APT Manufacturing Solutions specializes in wire form gages that offer great accuracy at low cost and light weight. These are precision-built attribute style gages that are machined using advanced 3D profile machine tool technology.

APT follows a rigid design process including customer concept review, 3D Solidworks design, and final customer approval from a veteran gage and fixture engineering group.

These fixtures are produced using CAD / CAM software based on your part model.  These gages are available in full profile or partial profile.  Used for production checking of your formed wire / tube parts and as an invaluable aid in bender setups.
