Electronics Inc have been the world's leading provider of
Almen gages since 1987.
Precision crafted in the USA, the Electronics Inc. Almen
gage continues to be the finest gage on the market. It has
all the features needed to satisfy the most stringent specifications.
Advanced Almen Gage has:
- An easy-to-read display. Our gage has a large digital
display that is English/metric convertible and can be rotated
so you can perform the Almen strip tests standing or sitting.
- A patented magnetic grip and foolproof end stops. The
strip is mounted for accurate measurement so no spring or
finger holding force will corrupt the reading accuracy.
Since all of the holding force is concentrated at the support
balls, absolutely no strip distortion can occur. (U.S. Patent
No. 5,297,418) Our end stops assure placement within the
intended measuring point on the strip.
- .0001'' (.001 mm) resolution. Meets SAE and aerospace
specifications including AMS-S-13165C and SAE J442.
- SPC data port. It's standard on every gage to allow direct
data transfer to your computer.
- Computer Interface Device that connects gage to computer
USB port. (Available as an accessory)
- Convenient battery replacement. The battery is easy-to-change
and readily available. The gage will not lose information
when you change the battery so there is no need to recalibrate
the gage after battery replacement.
- One-year warranty and continued product support. Electronics
Inc. provides technical support and calibration/repair services.
- Come with a "Certificate of Calibration" to
- (also qualifies to MIL-S-13165C, AMS-S-13165,
SAE AMS2432C and Boeing BAC5730N).
If you don't need the high precision of a digital gage, we
offer the Almen Gage Jr. in an analog style that's ideal for
general purpose shot peening and blast cleaning.
The small size and light weight of the Almen Gage Jr. (4"
tall and less than 1/2 lb. in weight) make it convenient for
operators to use anywhere.
The Almen Gage Jr. has a 1 3/4" dial indicator with
.0005 graduations for easy reading of the Almen strip arc
The Almen Gage Jr. also has many of the same features
of the Advanced Almen Gage including:
- precision machining
- durable hardcoat finish
- patented magnetic grip
- stem mounted indicator
- MIL-S-13165 compliant
Electronics Incorporated Almen test strip holders are industry
standard J442 Almen holders. Special styles can be custom
ordered including a variation with end feet. Alternate configurations
of Almen holders are available on special request. All holders
meet dimensional surface requirements of SAE J442 and are
hardened to Rockwell C 58 or higher. Screws for strip attachment
are supplied with each block. Additional screws are available.
All holders are thru-hardened to minimum HRc 58 so you can
re-finish the surface to maintain surface flatness requirements.
We offer threaded and non-threaded holders - choose the design
of Almen Holder that makes mounting your test strips easiest
Note: MIL-S-13165 has been cancelled. The drawings of strips,
holder and gage were in inches while SAE J442 measurements
are metric. EI can supply to MIL-S-13165 at an additional
Flapper peening (also called "roto-peening") is
a shot peening process that's ideal for peening in small and
peening, first developed by 3M Corporation in the 1960s for
U.S. Army helicopter field repair during the Vietnam war,
is widely used in the aerospace industry today. Flapper Peening
Training is available from Electronics Inc.
Flapper Peening products can be purchased invidually or as
a kit. Our flapper peening kits provide a convenient method
of small area local repair without the need for a blast cabinet.
The basic kit includes the unique components to conduct precision
peening according to the highest military standards.
