Measuring tools are used to determine the height of objects or for marking of items to be worked on. Height gages are among the most versatile measuring instruments in manufacturing. They measure the distance from a reference point, usually a surface plate, to the component or product.
Height gages range from simple surface gages for measurement transfer and marking to motorise digital height gages which have a powerful data calculating tool with auto scanning functions.
Cost and accuracy are both elements to consider when selecting height gages.
