At Control 2011, Germany, Bowers Metrology launched the Microgauge, a two-point bore gauging system designed to accurately measure small bores from 1 to 6mm in size.

Featuring an integral digital readout, the Microgauge’s dimensions are approximately the same as a ballpoint pen.

Bowers claims the gauge could not be easier to use.

The action of locating the gauge’s hard-chromed, spherical contact points into the bore to be measured causes a mechanical force to be transferred to the gauge’s digital readout unit.

This action instantaneously causes the bore’s size to be displayed on the unit’s high-visibility LCD readout.

Because the Microgauge benefits from two-point localised contact with the bore to be measured, further bore features, such as ovality, taper and barrelling, can also be evaluated.

Access to the new bore gauge’s functions, including set/calibrate, metric/inch conversion and choice of 0.010mm or 0.001mm resolutions, is via two buttons.

Data transfer can be carried out via Proximity-RS232 or Proximity-USB outputs.

As with all Bowers bore-gauging products, the Microgauge system is available as an individual instrument or as a set, encompassing a selection of heads and setting rings, to allow a range of sizes to be measured.

Enabling the Microgauge to be included on users’ gauge calibrations systems and utilised from the day of delivery, all setting rings are supplied with traceable UKAS certification as standard.
