#2 Advanced Almen Gage

Precision crafted in the USA, the Electronics Inc. Advanced Almen gage continues to be the finest gage on the market. It has all the features needed to satisfy the most stringent specifications for the #2 type Almen gage.

  • 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.Almen Gage
  • 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 SAE J 442 and AMS 2430.
  • 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.
  • "Certificate of Calibration" to J442 included
    • qualifies to SAE AMS2432C and Boeing BAC5730N.
    • also qualifies to AMS 2430 which requires use of the end stops on the #2 Almen gage


#2 Almen Gage Jr.
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 height.
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
Note: Almen Gage Jr canot qualify for SAE J 442 since it does not have a digital indicato capable of reading 0.0001" resolution. Further, it does not quallify to AMS 2430 because it lacks the endstops.


Almen  Holder Flatness Gage
With the Electronics Inc. Almen Holder Flatness Gage (999750), it's easy to verify flatness of your Almen holder when it is rigidly attached to a fixture.  The simple two-piece design allows flatness verification in almost any orientation.  The 0.0005mm graduated dial indicator will easily exhibit compliance with the SAE J442 flatness limit and the screw holes in the frame will verify accuracy of the holder's screw locations (Nadcap requirement).
