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 graphic engraving of the part completed the manufacturing phase. Each of the two finished pieces were subject to stringent quality measures such as extensive functionality testing.

This project exemplifies Kent Machine's ability to design and fabricate precision products, offering customers a reliable low cost solution. Contact Kent Machine for more information on what they can do to address your engineering design and fabrication needs.
