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.
2100 196th ST SW #144
Lynnwood, WA 98036
Robb Precision Tool Services visits Mitutoyo America, Los Angeles for the latest electronic components in precision metrology.
- To implement the new technology Robb Precision Tool Services received educational training at Mitutoyo, the leader in measuring instruments and metrological technology.
- RPTS knows the growing need for higher precision, faster data results, and the ability to store statistics. Robb Precision Tool Services wanted their technicians to have hands on education of these new tools.
- The techs were educated on 2D Linear Height gages, Portable Roughness testers,Digital Micrometers and Calipers, Digital Indicators, Depth Measurement systems, Optical Comparators and Vision Systems, Calibration Equipment and many more.
- The technicians were also introduced to the new Wireless Communication System that can be used on any tool that provides Digimatic data output. Such as, the Digimatic Caliper,Digimatic Micrometer, Digimatic Indicator and Digimatic Height Gauge. The Wireless system will eliminate the need for data cables when sending measurements to a PC. This new technology will make it easier, smoother and more efficient without the cumbersome data cables.
Robert Robb, owner of Robb Precision Tool Services Inc.
“As the requirements for greater accuracy of precision tools are expected, Mitotoyo is meeting these demands. I have had a relationship with Mitutoyo for over 20 years and trust their knowledge and products.”
As a calibration and repair lab, Robb Precision Tool Services understands the need for continued education. With the higher need for accuracy, training in these new technologies is essential to ensure accurate repair and calibration.

This new line of Electronic Torque Wrenches from CDI Torque Products
is truly revolutionary. They unite torque and angle in a single mode
to provide the most accurate and fastest way to tighten fasteners in
a sequence. In addition to the LED indicator lights, an audible beep
and handle vibration alert you when target torque is achieved.
The rugged all-steel construction is designed to stand up to even
the toughest work conditions. Computorq SG Torque Wrenches are
available with a 1/4″, 3/8″ or 1/2″ drive flex head or a 3/4″ drive fixed
head—all with an easy-to-use plug and play software solution and
highly programmable features.
CDI Torque Products, a Snap-on company is the largest private labeled torque manufacturer in the world. CDI Torque Products have the same accuracy and are assembled right alongside the Snap-On wrenches.

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.”
Robb Precision Tool Services is an A2LA accredited calibration lab which follows the International standard ANSI/ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and traceable to NIST. Specializing in certification, repair and sales of precision measuring measurement systems including torque wrenches, micrometers, calipers, indicators, various gages, hardness testers, optical comparators, weighing scales, dynamometers, height gages, surface plates and many more.
