The height gauge line provided by Qualitest has height gauges that are enabled with a motorized movement allowing for rapid job mode. The LCD display can be adjusted for comfortable viewing. USB and RS232 serial ports that are built into each height gauge allow for easy data transfer. Each gauge is able to take multiple reference points. There is an optional printer attachment for each height gauge.

We offers cost effective, quality solutions to external, depth and height measurement problems. Having translated the Bowers Group ethos of accuracy, quality, ease of use and value for money into our now extremely comprehensive range of gauges, we are the choice for measuring instruments to many engineering and manufacturing companies across the globe.

We offers height gauges which accurately measures the distance from the reference surface to some feature of a part, and can do so with exceptional accuracy. Qualitest offers two range of height gages Precihite Ultra - Height Gauge and OptiHite - Height Gauge . The top-of-the-line Precihite Ultra - Height Gauge is rich in features and exceptionally accurate. Our OptiHite - Height Gauge are still preferred by many for their exceptional accuracy. Both Height Gauges offer the highest level of accuracy, attachments and accessories are also available.

Height gauges serve a variety of use. Primarily it is used to measure distances, lengths and various other dimensions. Height Gauges are essential tools to ensure that materials to be worked on or machined are working with starting materials of uniform dimensions. These gauges can also be used to check whether finished products have the right specifications.

These measuring tools are used in metalworking or metrology to either set or measure vertical distances; the pointer is sharpened to allow it to act as a scriber and assist in marking out work pieces. Devices similar in concept, with lower resolutions, are used in health care settings (health clinics, surgeries) to find the height of people, in which context they are called stadiometers.

In the simplest sense, gauges are devices used to take a measurement of something. You can use a gauge to test angle, depth, contour, height, diameter, radius, pitch, taper or gap. For example feeler gauges can be used to check the gap in a spark plug.
