Gage calibration / tracking software

We have used Gagetrak in our calibration system for over a decade. Due to bloat, severe slowdowns and lack of good tech support its time to look for a replacement. We are looking for a stand alone program without bloat to install on a network with win10 terminals. Would appreciate some feedback on the systems you are using and general price range if known.

While GageTrak was the gold standard for a long time, I sadly agree with your current assessment.

I have used IMSXpress successfully and pricing is available on their website. A few years ago my preferred calibration vendor set up their own system, and after watching for a while I decided to convert: in addition to the expected function, you can also request calibration quotes from your equipment coming due.

I am highly biased, but GAGEpack is worth evaluating.

Thought I would follow up on this so that it may help others down the road. Our Gagetrak system has been ran by a few different people over the past 10 years. What we found was the software was so bloated due to redundant entries, different names for the same gages and so on. Once we cleaned things up the software started running like it should.

Just to thrown in my own $0.02 on this question.

If you don't have a LOT of gauges to control/track, then I have found it much easier to just use an Excel spreadsheet. They are easy to make/use, and everyone that needs to can access them.

Restrict the file so that only authorized people can make changes to it (password protection).

If you're in Medical Device, make sure you validate said spreadsheet.
