Magnetic coating thickness measuring gauge MikroTest

MikroTest is ideally suited to the non-destructive measurement of:

  • Non-magnetic coatings such as lacquers, enamels, chrome and zinc on ferromagnetic basis material (steel)
  • Model NiFe 50: electroplated nickel coatings on steel
  • Models Ni 50 and Ni 100: electroplated nickel coating on non-ferromagnetic substrates (e.g., aluminium, copper, synthetic material, etc.)

A unique ElektroPhysik manufacturing process gives the magnets durability to ensure they remain within tolerance levels for decades.

MikroTest 5

Manually operated measuring mechanism. Turn the scale wheel to the forward stop and then slowly turn the wheel backwards by hand until the magnet releases from the object to be measured.

MikroTest 5 G
Measuring range 0 – 100 µm, suitable for electroplating and paint coatings on steel

MikroTest 5 F
Measuring range 0 – 1.000 µm, suitable for paint coatings on steel

MikroTest 6

Automatic drive mechanism of the measuring device by tension spring storage. Before measuring the scale wheel is turned as far as it will go and once started the built-in locking mechanism automatically carries out the process of measurement.

MikroTest 6 G
Measuring range 0 – 100 µm, suitable for electroplating and paint coatings on steel

MikroTest 6 F
Measuring range 0 – 1.000 µm, suitable for paint coatings on steel

MikroTest 6 S3
Measuring range 0,2 – 3 mm, suitable for enamel, plastics or rubber on steel

MikroTest 6 S5
Measuring range 0.5 – 5 mm, suitable for enamel, plastics or rubber on steel

MikroTest 6 S10
Measuring range 2.5 – 10 mm, suitable for enamel, plastics, rubber or fire protection coatings on steel

MikroTest 6 S20
Measuring range 7.5 – 20 mm, suitable for enamel, plastics, rubber or fire protection coatings on steel

MikroTest 6 Ni50
Measuring range 0 – 50 µm, for measurement of electroplated Nickel coatings on non-ferromagnetic subtrates

MikroTest 6 Ni100
Measuring range 0 – 100 µm, for measurement of electroplated Nickel coatings on non-ferromagnetic subtrates

MikroTest 6 NiFe50
Measuring range 0 – 50 µm, for measurement of electroplated Nickel coatings on ferromagnetic steel substrate

Application
