Back to Basics: How Air Gaging Works

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.

Direct Load Position Sensing with Secondary Feedback Encoders

To help verify machine tool accuracy in closed-loop motion control systems, direct load monitoring using secondary feedback encoders eliminates common sources of position error — mechanical backlash, non-linearity, and hysteresis — and saves money along the way.
