Gagemaker products are used in many industries worldwide. Principal customers include oilfield equipment, and automotive manufacturers, as well as general machining companies. The company believes very strongly in the quality and reliability of its products, and most importantly in being responsive to its customers’ needs and requests.

Our designers and engineers hold several patents for gage designs and gauging processes. The investment in extensive research and development based on customer needs has heightened the company’s growth.
The company started the endeavor of gage design and manufacturing with the basic lead and taper gages, but cemented its legacy with the introduction of the patented MRP® crest diameter gage to the oilfield industry. The MRP® gage measures the crest diameter and ovality of tapered threads used on Oil Country Tubular Goods. The success of the MRP® gage is evident through its adoption by most major oil companies.
With the introduction of the MIC TRAC™, as an electronic adjustable gage setting master, launched Gagemaker into the area of gage calibration. The MIC TRAC‘s primary purpose was to preset the industry’s inspection gages. However, the MIC TRAC has grown and developed over the years to become a versatile measurement center for many different applications that many companies use as the basis of their quality programs.
Gagemaker’s CERTIFI™ gage calibration software works hand in hand with the MIC TRAC to complete all your gage calibration, certificate reporting, and data record requirements.
The introduction of Thread Element Measurement gages brought a new line of thread gages to the industry. The system used for measuring parallel threads (also known as general purpose or straight threads), incorporates thread roll gages and the TDWin™ software that calculates thread data and gage setting dimensions. The company’s expertise in measuring threads and their understanding of the threading process has made them an industry leader in the area of threading. Many companies have adopted this superior gauging method over ring and plug gauging.
The MIC 360™ Diameter Measurement Gage is an in-process gaging system that measures any large diameter greater than 5”. For almost two decades for early adopting customers, the gage has provided accurate, precise measurements and continues to do so today. Today, improvements in the gage will further aid current and future customers ensure they meet the increasing demands required in the various machining industruies.
