Thickness Gauge is a state of the art Thickness Gauge. These gauges can easily detect the thickness of nonmagnetic coating on a magnetic substrate or an Insulating coating on nonmagnetic conductive substrate (Non-Ferrous) utilizing on integrated Probe. We provide with in-built keys to restore calibration at any place, it facilitates user to calibrate instrument using standard foils of different thicknesses. These gauge are facilitated with features like fast scan mode, file compare and color waveform which increase their utility quotient in varied testing exercises.
Anything weighing more than 170gsm is generally classified as board . At this weight a second measure can be used that indicates the thickness of the sheet. This measurement is given in microns where 1 micron = 1/1000 of a millimetre. This can be confusing as different sheets may weigh the same in GSM but have different thicknesses in microns. For example a piece of balsa wood and a piece of oak may be the same thickness but will weigh very different amounts. This is due to a number of factors during the manufacture of the board. These can include the type of coating on the board, the amount of virgin fibres used or bulkiness of the raw material.
