Ball Gages

precision ball gages

Ball Gages are manufactured in a wide variety of designs for all inspection applications. Some are as simple as a loose ball, and others are balls mounted on stems. Go and No-Go ball gages are made to order in any size, with or without handles.
For pricing and details please see: Ball Gage Catalog

Balls for Ball Sizing

ball gage, measurement
Call us at (800) 322-5832 for a current stock check

Balls for Ball Sizing is the process of forcing an oversized ball through the inside diameter of a metal part. It will increase the inside diameter and greatly improve the surface texture of the part. It is commonly used to assure an inside diameter size in elbows of tubing.
See: Report on Ball Sizing
See: Sapphire Oil

Balwands

The Ballwand

Balwands consist of a ball with a flatted area, mounted on a shaft. They are used to measure the distance or gap between two surfaces. They are excellent for measuring the flatness of large parts. Two Balwands of the proper diameters create a go and no-go situation.
See: Tech Data Sheet: #17 & Ball Gage Catalog.

Calibration Spheres, Precise and Ultra Precise

Precise and Ultra Precise Calibration Spheres are supplied so customers can build their own devices for calibration and inspection applications. Three sphere types are available: polished solid sphere, the sphere with a hole or the sphere with a satin finish (usually for vision systems). The UB series is Ultra Precise, the PB series is Precise, and the SAT items are Satin Finished.

The Cantilever Ball Bar (Dumbbell)

Cantilever Ball Bar with CMM probe

The Cantilever Ball Bar (Dumbbell) is the most advanced Ball Bar (Dumbbell) designed. It has two additional spheres located just behind each master sphere. This second set of spheres are used as a means to rigidly support the Ball Bar (Dumbbell) near the ends. This support virtually eliminates any bending due to the contact force of the measuring probe. The Cantilevered Ball Bar (Dumbbell) is used with the Way Out Ball Bar (Dumbbell) Support.

Sphericity

Operator working at Talyrond machine (22601 bytes) This is a ( bad ) example of the polar chart produced on the Talyrond. The inner polylobular trace was made from a competitor's silicon nitride ball that was rated by them as a grade 10. The outer trace was made from a very good quality ball.

Sphericity - Measuring the roundness of a ball is no problem using the Talyrond system. This system is our fastest and most accurate method of measuring roundness. The ball being inspected remains at rest on the table while the test probe is rotated accurately around it. A permanent polar chart recording is produced. The overall accuracy of this machine is one millionth of an inch. The calibration is verified by standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Tri Mount

The Tri-mount Collar is used to hold three or more separate Ball Bars (Dumbbells) all at the same time, on the anchor or the Heavy Duty Stand. No hand contact with the Ball Bars (Dumbbells) by the calibration technician is required, and three different positions can be set at once. This is important because the Ball Bars (Dumbbells) are rather long devices which may be sensitive to temperature change.
