Bowers Air1 & Air2


Air gauging on the shop floor is a simple yet robust method of measurement that offers a myriad of measurement capability but with the smallest of footprint in a busy crowded factory floor. The Bowers Air 1 (Single Channel) and Air 2 (Twin Channel) system boasts a user-friendly modern design and a touch screen for ease of use and readability.


For improved accuracy, the Bowers Air 1/2 benefits from two or three points of calibration, the minimum, the maximum and the mid: this offers greater linearity.

With no moving parts, the toughened glass touch screen requires no special maintenance making this device suitable for harsh working environments. Numerous connectivity options make the measuring process fast and user friendly.


  • Simplicity with USB connectors for laptops and PCs
  • Data output from this device is exceptionally straightforward
  • Fast reaction time of measurement, reduces the cycle times on machines
  • QR Code Configuration (contact us for recommended QR reader model)
  • Foot pedal for preset-clear-part characteristic-hold-data transfer
