Versatile, tough, precise: process-control measurement at its best.
Control Gaging invented the "quick setup" gage head more than 30 years ago, slashing gage changeover time from 20 minutes to 30 seconds. Some of the gages built then are still holding close tolerances today.
That combination of simplicity, accuracy and durability has been the relentless target of our design teams ever since. On that basis we have been recognized, by users and competitors alike, as leaders in the process-control gaging industry.
The WG2 Gage Head is a fifth-generation product and has incorporated steady advances in all areas of the design: bearing structure, corrosion resistance, coolant seals, setup and retract mechanism reliability, crash-resistance, easy-access adjustable features, repairability, and repeatability — all in a compact form for tight tooling spaces.
To set up the WG2, hold the lever in the "setup" position, squeeze the gage fingers into contact with an on-size workpiece, and then release the lever. In most applications, setup can be accomplished in less than 30 seconds.
- Quick Setup
- Stainless Steel Body
- ID or OD capable
- .0004mm repeatability @ 5.15 sigma
