2003 Optical Gages Directory

Welcome to Quality Digest’s 2003 Optical Gages Directory. Instruments that fall under the category of “optical gage” are vast and varied. From a simple shadowgraph used to measure basic dimensions to video microscopes with the capability of capturing hundreds of parts at extremely close range, optical gages are common in shop floor environments.

One tool that has gained popularity during the last few years is the video measurement system. An alternative to traditional contact measurement systems, these instruments combine the strengths of optical comparators, noncontact coordinate measuring machines and microscopes to offer the complete solution that manufacturers seek.

Sometimes, however, all you need is a reliable optical comparator. Used in manufacturing for more than 50 years, this old standard has survived years of technological progress by doing its job fast and dependably.

Whether you’re in need of a video measurement system, optical comparator, toolmaker’s microscope, or anything in between, you’ll find it within this guide.

What follows is basic contact information (i.e., address, phone and fax numbers, and Web site address) for each company that replied to our requests for information. To ensure accuracy, we’ve only included companies that have recently updated or confirmed our database information.

For more information, including specific product descriptions and specs, visit www.qualitydigest.com/directories.

As with all of our directories, this guide is intended only to provide readers with helpful information. Quality Digest hasn’t evaluated, nor do we endorse, any of the products or manufacturers listed in this guide.

We appreciate any feedback you might have on our directories. If you have a suggestion for how we can improve this directory next year, e-mail it to Directories.
