Comparator gauges

Electroformed comparator gauges are used to determine surface finishes for all sorts of manufacturing processes, such as machining, grit blasting, etc., and can be made by simply electroforming nickel against the actual surface sample, then using that electroform as a mandrel to replicate the surface.  We make flat visual gauges that replicate imperfections found on jet engine turbo vanes when the engines are being re-built.  We make these by electroforming nickel against the actual defects cut from blades sent to us by the jet engine companies.  The workers see these images on the gauges we make and written instructions tell them what to repair.
