Thread Check Inc. has introduced the rotary thread inspection tool, which inspects screw threads for functional size and depth faster than conventional methods.
The power-driven thread gage is designed to eliminate operator hand and arm fatigue and repetitive motion injuries as the rotary thread inspection tool’s specially designed motor turns the gage to safely check internal screw threads. The instrument features a portable and ergonomic design that is made for industrial use. The instrument is supplied with high performance rechargeable NIMH “quick change” batteries that provide long hours of operation. The unit includes a feature that allows a setting of a specified thread gage depth and then automatically reverses out of the thread when the gage has reached the specified depth. The proper depth is confirmed by a green-light indicator.
The inspection tool uses standard or specially designed taperlock style thread plug gages that can be easily changed for multiple jobs.
