Inspection Tools & Equipment

As part of our commitment to cutting costs, increasing quality, and improving efficiencies, we’ve invested heavily in state of the art inspection tools and measurement tools. Our in-house CMM (coordinate measuring machine), means we don’t have to ship your parts to a 3rd party parts inspection service or dimensional lab. 

 

This means both cost savings, and time savings for you and gives us complete control over the quality process. With our CMM we can measure your machined parts both in-process and during final inspection to ensure that you receive precision machined parts that meet the tightest tolerance requirements. In addition to our in-house CMM – coordinate measuring machine, we also utilize the following equipment: 

  • Digital Height Gauges
  • Precision Gage Calibration Systems – MIC TRAC
  • Gagemaker – Thread inspection
