ROK-IT Bore Gauges
ROK-IT gauges are truly spherical - part of a ball. They can be presented to the bore at any angle without struggling for alignment, and rocked over centre to check size.
When using a ROK-IT, there is no discernible friction, so you really can gauge 'size for size' - unlike conventional gauges where excessive friction can use a big chunk of the workpiece tolerance just to push the GO end into the bore. In other words, a conventional plug gauge can reject good components. ROK-IT doesn't.
The Big Advantages
At Hammond & Company, international leaders in the field of Deep Hole Drilling, we naturally know a lot about the machining and measuring of bores.
The problems associated with conventional plug gauges are all too familiar - struggling for alignment, time wasted removing a jammed gauge - resultant damage to both gauge and workpiece. ROK-IT gauges make these issues a thing of the past.
No jamming or swelling in the bore - If the 'GO' end rocks over centre and the 'NOGO' stops, the bore is within tolerance. Fast and simple.
Exceptional gauge life - less friction means less wear.
Versatility - Instantly reveals conditions of ovality, barrelling and taper. Even back taper in a blind bore.
Eighty per cent lighter - we dispensed with unnecessary metal so you dispense with unnecessary effort.
Range Of Products
ROK-IT gauges can be purchased as either double ended 'GO' and 'NOGO' with a standard 100mm ( 4in ) handle, or in the larger diameters often with single ended handles also 100mm long.
ROK-IT gauges below 16mm ( 0.630 in ) diameter are supplied with a 'taperlock' design handle, giving an effective length of 90mm ( 3 1/2 in )
Longer handles can be supplied upon request. However if the bore is very long we can supply an articulated 'deep bore' handle to the length required.
ROK-IT gauges over 300mm ( 12 ins ) in diameter will be supplied in the single ended design, but with two handles equi-spaced for ease of use.
Unless otherwise specified, ROK-IT gauges are manufactured to the following standards for gauge manufacturing and wear tolerance.
UKAS and in-house certification is available.
