Go/No Go Gages
It is important to periodically Gage the Crimp tool by using an Inspection/Verification Gage (Go/No-Go). This step is performed to assure the tool has maintained the settings/tolerances it had when it was manufactured or calibrated.
4/8 Indent tools can be easily gaged by selecting the correct Go/No-Go Gage, and following the directions on the gage, and tool instructions.
Inspection and Verification Gaging of Tools
Set the tool to the specified setting (Crimp Depth Selector) and first Insert the Go, then the No-Go end of the gage into the indenters.
The “GO” should pass freely between the four indenters, and the “NO-GO” may enter, but should not pass through the indenters.
