Features & Benefits

The LGB linear gage is ideal for general measurements and its compact size allows for installation into areas where space is limited.  High precision ball bearings in the spindle guide provides extremely smooth movements and the low measuring force delivers accurate measurements on an array of materials.  The built-in clamp nut feature offers easy mounting to optional brackets or custom fixtures.
