The AML Series of pin gauges, that comes with a 1-cm-long maintenance line as a wear indicator and is available in standard sizes of 3.00 mm. to 10.00 mm. and a +/- 0.8 micron tolerance. The SPA Series and AML Series of pin gauges from SK (Niigata Seiki Co.,Ltd.) demonstrate the company’s one-step-ahead advancement that benefits users in inspecting hole sizes through the use of the wear indicator.
