Pin Gauge Classifier


Have you ever grabbed the wrong pin and would you even know if you had? That could have real repercussions in manufacturing including: failing good product, passing bad product, and product recalls. 

Cross Engineering has developed a pin gauge classifier which utilizes a top of the line laser scan micrometer coupled with a custom designed software application. This setup allows accurate, quick, and easy checks of pin gauges, whatever your process setup looks like. Check out some of the benefits of the pin gauge classifier our team has developed:

Features and Benefits

Utility and Control

The database is user defined and updated in real-time; therefore as pins are added or removed from the inventory the database is updated across the facility. This reduces the risk of a process deviation and costly product recalls. The equipment also has the ability to restrict end user access so that line personnel can not adjust settings. Quality systems integrity is our goal.

Library Integrity

The system reports the total number of pins in the pin gauge library. This internal check allows end users to see that the correct library is in use. Excel files can also be password protected and locked for editing. The library can be accessed via SQL server for access in a multiple station setup. Our software engineer can integrate the Pin Gauge Classifier with your specific system.

Fully Customizable

The pin gauge classifier is fully customizable. Our software engineer will work with you to integrate it into your existing system and customize the screen settings for optimal reporting.

Validation Services

Cross offers an IQ/OQ/PQ Package for your quality system documentation.


Cross can deliver your pin gauge classifier with a calibration certificate and we can calibrate it for you at regular calibration intervals.

Engineering and Application Specifications

The pin gauge classifier can be used with the following pin sets: Class ZZ & Class Z. Customer has the option to provide their own computer for this system.

In the meantime, enjoy these fun facts…

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 to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
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.
