Custom Gaging

Over 50 years, we have provided solutions to industries including energy, aerospace, automotive, food packaging, high-technology plastics, medical components, and to NASA and other government agencies.

After we determine that no 'off-the-shelf" product is applicable, our engineers begin a dialog with the company’s staff to develop a tool for the specific task -- a process to understand the application in detail and evaluate various approaches. When a solution is found that meets the requirements to the full satisfaction of our customer. Then, through design, prototype machining and testing, the final product specification is completed.

From Problem to Innovation to Solution

The resulting special product usually involves highly specialized fixturing combined with a Starrett measuring tool component -- most often an electronic or dial indicator head or a micrometer head.

Some solutions have included contributions from parts of Starrett beyond the Athol, MA Special Gage Division location -- Webber Gage in Ohio, Tru-Stone Granite in Minnesota or Kinemetric Engineering in California. At the conclusion of the process, something that could not be measured is measured, and a difficult problem is transformed into an innovative, often elegant solution.

Special Order

Some applications require variations on our standard products. For those orders, we have a Special Order Department that is able to meet your needs.
