Product Announcement from Ametek Solartron Metrology
Block Gauges have precision linear bearings with zero clearance which limits unmeasured movement and therefore maintains excellent repeatability, even when the contact tip is mounted off centre. Flexures have no sliding components within the gauge frame and no contacting moving components within the sensor. This means that millions of cycles are achievable without degradation of performance.
Flexures are ideal for very high volume and high precision applications such as bearing component gauging. They are often the best solution for measuring moving material, such as roughness testing.
