Design & Manufacture of a Male Thread Gauge

Design & Manufacture of a Male Thread Gauge


Kent Machine (KM) was selected by a Collierville, TN firm to create the male thread gauge outlined below. Customer-provided specifications and CAD drawings were used as a foundation for supplemental mechanical design, followed by a component sourcing phase. Tool steel was selected because it offers the surface harness necessary for this gauge application. The product application required high-accuracy machining; Kent Machine utilized their advanced machining capabilities which included precision turning, milling, and grinding, to achieve the required ±0.008 mm tolerances.

The part was then heat treated to impart a 58 to 62 Rockwell hardness, which is critical to the thread gauges long term accuracy. Subsequent assembly and ...
