We offer an extensive range of machining capabilities and quality controls which allows us to provide much more than just gauges. Many of the custom products manufactured are used as machine components, medical products, hand tools, automotive parts, and aerospace products. Let us help you realize increased production rates by reducing wastes such as downtime, defects, and excessive motion. Rather than improvise with "off the shelf" items, we can supply your company with a gauge made specifically for your application. Contact us with all your custom gauge requirements.
Contact us for both small quantity end use and large quantities for OEM components. We can provide competitive pricing and lead times to meet your requirements. Our product engineers and a fully equipped production facility can offer a solution that works for you. Contact us today for a custom quote.
We can provide special markings, blade shapes, blade sizes, assembly options, and alternative packaging options to meet your specific needs.
Custom gages can be made quickly from any of our stock materials, including high carbon steel and stainless steel. Special materials are also available.
Ground and Cut Shapes
Our extensive full service machining capabilities allow us to offer many value-priced options designed to accommodate almost any application. A properly designed tool can improve production efficiency and productivity. Common applications are lead protrusion gages, machine components, and special profile gages. Form ground or EDM wire cut blades shapes are available in single size lots, or they can be applied to entire gage sets. We can also provide special markings, blade sizes, assembly options, and packaging to meet your requirements.
We can provide custom doctor blades up to 24" long with ground and lapped edges straight within .001". Whether using standard material from an extensive inventory, or special material that you specify, our short lead times will measure up to your expectations.
Length Gage Sets
Extra length gages can be made quickly using an extensive selection of stock materials. Gages are available as single blades or as a set. We commonly provide air gap gages for power and utility companies in 24", 36", and 48" lengths.
Blade thickness from .0005" to .040" can be made to any length. In that size range we have the capability to provide gage sets from 1 inch long to over 4 feet long with U shaped fan style holders.
All material is permanently marked with the thickness for easy identification. Metric sizes are also available.
Thickness and Width Feeler Gages
Special gages in this thicker size range are made from raw stock material, which is superior quality high carbon steel. All material is fully hardened to provide stable accuracy and superior wear resistance.
Each blade can be finished ground to size in any .0001" increment on thicknesses and widths. These custom gages are available with a quick turnaround time in lengths up to 24".
The standard tolerance is ±.0005" (±.0127mm). However, thickness tolerances of ±.0001 are available and quoted upon request.
The addition of a step creates two gauges in one and can be used as a Go/No-Go gauge or for different applications. Steps can be a huge time saver for your employees as they reduce the number of overall tools required. All gauges are permanently marked with the thickness for easy identification.
Soldered Assemblies and Bent Forms
Our ability to provide custom bending and stampings offers a solution to design a way around obstructions. Special cut off, grinding, and laser capabilities are available as well.
If bending does not meet your application, we can manufacture assemblies that are precise and durable. In many cases, the measuring blade is made from our standard close tolerance feeler gage stock, securely silver-soldered to a custom handle. Special blades are also available.
We can also provide gages with special markings, blade shapes, blade sizes, assembly options, and packaging to meet your requirements.
Other Custom Products and Services
We have the ability to provide laser marked or laser engraved part numbers, logos, bar codes, serial numbers or graduated scales. We can also spot weld multiple or extra thin gages together to allow accurate and flexible measurements.
Riveted assemblies guarantee feeler gages will not come undone during use.
Private label packaging and fast lead times allow you to keep inventories low and meet your customers' requirements.
Your requests will be promptly quoted and our efficient production team will assure you of quick production turnarounds and deliveries.
