Precision Thickness Gauge (FT3) Hanatek

Precision Thickness Gauge (FT3) Hanatek

Manufactured by Hanatek Instruments

Precision Thickness Gauge is specifically designed to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of a variety of substrates including film, paper, board, foil, tissue and textiles.

Thickness Gauge operated via an intuitive touch screen interface the instrument will allow the user to define batch size, dwell time & measuring speed.

Full test statistics can be easily viewed or printed to label for easy documentation control.

Contact pressure and contact area are factory set options dependent on the testing standard used.

 

Thickness Gauge Features

  • Repeatability of better than 0.4 µm
  • 0.1 µm resolution
  • User programmable number of readings, dwell time and down speed
  • Metric or imperial units
  • Easy to use touch screen / integrated software
  • Flatness of measurement head/anvil <0.1μm, typical parallelism <1μm
  • Temperature stability circuitry ensures the instrument electronics reach optimum conditions before testing.
  • Batch Test: Calculates the thickness difference between two measurement sets, used to assess the thickness of coatings, adhesives or sample batches
  • Extended two year warranty
  • UKAS traceable calibration certificate, 2000 and 500 µm calibrated check gauges.
  • Thermal label printer with statistical and batch analysis (optional)

Options:

  • Printer: Time & date stamped labels allow thickness variation to be easily documented
  • Export to Excel
