Fowler Trimos V-600 Height Gage
For more than 30 years, Lorch
Microwave has been producing components for the electronics
and communications industries. The company assembles and
tunes filter parts, including cavity, discreet, waveguide,
tunable, transmit, ceramic, wireless and tabular filters.
Lorch's clients include Northrop Grumman Corp., Lockheed

Lorch was interested in a machine that could check all
