Inspection & Measuring Equipment

Inspection and Measuring Equipment includes all of the tools and devices that are used to verify that a part’s dimensions all conform to the tolerances required by the part’s design. Included are various hand-held gages such as calipers and micrometers, as well as more simple gage blocks or plug gages. However, inspection and measurement in most shops also goes beyond hand-held gages to include coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), the measurement machine tools able to execute programmed measurement routines. Also included in this category are devices such as profilometers that measure the finish of machined surfaces.

The Versatility of Snap Gages

The many design modifications available in snap gages enables them to measure some of the most difficult dimensions, right at the point of manufacture.

Inspection System Helps Company Meet Short Lead Times

Even after buying new fast machine tools, inspection remained a bottleneck for BCI. A digital video inspection system from Starrett is increasing this company’s inspection throughput and helping it get parts to its customer on time.
