Back to Basics: How Air Gaging Works

Air gaging technology is continually improving as computer technology continues to evolve.  These systems can range from simple desktop readouts to full SPC computers with contour scanning capabilities.  As manufacturing requirements continue to become more complex, air gaging technology evolves to meet the demand.  For these reasons, air gaging will remain a viable measuring solution for generations to come.
Air gaging technology has its roots back over 70 years and is today a viable and highly reliable method for many applications in industries where a high volume of parts is produced or where the precision of hard-to-access dimensions makes other measuring techniques impossible.
