Works calibration of coating thickness meters

Measurement of coating thicknesses is known from, for example, the paint measurement for coating thickness at cars. In fact, these measurements are used much more widely in industrial applications. This is where the thickness of the surface finish is measured, such as galvanisation, zinc coating etc, or also lacquers.

Fundamentally there are two measuring principles for determining coating thickness:

Typ F: Non-magnetic coatings on magnetic metals, such as iron or steel (magnetic induction principle). Here are some sample material combinations:
aluminium, chrome, copper, rubber, lacquer on steel, iron, alloys, magnetic stainless steel

Typ N: Non-magnetic coatings on non-magnetic metals, such as aluminium (eddy current principle). Here are some sample material combinations:
lacquer, paints, enamel, chrome, plastics on aluminium, brass, sheet metal, copper, zinc, bronze

Typ FN: All coatings as for type F and N on all metals as for type F and N (combination of magnetic induction and eddy current principle

Every electronic measuring device will only give correct results if it is checked regularly, i.e. calibrated correctly and adjusted when required. An electronic measuring device is only a reliable measuring and checking tool if it is calibrated and this calibration is documented as part of a quality procedure.
We are pleased to offer you the factory calibration of coating thickness meters for the measuring range of up to 2000 µm (F, N or FN) in  our ultra-modern laboratory within fastest processing times (4 working days).
