In Process Gaging

Birdsall Tool & Gage can help with design of gaging systems and tooling requirements. We place over 40 years of non-production manufacturing experience into the design and development process to insure that the product that you need designed exhibits reliability, durability, and maintainability.

We build-to-print or design & build dial/digital indicator or electronic fixture gages, concentricity gages, dimensional gages, gage masters, and hole location gages to check a wide range of features and/or feature sizes. We provide, upon request, concept drawings and sketches with all Design and Build Gage quotes.

Functional Gaging

Go/no-go gages are still needed for those less critical features that need to be verified in a cost effective way. We also build functional fixture gages as well to check max material type G.D.&T. notes.

Our skilled tool and gage makers are all trained in the latest applications and interpretations of G.D.&T. standards. Customer prints with G.D.&T. notes actually save time and money when they come to purchasing gages, because these notes are the road map to making gages or check fixtures.
