Thickness gauges, as the name suggests are instruments used to measure the thickness of materials, manufactured parts or coatings in a wide range of applications. Modern thickness gauges are typically digital with an LCD display reporting the measurement taken via the use of a mechanical jaw placed around the item under test. Sometimes these devices can be referred to as a coating thickness gauge, thickness meter or mini thickness gauge depending on the particular application and industry it is used in.
Owing to the different applications these devices are used in there are a number of different accuracy tolerances when it comes to calibration of thickness gauges. Coating thickness gauges can be calibrated in several different ways including one-point calibration, foil calibration and two-foil calibration methods. Specialist ultrasonic thickness gauges require approved standards known as calibration blocks.
The thickness gauge calibration services offered by Calibrationhouse benefits from highly accurate test standards and procedures performed almost exclusively at our laboratory in County Durham.
