series components, but it also enables the company to offer custom gages of any size. The ability to manufacture and support both CMMs and air or electronic gaging equipment enables customers to optimize throughput for their particular application needs.

AIMS CMI builds custom gages based on customer requirements, removing the need to limit sizes. Gages can be designed and produced to check parts every three seconds or manually check as many as 30 part features in 30 seconds.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.

  • Gaging Countersunk And Chamfered Holes

    While countersunk and chamfered holes are similar in appearance, functionally they are quite different. Consequently, different gages exist to serve these different functional requirements.
