Although Bowers produces the most comprehensive series of bore gauges and internal measuring equipment available, not all applications can be covered by our standard instrument range. Bowers’ Special Applications team has earned a reputation for manufacturing special heads for measuring non-standard applications; such as threads, splines and grooves.

Added to the superior range of precision measuring instruments, Bowers’ on-site UKAS calibration laboratory ensures many of its products receive a certificate of calibration fully traceable to National Standards, giving its customers confidence in the high quality of the products and services supplied by Bowers Group.
