Height Gauge Products

Cross offers a wide selection of Height gauges from the brands you know and trust such as Mitutoyo, Starrett, and Trimos. Height gauges consist of a vertical beam which is attached to a stationary base. A moveable measuring arm slides up and down the beam to measure the height of a given object. These dimensional metrology tools are invaluable in precise vertical distance measurement. Height gauges come in various styles including: digital, dial, vernier, and even motorized models. Most varieties also include the capability to add attachments to the measuring arm so they can be utilized with a wide array of applications.


Vernier Height Gauges

Starrett Vernier Height GaugeVernier models offer a cost effective approach for accurate vertical measurements. With no internal moving parts and a simple sliding vernier scale for measurement, these are capable of holding up to more harsh environments than other models. With regular calibration to verify readings, they are very likely to outlast many other types of measurement instruments.

Dial Height Gauges

Mitutoyo Dial Height GaugeDial models offer another cost effective approach for accurate vertical measurement. They incorporate a dial gauge which is directly correlated to the level of the arm on parallel vertical shafts. Precise readings are made easier to interpret with the dial readout and models are offered with both metric and imperial dial gauges.

Digital Height Gauges

Mitutoyo Digital Height GaugeDigital models offer an easy to use readout which typically allows operators to toggle between both metric and imperial scales. Like many other digital measuring tools, most offer data collection via SPC output so results can be imported directly into your quality system. Digital models utilize encoders which glide over a scale on the vertical shaft, this offers both precision and repeatability while reducing the opportunity for mechanical malfunction.

Motorized Height Gauges

Mitutoyo LH 600 Height GaugeMotorized models typically offer a digital readout and an exceptional level of precision and repeatability. The digital displays are easy to read, and the automatic operation eliminates opportunities for human error. Most motorized models also include the ability to perform simple calculated measurements, such as taking point to point measurements, and storing results internally while allowing SPC data output.

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
