Block Gauges Check Groove in a Bore V2

Solartron Metrology specialty sensors such as Block Gauges provide the ability to check awkward dimensions accurately and repeatable, and with a lower cost than non-contact offerings.


Manufacturing a piston or an engine component often involves non-standard geometric features, such as groves inside a bore or cavity. They are part of high tolerance system; the inner groove must still be gauged with precise instruments. Non-contact or pencil probes are impractical in such a limited space, so here the Block gauges comes solve this problem.
