Carbide Gages and Masters


GLE-Precision manufactures carbide gages and masters to A.G.D. standard dimensions in tolerance classes XXX, XX, X, Y, and Z. Standard configurations of  gaging products includes Reversible, TaperLock, Tri-Lock, and Inserted Ring; GLE also manufactures special gages and masters to customers’ prints.

Special Gaging

Some examples of special gages include true position (concentricity) plugs and rings, gage Elements, flat gages, paddle gages, ammunition gages, twin ring gages, master setting discs and rings, gage pins and other precision elements for inspection applications.  Send one of our sales team members your prints and we will put together a proposal for your make-to-print gage.

Carbide Plug Gages

Is your application relating to inspecting a hole?  GLE manufactures plug gages in sizes from .002″ (.127mm) to 2.511″ (63.78mm), with special applications smaller and larger.  Typical plug gage materials include carbide, steel and ceramic.  Contact us to help determine what material is right for your application.

Carbide Ring Gages

Carbide inserted ring gages are manufactured in sizes from .010″ (.254mm) to 4.011″ (101.88mm), with special applications smaller and larger.

The protective outer jackets of larger ring gages, 2.00″ (50.8mm) in diameter and up, previously of steel, are now composed of a special, rigid nylon material that better complements carbide. The gages are lighter in weight and more stable because the new outer jacket, acting as an insulator, resists the transfer of external heat to the carbide gaging element.


Carbide Trilock Gages

Do you have a drilled hole you are trying to inspect?  Carbide trilock gages are manufacturered to standard dimensions in tolerances classes XXX, XX, X, Y and Z. Sizes range from .725” (18.415mm) to 2.510” (63.75mm), with special applications for larger sizes.  GLE-Precision can provide Go, No-go and Master members based on your need.

Carbide Master Setting Disc

Master setting discs are available in diameters from .010″ (.254mm) up to 4.011″ (101.88mm) and larger. These are carbide OD gages; tolerances are most commonly applied bilaterally.
