A tool with which you can accurately determine the thickness of a material or its coating layer is called a thickness gauge. The device is used in construction, shipbuilding, in everyday life. Most often it is used in mechanical engineering to measure layers of paint, primer, putty, film applied to the body without violating the integrity of the material.
Today anyone can buy an automotive thickness gauge for:
- accurate assessment of the quality of paintwork;
- determining the cost of vehicles;
- detecting body defects when buying a car.
The thickness gauge of paint is a popular device in the industrial and construction industries. It is used to measure the layer of insulating coating, which is applied to communications, concrete, pipes and is used by inspection inspectors when inspecting objects before certification of the product.
Today you can find and buy a thickness gauge in specialized stores, many of its models are presented in our universal online store “Bulgarian”. Devices different in principle of operation are used in different fields.
Electromagnetic devices are able to measure the density of the magnetic field, therefore they are used to measure the thickness of the coating, and the products are also suitable for working with ferrous metals. Eddy current models measure with a magnetic field, are effective on non-magnetic, non-ferrous metals, and are most accurate in measuring aluminum and copper. Ultrasonic ones work due to ultrasonic waves, they are used for the analysis of non-metallic coatings (ceramics, steel, plastic), except for wood, foam, paper.
Magnetic varieties work on the basis of magnets, are recommended for measuring paint, powder, plastic layers and other hard non-magnetic coatings. Combined designs simultaneously operate on the principle of electromagnetic and eddy current devices. Both magnetic and non-magnetic surfaces are measured.
Depending on the model of the thickness gauge, the price may differ, because the devices are equipped with additional functions that expand their capabilities and simplify their work. This is a built-in backlight that allows you to take measurements in places with poor lighting. Large LCD display for fast operation with clear numbers. The auto shutdown mode will save battery power and the USB port will allow data exchange. The built-in memory of the device will be increased by a memory card.
