Digital Sheave Groove Gauge (11760) Instructions Included
Part No. 16-501
With this digital sheave groove gauge users can quickly measure directly within the sheave groove itself in order to gauge and verify the presence of groove variations and/or groove wear. Now with GDC you can measure groove depths through direct contact within the sheave groove itself. The user simply lowers GDC into a groove and allows the ball plunger to contact the groove walls. The first measurement serves as a set point which is then used to compare the variances in each successive sheave groove. All variance measurements are prominently displayed within the digital screen area in either imperial or metric units. A positive (+) reading signifies that a groove depth is shallower than the first groove measured (the initial set point) while a negative (-) reading indicates a deeper groove depth, and is evidence of groove tolerance or sheave wear.
