New range of Go/No-Go gages available

Slater Tools introduces its new and comprehensive product line of Go/No-Go gage sets for customer-specific applications. The full range of gages are designed and engineered precisely to inspect parts for machining process variations such as form size, twist, and tool wear.

Ideal for use with Slater Tools rotary broaches, these gages are held to extremely tight tolerances, within 0.0002 inches (0.005 mm). They are produced from oil hardened M2 high-speed steel and can be custom made to any shape or size to fit custom needs.

All gages are offered for numerous shapes, either as full-form composite, sector, or progressive forms. Both plug and ring gages are offered for checking internal or external forms. The company offers long-form gage certification upon request for those applications and industries that require it.

“Our customers are facing increased demands to produce precision parts with fast turn-around. It has always been our goal to provide support for our customers’ success, and with the new gage line, they have the tools they need to quickly check their parts,” said Kris Renner, director of operations at Slater Tools.

Popular shape gages, such as hexagon and six lobe (hexalobular), are available as standards in both inch and metric dimensions. Custom plug and ring gages are also available with rapid turnaround times. Both standard and custom inspection gages are available as Go/No-Go sets or can be purchased individually.

Slater Tools is the leading manufacturer of rotary and static broaches and tool holders that ensure precision and save customers time and money with hex, square, spline, serration, and other custom-shaped applications. Additionally, the company manufactures all Go/No-Go form gages, a full range of screw machine tooling, and spring-loaded male/female live centers. All products are designed, engineered, and manufactured in Clinton Township, Michigan, using state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques to provide a continuous stream of standard and custom solutions.
