Guide to Returning for Calibration or Repair
It is always best to return equipment in its original case and packaging. If you no longer have the original carton or gage case, always package gages securely in a carton and then secure in a second carton. If the gage has a sliding member, always lock the member in a secure position prior to placing in a carton. Loose components in a carton will damage the product in shipment and the cost of repair will be more. Most shipments get turned upside down and often times dropped during shipment, so plan to package for the worst conditions.
If all of information on the request form is not included, expect a delay in the repair or calibration process.
Trade-In Policy for Dial Indicators
Gagemaker has a “Trade-In Program” for broken dial indicators that meet a certain criteria. Basically, a customer sends the broken indicator to Houston where Gagemaker can evaluate the damage and determine the most effective and efficient solution. If the repair can be made in a timely manner, then a quote is issued which outlines the repair cost and estimated turnaround time. If the repair is extensive, then a quote is issued which outlines a special “trade in” price to replace the indicator with a new one immediately.
Basic Gage Care
- Keep all unprotected metal surfaces coated with light oil.
- Avoid dropping the gage or subjecting it to any vibration or impact.
- Keep the gage dry and away from any machine coolant spray.
- Do not force the movement of any of the mechanical parts. The mechanics are designed to move freely.
- Keep the indicator face clean.
- Never oil the indicator, as the oil will attract dirt and dust
