The Modular Precisionaire column instrument is industry's most accurate, dependable, and widely accepted air gage instrument. While its truly modular design is adapted to the same proven principles used for many years, today's models are improved and simplified for increased reliability and operator convenience. Dramatically lower costs 
All gaging systems using Precisionaire Instruments can accurately inspect up to 40 or more part dimensions in the same time it takes to check one dimension with a conventional gage. Side-by-side columns form a "float graph" which can be viewed instantly. Conditions and relationships such as average diameter, camber, squareness and other measurements which 
are extremely difficult to check on other instruments are readily measured by Precisionaire systems. With dependable air gaging, scrap is reduced, no usable parts are rejected and many out-of-tolerance parts are salvageable. Inspection time is shortened, so overall production
time is reduced and machining processes can be brought under control more quickly. Costly, high-skill man hours can be better utilized, as air gaging requires a minimum of operator training and skill. Finally, air gage size-sensing elements outlast conventional limit-type gages many times, and, unlike many ordinary gaging methods, air gaging allows easy compensation for gage wear.
The new P-400 DRO is an advanced metrology display—and much more. Combined with an air/electronic converter and air gage tooling or LVDTs from Precision Gage & Tool, it’s a high-accuracy, economical gaging instrument ideal for applications requiring up to eight discrete inputs. With intuitive visual displays, helpful audio cues and user-defined formulas, the P-400 DRO reports dynamic min/max measurements, provides SPC analysis from an integrated database and includes connectivity to PCs and other peripherals. Get visual feedback from an easy-to-read, familiar interface with standard color cues and a choice of graphical formats, including bar diagrams, histograms and dial indicators. The P-400 instantly informs operators of pass/fail performance details for critical part dimensions. USB and RS-232 connectivity allows users to share data throughout quality and process control systems, and provides program storage capability

Standard thru type, steel and chrome-plated airings range in size from .240 thru 6.010 diameters. Standard fixed "C" type airsnaps in sizes from .500 thru 4.500 are available. Standard Masters A full compliment of A.G.D. Standard master rings & disks, both steel and chrome, class X and XX are available along with other special masters for the calibration of standard products. Electronic Gaging Cartridges A full line of linear variable differential transducers (LVDT'S) features standard long, threaded, standard short, and right angle units, in various ranges and with choices of gaging tips.
Paper Gages (A) The smoothness and porosity of paper and similar materials can be easily checked with Sheffield's smoothness and porosimeter gages. Radial Play Gages (B) Sheffield Radial Internal Clearance gages are the industry standard. Simplified adjustments speed the change-over from one bearing to another. Models for bore sizes between 8mm and 318mm. Fiber Gages (C) Micronaire® air gage instruments, both portable and with separate fiber compression chamber, are standard for the inspection of cotton, wool, fiberglass and similar materials. Flatness Gages (D) Stone flatness gages in four different sizes can be furnished for use with the P-400 DRO Metrology Display.
