Why FMS? Save time & money
Threaded items can be measured by the machinist and also while the item is still in the machine.
Standard abbreviations for thread denominations.
Delivery Time for FMS
For items in stock delivery is a work day after an order has been received. For items not in stock usually max 3 work weeks.

What can FMS measure?
As far as we know pitch diameter on all thread types.
Also minor diameter (d1) ands major diameter (D) on most.

FMS thread measurement can be carried out at the machine by the machine operator.

Thread Plug and Ring Gauges
In most cases Thread Gauges for smaller standard threads are usually reasonably priced although, if gauges are for non-standard threads or to be calibrated regularly, cost increases.
Perhaps the best method for measuring external and internal threads affordably.
Measuring Thread Diameters...
other than pitch diameters d2 and D2
Measuring d and D1 is easy. FMS can make thread inserts for measuring diameters d1 and D. It is a normal requirement that d1 be measured on UNJ and MJ threads.
FMS calibration plates can be supplied with a calibration certificate from an authorized laboratory.
Thread Gauge Calibration
If it is a requirement that thread gauges are to be calibrated how often is this done and how much does it cost? If threads are measured with FMS then upper and lower thread pitch diameter limits can be avoided and thus reduce wear on gauges. Calibration frequency can logically be much less often.
Free Thread Information
As a customer all thread information (tolerances and similar) will be given free of charge. Assuming we can answer.
Prices are given in EURO (€) but can be found in your own currency.
FMS Thread Measurement Range
Re thread diameter the answer to that is “How long is your digital caliper?”
4 pairs of FMS thread insert types 21, 22 and 23 can measure a pitch range from 0.5mm–8mm/48 TPI–3 TPI threads with a 55º to 80º flank angle.
