Founder Jack Brown formed the Michigan based Control Gaging Inc. in 1972 to address an industry need for more sophisticated instruments to control automatic machinery and produce higher quality products.
Even then, Control Gaging's industrial pioneer recognized the need to improve performance and reduce setup time.
He patented the world's first quick setup gagehead that took in-process gaging to a new level of reliability and efficiency.
For over 40 years since the first innovation, Control Gaging has gained international respect by responding to the diverse needs of the machining industry with innovative gaging solutions.
We know from experience, that automatic control of your machining process through real-time measurement can cut your production costs through improved productivity and quality.
Today's highly competitive marketplace requires reliable gaging systems. Control Gaging responds to your needs with gages that are easy to setup, produce precise measurements and are extremely reliable.
