The Gagemaker PG-6000 and RG-7000 Series gauges measure diameters of internal, and external threads respectively. Both series of these functional diameter gauges inspects the effects of all thread element variations and report deviations.
The gauges must be preset to a Nominal predetermined dimension using gauge blocks, micrometers, or the MIC TRAC measurement centre.
These Thread Rolls inspect the Functional fit of machined parts with 60º “V” Thread forms. Sold in matched sets of rolls.
TRA & TRSA thread rolls inspect the functional fit of parts with 29º ACME and Stub ACME threadforms.
Please specify the pitch of thread when ordering.
TRM thread rolls inspect the functional fit of machine threaded parts with ISO metric 60º “V” threadforms.
These thread rolls inspect the functional fit of parts with 7º x 45º buttress threadforms. Specify the pitch of thread when ordering.
Specials - all other thread forms available upon request.
The Gagemaker PD-6000 and PD-8000 Series gauges measure Pitch Diameters of internal, and external threads. The gauges can be preset to a nominal predetermined dimension using gauge blocks, micrometers, or the MIC TRAC measurement centre.
Gagemaker's standard ball contact points are manufactured with spherical chrome balls with threaded shanks of 4-48 UNF. Contact sizes are matched closely to thread inspection wire sizes. The contact diameters listed are used in the TDWIN Thread Disk for Windows software program for pitch diameter inspection.
Gagemaker’s TDWIN TAPER software program produces dimensional drawings and inspection data for API downhole tubular connectors based on the most current industry standards. Everything you need to machine, inspect, and document tubular connection threads is available in this convenient software program.
TDWIN TAPER provides easy access to information for both preferred and non-preferred Rotary Shouldered Connections, Tubing and Casing Connections, and any combination of Crossover. The program offers standard connection types and sizes. TDWIN TAPER displays connection drawings, inspection gauge information and setup and inspection reports.
The software displays printable drawings suitable for manufacturing that follow ASME Y14.5 standards for industry compatibility. Print gauge setup and inspection reports with your company logo and work order information. The program also offers the choice to save reports and jobs for future reference.
The Gagemaker MIC TRAC is a multi-use Gauge setting system. The system sets or zeros most gauges with the use of interchangeable anvils or blocks. Standard resolution of base unit is 0.00005”. Accuracies range from +/- 0.0001” to +/- 0.0004”.
The MIC TRAC is also available as a multi-use gauge calibration system. These MIC TRAC's incorporate the ForeLok™ feature to provide a constant anvil force that improves repeatability from operator to operator. Please ask the Bowers sales team for details.
These gauges adjust to cover all sizes of R, RX, and BX ring grooves. The standard gage measures groove diameters from 2.6" - 13" andgroove widths from .34" - 1.5". Optional rails extend the range of diameters from 13" - 36". The face groove gauges accurately measure thering groove diameter and width at the critical sealing point of the face groove. Gauge indicators show actual deviation from a preset masterdimension. The BX-1000 can be used to measure straight or tapered groove diameters, shallow bores, and hole locations. Contact pointsincluded are .188". The BXG-1000 measures widths of straight or tapered grooves and includes .072" contact points.
The MRP series of Pitch diameter gauges measures internal and external pitch diameters of tapered threaded connectors. The gauges use two pivoting thread shoes that rest on the crests of the threads. Variation in diameter is detected by the indicator readout.
The MRP gauges are preset to size before inspecting parts. A variety of setting standards are available. Alternatively the MIC TRAC setting system can be used.
The MRP-5000 series of thread pitch diameter gauges use hardened and ground thread rolls to inspect functional size of tapered threaded connectors. The MRP-5000 gauges are adjustable within a size range and have interchangeable thread rolls for inspection of all API thread forms. The gauges must be preset to size using one of a variety of setting methods available. Please specify preferred taper arms when ordering. Thread rolls are sold separately.
MRP-5000 and MRP-5500 Thread Rolls
The product thread form determines the thread roll set that will be used. Thread roll sets consist of 2 rolls supplied in a labelled storage tube.
MRP-5500 Functional Roll Gauges for Tapered Threads
The MRP-5500 gauge is for rotary shouldered connections. The MRP-5000 series of thread pitch diameter gauges use hardened and ground thread rolls to inspect functional size of tapered threaded connectors. The MRP-5000 gauges are adjustable within a size range and have interchangeable thread rolls for inspection of all API thread forms. The gauges must be preset to size using one of a variety of setting methods available. Please specify preferred taper arms when ordering. Thread rolls are sold separately.
Gagemaker's Joint Strength System (JSS) is a revolutionary breakthrough in enhancing rotary shouldered connection thread inspection
