MicroForm Custom Large Capacity Roundness Gage for Fives Giddings & Lewis

According to the Quality Team at Fives Giddings & Lewis, “At Fives Giddings & Lewis, we have always prided ourselves in inspecting part pieces and assemblies to an extremely high degree of accuracy.”

Over the years they have employed high-speed spindle assemblies and precise part pieces to ensure that goal was continually achieved.

The company purchased a customized ABTech MicroForm roundness gage and it exceeded their expectations. Still, with many decades of experience in metrology, Fives Giddings & Lewis was always seeking ways to improve the performance of their products. So naturally, they continually thought about how a form gage could be made to perform better and more efficiently.

Over the years quite a few creative ideas on improving gages were generated by the quality team. Shortly after purchasing the ABTech system they approached us and shared some novel suggestions on potential software and hardware changes. Given we pride ourselves on working closely with our customers to help address all their needs, we welcomed the ideas and incorporated them within our standard MicroForm platform. The team at Fives Giddings & Lewis thought our willingness and ability to successfully implement their enhancement ideas was “especially noteworthy.” “Thanks again for a job well done.”

At ABTech we strive for these win-win relationships because they help fuel our continued success while allowing our customers – in this case Fives Giddings & Lewis – to stay on the leading edge in quality.
