The latest refinement of Control Gaging's classic quick-setup, thru-spindle gage head is the Model 88M. "Durability" means more to us than the proven ruggedness of our gages in the field: it also means that our products remain leaders in their markets through cont inuous design and performance improvement.

The 88M is specifically designed to be installed inside the workhead spindle of a high-production internal grinding machine. High-pressure coolant flow and continuous vibration make this one of the harshest of all in-process gaging environments. It is also a difficult application for gage contact setup.

Control Gaging's exclusive clutch mechanism makes manual setup from the front of the chuck easy and quick, without removing the gage from the spindle. Especially for short run parts, this feature can save significantly on changeover costs.

The improved gage design incorporates specific advances based on feedback from customers and service personnel: bearing structure, cable seal ing, ret ract mechanism reliability, and repairability have all been enhanced for performance improvement and life-cycle cost reduction.
