What Makes Gage Assembly Stand Out In The Auto Thread Manufacturing Industry
We truly believe that Gage Assembly manufactures the best gages for auto parts in the marketplace today. Here are some of the main reasons that we have led the industry since 1953.
- Third Generation Family Business – Our company has always been family owned and we take great pride in the products that we produce. Our family’s reputation hangs in the balance with every gage that goes out the door.
- Specialized Steel – We use graphitic tool steel for a superior quality product and a much longer gage life. Our auto thread gages are also both heat and cold treated to ensure outstanding stability.
- Hard Chrome Plating – Our plating process is designed to promote longer wear and durability. We are confident that our car thread gages are the most rugged in the industry.
- Root Relief – Our thread gages for the auto industry are root relieved for greater accuracy and a longer life. Root relief assures that the flanks of thread are all making proper contact.
