It would help a bit if we knew WHAT was being meaured/checked?
I wonder if these are in fact measurement jigs --- you know, pieces cut to the same length as a good part, to give a go/no-go indication? I've a feeling there IS a different word for this in French, but in my exp., the words are often used lazily and fuzzily!
If this is anything to do with printing, in the days of old lead type, a reglet was the same in English --- a thin piece of wood or metal used as spacing, or for printing lines (I forget which!)

|Thanks Dusty. It turns out that it is still a reglet.|
