Various gauges

Gauges are used to check shapes or dimensions to be produced in a simple way. This ensures that specified values are or have been adhered to in production.

You don’t measure with a gauge, you don’t get a numerical value as a result. Instead, a comparison is made as to whether one or more specific dimensions of a test specimen correspond to the specifications of the gauge. Gauges therefore normally have fixed dimensions and cannot be adjusted.

As a result of the test with a gauge, the workpiece is assessed as good or as a reject.

Gauges are used in production, assembly and measurement technology.
