What are you doing with your measurement data? Chances are, the data you are collecting is specifically for meeting quality and/or compliance requirements. You may even be collecting this data in a spreadsheet for future analysis. What if you could track this data in real time to improve your process? How could you use that information to solve your production challenges?

If you want to see how Statistical Process Control (SPC) data collection can improve your production process, contact us to set up a meeting with one of our application specialists.

The Hole Story: Bore Gage Calibration

Bore Gage CalibrationBore gages are used to measure the inside diameter or bore size of a hole. They can come in a variety of sizes and types including dial, digital, electronic, and Vernier.

While some adjust to provide direct measurement of the size of a bore, others are set to a specific size using a ring gage and are then used to verify the size of a bore. In either case, both your bore gages as well as your ring gages should be calibrated to ensure accurate and repeatable measurement.
