It is hard to think of a device or equipment that does not have screws, nuts and bolts. Anything that you lay your hands on if it is a manufactured product then the chances are that it will have screws, nuts and bolts to hold things together. If you are manufacturing any of these devices or components with threaded parts or components then it is important that these threaded parts are designed to specifications and that they are accurate in terms of the thread sizes.
While manufacturing threaded components errors are bound to be present in the thread sizes due to various reasons. If these deviations or errors are within the tolerance levels then the product could be passed through the QC or Quality Check. If the thread sizes are larger or smaller than the acceptable tolerance levels then they will have to be rejected or else there would be issues in the assembly department. Learning about these errors in the assembly department would disrupt the process and lot of resources would be wasted. So these rejects should not reach the assembly department and should be filtered out in the QC process. How do you check the thread sizes of the nuts and bolts and other threaded components that you are manufacturing? There are thread gauges to take care of this.
These are nothing but tools that are used as a standard and they will have two parts one is ‘Go’ and another is ‘No-Go’. All the threaded components should pass both ‘Go’ and ‘No-Go’ tests. Only then it should get past QC. As you can see that these thread gauges are very basic inspection tools but at the same time they are very important tools. Whether you need UN thread gauges or other types of thread gauges, it is important that you identify the best manufacturers to take care of your needs. You cannot compromise on the quality factor on the inspection tool they need to be 100% accurate and you should be able to rely on these tools without any hesitation. Therefore making the right choices is very important here and you should not try to cut corners in this regard.
If you want to keep the costs low when ordering your ACME thread gauges look for Chinese suppliers and you can have them imported from China which will prove to be highly cost effective way of sourcing your thread gauges. When ordering your thread gauges after establishing the quality, go for larger orders so that you can have adequate stocks to last long. This will avoid the need to unnecessarily go through long and tedious importing process. Before you place the orders for these thread gauges try to invest enough time to screen your suppliers so that you do not have to worry about the quality of the gauges or about their integrity. You will be wasting a lot of time if you fail to screen your suppliers correctly right at the start.
