The software QMSys Threads and Gauges is a powerful thread engineering program designed for engineers, metrologists, quality control managers, and machinist to save time and prevent human errors in determining nominal and limit values of thread parameters. The program is especially useful in the manufacture and control of threaded products and tools by saving time and costs for supplying standards and computations. The results are based on international standards and comprise information about values and tolerances of threaded products, working gauges, plug and ring gauges as well as checking gauges.
QMSys Threads and Gauges provides thread data on pitch diameters, major diameters, gage data, part data, helix angles, product and gage tolerances, crest and root flats, wire sizes, constants, and just about anything on threads one needs to know.

- Also thread sizes which are not listed in the standards up to 1000 mm (40 in)
- Automatic corrections for workpiece and gauge coatings, statistic and arithmetic tolerance computation.
- Computation of the limiting values of the outcome from the pitch diameter measurements using spherical or cylindrical probing elements and two- or three point measurements (Three Wire Method) by the method described in the publication "EA–10/10 Guidelines on the Determination of Pitch Diameter of Parallel Thread Gauges by Mechanical Probing".
- Implementation of custom screw threads and gauges.
Advantages of the QMSys Threads and Gauges software
- Computation of thread gauges according to ISO and ANSI/ASME standards.
- Statistic computation of the corrections for surface coatings - in view of the larger diameter tolerances before coating it leads to the lowering of the production costs.
- Computation of indicated values by measuring the pitch diameter with three wires or three balls with consideration of the influence of a measuring force and deformation.
- Information is provided in both inches and millimetres.
- Customers can provide themselves or adapt the templates for reports, specifications and other documents by means of a text processing software.
- Optionally, an automatic generation of designs is offered for screw thread gauges.
