World-leading specialist in non-destructive testing technologies, Olympus NDT introduces the Magna-Mike 8600 Hall Effect thickness gauge designed for accurate measurement of the thickness of thin-walled items such as blow-moulded plastic bottles.
The Magna-Mike 8600 is a portable thickness gauge that utilises a magnetic method to make reliable thickness measurements on non-ferrous materials. The high versatile magnetic thickness gauges can be used in a wide range of applications including measurements of thermoformed plastic trays, extruded tubing and automotive tear seams in addition to glass and composites, as well as any non-ferrous metals, such as aluminium, brass, copper and titanium with a thickness range from 0.001mm to 25.4mm.
The Magna-Mike 8600 is also ideal for applications with complex geometry where ultrasonic thickness measurements are difficult or impossible.
The Magna-Mike 8600 magnetic thickness gauge offers simple operation with the magnetic probe held or scanned on one side of the test material while a small target ball is placed on the opposite side or dropped inside a container. The probe's Hall Effect sensor measures the distance between the probe tip and the target ball, which is instantly displayed as an easy-to-read digital thickness reading.
Key features of Magna-Mike 8600 magnetic thickness gauge:
