In this issue’s Personal Profile section of The Gauging Times™, believe it or not, we aren’t going to talk about Dan Marchio. Instead, we are going to touch on another five year mark for one of our guys.
Chad Weese was originally hired in 2001 as a Field Service Engineer. His job duties for the last few years have been to maintain, calibrate, and perform radiation leak tests on many of your thickness gauges. Over the years, Chad, like the others here at A.G.T., has assumed more and more responsibility. While he still splits the road work with John, he now takes care of other areas of the business such as administrative responsibilities.
On the personal front, Chad still spends his spare time riding his motorcycle. His daughter Kendall, now approaching her 12th birthday, loves to kick his girlfriend Sonia off and take a ride on his Harley Davidson Ultra Classic. Congratulations to Chad on passing the five year mark here at Advanced Gauging!
Automatic Data Gathering
At the beginning of each coil to be processed, the C-frame is moved on sheet, the Shutter is opened, and the Report Control button is activated. At the end of each coil, the Report Control is deactivated, the Shutter closes, and the C-frame moves off sheet. Using a simple digital input signal (provided by the customer) for triggering, the AGT400 Thickness Gauge & S.P.C. Reporting System can be configured to automatically handle all six of these functions. We call this standard feature ‘Automatic Data Gathering’, and it can greatly simplify thickness gauge operation, saving you time and money!
GR200 Technical Tip
Over the course of the last 16 years, we have fixed many GR200 Thickness Gauge printer problems. As many of you may know, the GR200 prints in the old dot matrix style of printing. While this was ‘cutting edge’ a few decades ago, the fact remains that this form of printing is extremely obsolete and can be difficult to maintain as technology continues to leave it behind.
Leak Tests Service Spare Parts
A.G.T. Field Service Engineers are licensed to perform semi-annual inspections and source wipes (leak tests) on all makes and models of isotope thickness gauges. Many of our customers have replaced older obsolete thickness gauges with the AGT400 Thickness Measurement and S.P.C. Reporting System. When this happens, we recycle any old parts that still have some life left in them. Over the last few years, we have been able to amass the largest spare parts inventory in the industry.
We are currently performing full service on the following makes and models of gauges:
|D.M.C.||410TAC and 450TAC|
|GammaRay||GR100, GR200 and GR2000|
