AccuPlug Bore Gage Systems Measure Aerospace, Automotive Parts
Advanced hand held ergonomics allied to an ingenious mechanical/electronic system render AccuPlug the easiest to operate Starrett bore gauging system to date.
The L.S. Starrett Company (Athol, MA) has announced a new line of AccuPlug Bore Gages that are accurate, flexible and ideal for repetitive measurements. They are custom built systems consisting of interchangeable indicators, plugs, extensions and depth stops.
The robust, easy-to-use AccuPlug range is designed to give the operator greater speed of use, unmatched measuring accuracy and superb repeatability, especially in harsh shop-floor environments. Advanced hand held ergonomics allied to an ingenious mechanical/electronic system render AccuPlug the easiest to operate Starrett bore gauging system to date. The flexible nature of the Starrett AccuPlug range means that they can be supplied and fitted with easy to read electronic indicators (ideal for automatic data collection) and conventional analogue indicators.
The Starrett AccuPlug gages are generally used in production departments (rather than quality labs) for applications where the same diameter needs to be measured repetitively and accurately to detect dimensional deviations and shape defects errors.
The plug is inserted into the bore to be measured and the reading can be observed on the indicator without the need for extracting anvils. Therefore, it is a much quicker operation than measuring with 3-point gages and more accurate because there is very little travel of the contacts. Since these are 2-point measuring instruments, they can also be used to measure ovality.
Industries most likely to use the AccuPlug Bore Gage Systems would be the Automotive and Aerospace industry.
Founded and headquartered in 1880 in Athol, The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision tools, gages and instruments, saws and hand tools. While best known for precision tools in the United States, Starrett is also a major, worldwide manufacturer of saw blade products.
Starrett products are sold throughout the United States and worldwide through distributors, dealers, and retailers and online. In recent years, the Company has broadened its product offering through acquisitions and innovative product line expansion.
