Thread Measuring

Innovative thread measuring equipment for global industry

  • Functional PD Thread Gauges
    The Gagemaker PG-6000 and RG-7000 Series gauges measure diameters of internal, and external threads respectively. Both series of these functional diameter gauges inspects the effects of all thread element variations and report deviations. The gauges must be preset to a Nominal predetermined dimension using gauge blocks, micrometers, or the MIC TRAC measurement centre.

  • Thread Gauging
    XT Threads - The Best Way to Measure Internal Thread Diameters As the world’s leading bore gauge manufacturer, we offer a range of both standard and bespoke solutions for precision thread diameter measurement. Individual Thread Gauging Heads

    • M4 – M300 (metric)
    • No8 – 12” (imperial) • Metric, UN, Buttress, Acme, Trapezoidal, Ball screw and non-standard forms available
    • Left and right handed available
    • 2 Point or 3 Point available
    • Very rapid measurement of threads
    • Reduce machining time by giving the operator an actual measurement when forming the thread
    • Negates the need for many different hard gauges, incl. pre/post plate, pre/post H/T, different classes, etc. Therefore annual re-calibration costs reduced massively
    • Effective (Functional), Pitch & Major measurement
    • Calibrate from thread rings (Plain ring for Major Diameter)
    • Rings marked with actual PD

    Each of these application heads can be fitted directly to our Bluetooth XT range of internal micrometers in seconds for fast, efficient use with incredibly accurate results that can be digitally recorded.

  • TDWIN Taper Thread Disk Software
    Gagemaker's TDWIN TAPER software program produces dimensional drawings and inspection data for API downhole tubular connectors based on the most current industry standards. Everything you need to machine, inspect, and document tubular connection threads is available in this convenient software program. TDWIN TAPER provides easy access to information for both preferred and non-preferred Rotary Shouldered Connections, Tubing and Casing Connections, and any combination of Crossover. The program offers standard connection types and sizes. TDWIN TAPER displays connection drawings, inspection gauge information and setup and inspection reports. The software displays printable drawings suitable for manufacturing that follow ASME Y14.5 standards for industry compatibility. Print gauge setup and inspection reports with your company logo and work order information. The program also offers the choice to save reports and jobs for future reference. Features • Follows API Specification 7.2, Dec. 2008, for Rotary Shouldered Connections • Follows API Specification 5B, Oct. 2008, for Tubing and Casing Connections • Presents "preferred" connections as well as interchangeable and obsolete connections • Organises data compatible with API and industry knowledge offered by resources such as Smith, Joy, and Hughes • Displays Gagemaker style thread gauges and gauge setting information • Configures and prints reference drawings for manufacturing including; standard pin/box/coupling, pin/box blanking, pin/box • Relief groove, box modified bore-back relief, special clearance couplings, and SR grooved couplings • Produces gauge setup reports for tubing, casing, RSC, and crossover combinations • Provides inspection reports for all connection configurations selected • Customises reports with your company logo • Saves reports to job files and recalls them for future reference • Provides web links to locate and purchase necessary gauges and standards

  • MRP Air Pitch Diameter & Ovality Gauges
    Gagemaker have introduced the MRP® AIR Crest Diameter Carbon Fibre Gauge, which is stronger, lighter and more accurate than ever, all of this is completed with no damaging rails locking them into place. All of the MRP series of Pitch diameter gauges measures internal and external pitch diameters of tapered threaded connectors. The gauges use two pivoting thread shoes that rest on the crests of the threads. Variation in diameter is detected by the indicator readout. The MRP gauges are preset to size before inspecting parts. A variety of setting standards are available. Alternatively the MIC TRAC setting system can be used.

  • Tubing and Casing Taper Setting Blocks - Mic Trac
    The Gagemaker MIC TRAC is a multi-use gauge setting system. The system sets or zeros most gauges with the use of interchangeable anvils or blocks. Standard resolution of base unit is 0.00005". Accuracies range from +/- 0.0001" to +/- 0.0004". The MIC TRAC is also available as a multi-use gauge calibration system. These MIC TRACs incorporate the ForeLok™ feature to provide a constant anvil force that improves repeatability from operator to operator. Please ask the Bowers sales team for details.
