Gaging.com Visits IMTS 2018!
Every 2 years the IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show) takes place at McCormick Place in Chicago. Of course, it has all the latest advances in the machining world on full display and operating but most importantly to us, this is also THE SHOW to go to in the U.S. to see all the latest innovations in the world of quality and precision measurement. I have only missed one in 20 years and plan on returning in 2020!

“Skidded” vs “Skidless” Profilometers
The typical application for a Profilometer is to measure the surface finish of a steel machined product to a very high accuracy. A measurement is separated into a number of cutoffs with a specified stroke length and even the most basic tester can usually measure accurately down to about 10Ra or .000010”.
Accuracy and Precision "You don’t want one without the other!"
If you put the search terms “Accuracy Definition” into Google you will be presented with the following result: “the quality or state of being correct or precise”
Measuring Flatness? Don’t make this mistake!
At Gaging.com LLC we do more than sell gages. We are also Metrology fans, geeks or whatever you would like to call us. So when we see the opportunity to perhaps provide a little clarity in our chosen field, we take it!
