RPTS meets the need for higher accuracy and more frequent calibration of thread plug and thread ring gages.
Thread plug and thread ring gages are used to check measurement of pitch and diameter of threaded items. Many companies are seeing costly mistakes and product recall due to these gages giving an incorrect measurement. To prevent these mistakes companies are requiring frequent calibration at higher accuracy to ensure the product delivered to the customer is an efficient and accurate tool.
RPTS recommends thread plug, thread ring gages and any precision instruments be calibrated by an accredited calibration laboratory with long form certification traceable to N.I.S.T. (National Institute and Technology) to ensure all gages meet the required industry standard. It is critical that these gages are calibrated on a regular cycle. This cycle depends on the amount of use and if the thread plug and thread ring gages that have been dropped or impacted. RPTS suggests an annual calibration, setting a date every year to have your gages calibrated.
Robb Precision Tool Services is an A2LA Accredited Calibration Laboratory that follows ANSI/ISO/IEC17025:2000 and will provide a long form calibration certificate traceable to N.I.S.T. standards for all thread plug and thread ring. A long form certificate lists in detail all of the characteristics needed to ensure conformance. All thread plug and thread ring gages are calibrated by a trained technician in temperature controlled laboratory.

Robb Precision Tool Services has recently purchased an Optical Comparator which will expand their extensive calibration capabilities to include Radius Gages, Thread Pitch Gages, Thread Mic Standards and other various other gages.
An Optical Comparator is an inspection machine that projects magnified images up to 50x its actual size. The images are put onto a glass screen using illumination sources, lenses and mirrors giving a 2-D measurement. This process allows the technician to measure using the latest technology and error free inspection giving a detailed calibration certification, conforming to the International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and traceable to NIST.
The Optical Comparator also allows the technicians to see scratches, indentations and various imperfections. Many calibration laboratories use the general measurement of a caliper or micrometer, using this method it is impossible to see these imperfections and can be a costly and timely mistake.
If the reference gage is out of tolerance and cannot be calibrated, a new gage is necessary. Robb Precision Tool is a distributor for Mitutoyo USA and can replace the gage, saving time and money.
Robert Robb, owner “We started to receive gages from other calibration labs that were not using an optical comparator, only their trained eye and a caliper. Using this process it is impossible give an accurate reading. We purchased the comparator to give our customers a correct and detailed certification.”

What is a Torque Tester?
A torque tester is used as a quality control device to test or calibrate torque controlled tools. This includes electronic torque wrenches, click torque wrenches, dial torque wrenches, electric screwdrivers, air screwdrivers, pulse tools, cordless screwdrivers, nutrunners, and torque screwdrivers
Robb Precision Tool Services conducted one day training at Perkins Pacific.
Robert Robb, owner of RPTS held one day training on correct use of the CDI Digital Torque Tester at Perkins Pacific, Ridgefield, WA.
To ensure safety and reliability of torque wrenches and torque instruments it is essential the technicians are educated on proper use. Using a quality torque tester correctly makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Preventing scrapped work, product recall or injury.
Robert Robb, owner. ” Customers want it quick and easy to check for accuracy of their torque wrenches, but don’t know the correct way to use the torque tester. I saw the need for educating the technicians and I decided to offer to them and train the employees how to use it correcly. ”
A representative from our A2LA certified laboratory will perform the training from mounting the tester correctly to downloading the stored torque data to the PC. They will receive a certification of completion as an authorized person to test and calibrate torque instruments, including torque wrenches, manufactured by Snap-on/CDI.

What is A2LA ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Calibration?
A2LA stands for the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation. It is a nonprofit 3rd party institution that accredits calibration labs and preforms thorough assessment of all factors of testing and calibration to the ISO 17025 standard. A2LA laboratories are audited regularly to ensure their continued compliance with requirements and to check that their standard of operation is being maintained. Lab technicians may be required to take part in comprehensive and ongoing intense testing to ensure the most recent methods are being followed.
Is the most important standard for calibration and testing laboratories around the world. Laboratories that are accredited to this international standard are required to include factors which determine the correctness and reliability of the tests and calibrations preformed in the laboratory by a qualified technician. Factors that are included are environment control; equipment and measurement traceability; testing methodology; and reporting of test and calibration results.
The benefits of A2LA ISO/IEC 17025 certification:
- To ensure that calibration and testing are accurate and reliable.
- Laboratories comply with internationally recognized standard.
- Increase confidence in Testing and Calibration.
- Save costs on an incorrect indication. Which can cause rework, scrapped product , product recall or injury.
Robb Precision Tool is an accredited A2LA ISO/IEC 17025 laboratory.
