Microprocessor controlled, motorised thickness gauge

Manufactured by Thwing Albert this digital micrometer uses state of the art measuring technology for high accuracy. Includes full statistics and profiling capability as standard and is available in a range of specifications to meet international test standards.

The ProGageTM Micrometer uses advanced technology to measure quickly and accurately the thickness of sheeted material, such as paper, films, tissue and towelling, non-wovens and textiles.

The instrument has a dual speed pressure foot, and can perform up to 20 test cycles per minute while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. The anvil design ensures excellent parallelism, zero stability and calibration. The wide range of presets for selecting the measuring speed distance and the pressure foot speed, in conjunction with a selection of pressure feet diameters and weights, enable the unit to be configured to several test standards.

The ProGageTM Micrometer can operate in conjunction with other instruments or be controlled remotely through a computer terminal. It is capable of continuous or single testing and statistical analysis, including average, high, low and standard deviation, which is performed automatically with the results being either displayed or printed.

Data acquisition software (DAS) – a Windows ® -based software package that enables data to be collected and additional statistical analysis. Real time results plotted against defined limits, semi-custom reports  generated and test data exported to other spreadsheet packages
Magnetic augmenting weights – to enable measurements to be made under different foot pressures without changing the measurement foot Sample feeder – an automatic strip feeder is available for cross-reel profiling and roll or strip feeding. Settings range from 0.1 in (2.5 mm) to 19.9 in (505 mm)
Dot matrix serial printer – formatted reports can be printed on demand, showing test results, a statistical analysis for a group of tests and a profile graph Foot switch – the foot actuated control enables test to be started with one press of the foot, leaving hands free for inserting test samples
