Mahr Inc. extended the company’s long-standing technology partnership with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) for another three years. This partnership ensures the quality of designs for its racing teams through the use of metrology. Over the last 16 years, the company has delivered parts to power one of today’s most successful racing teams.

JGR’s 400,000-square-foot race shop handles the manufacturing of 90 percent of the race car and motorcycle parts and pieces with almost 2,000 different parts and pieces. The Joe Gibbs Racing team leverages Mahr’s precision measurement tools to make sure all parts and pieces are being manufactured properly.

JGR’s metrology lab features Mahr hand tools such as micrometers and calipers at all 35 stations. Precision measurement tools including the MarForm MMQ 400 Universal Form Measuring Machines are used to check valves, and the MarForm Primar is deployed to evaluate cranks and cams. Engineers use MarShaft Scope 250 and optical shaft measuring machines, MarSurf XR20 systems for the evaluation of roughness and MarSurf XC20 systems for evaluation of contour profiles on a variety of parts. Mahr equipment is also instrumental in evaluating critical but hard-to-reach areas in the engine.
