Alexander Heucke, Manufacturing Engineer at National Steel Rule said, “The Acu-Gage has allowed us to examine our products and tooling like never before. We’re now able to identify and correct potential problems before they are even visible to the naked eye. We’re using our machine for incoming inspection, quality control and product R & D.”
