Taperlock thread plug gages are used to check the accuracy and dimension of parts that require high tolerances and a need for great accuracy, such as those used in the medical, automotive, oil/gas and aerospace industries.
A thread plug gage measures the dimensions of a part by entering or not entering the internal thread (inside the hole of a part as required).The Go end should engage and the Not Go(NoGo) end should not engage the part. This is known as fixed limit gaging.
Taperlock style (000 to 1.5 inches diameter sizes only): These gages have a tapered shank behind the threaded portion. They are firmly pressed into an aluminum handle that has a matched tapered hole. New gage members can be inserted into the existing handle.
