Go/No Go Gauges
Go/No go gauges are tools used to check the tolerances of a workpiece, for example, thread depth and major diameter of a screw. Go/no go gauges are utilized to ensure interchangeability of parts between processes. Go/no go gauges rate a component as either acceptable (within tolerance), or outside of tolerance. Examples of go/no go gauges include plug gauges (used like a plug to measure hole depth), pin gauges (used for measuring very small holes), and snap gauges (incorporates four jaws that allow for single-action checking of workpiece).
LMI Corp.’s LaserGage HS742 3D sensor is a 3D laser profiler and that uses blue-laser technology and application-specific algorithms to overcome the challenge of measuring countersinks on solid, translucent, shiny, and opaque surfaces with repeatable results.
Easily interfaced to any robot system or welding machine, the i-FACT intelligent robotic inspection system from Servo-Robot automatically digitizes joint and bead surfaces to provide geometric data and detect weld defects.
Guided sequence gauging from Marposs uses augmented reality glasses that guide inspectors through a sequence of steps and measurements to check component features using an iWave2 handheld wireless gauge and a Go/NoGo gauge.
