Thread Wire & 3 Wire Calibration Services for Plugs and Gages

Companies commonly use the three-wire method to determine thread gage or threaded part measurements and also to identify defective threads. We efficiently and affordably provide thread wire calibrations on the "best size" thread wires that accurately measure precision thread plug gages. Our high quality services support the accuracy of wire measuring practices, which can be utilized to calculate the critical pitch diameter of the gage or screw thread.

Both working thread gages and thread set plug gages can be evaluated using the three-wire process. For assurance of error-free measurement, the calibration of thread wires is conducted according to industry standards. Calibration helps to ensure accuracy during your three-wire thread inspections. It supports wear evaluation and measurement of thread plug gages. Transcat's dimensional calibration expertise can prove invaluable when thread wire accuracy will affect the quality of your parts, machinery and services.

Trusted Thread Wire Calibration Expertise

Do you routinely place wires in thread grooves to check external thread pitch diameter? If so, the calibration of these measuring wires ‚ that have been made to tight tolerances ‚ should be included in your routine calibration program. Our industry-renowned experts have designed leading processes for confirming the accuracy of wire for measurement.

  • We calibrate thread-measuring wires and wire sets from every manufacturer including Vermont Gage, Van Keuren and more.
  • Transcat offers ISO/IEC 17025-accredited thread wire services in several labs across North America.
  • Our metrology experts have developed processes based on a stringent dedication to accuracy and uncertainty control.
  • Transcat dimensional calibrations are ISO 9001-compliant, with true SI unit traceability through NIST.
  • We often triple-check unexpected dimensional results to ensure accurate, in-tolerance performance.
