Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge MT-160

Caltech Engineering Services offers Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge model MT-160 is suitable for a variety of metallic and non-metallic materials. Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge is operated on micro controller Non-destructive principle. Instant thickness measurements are possible. LCD display for quick and best reliability.

Ultrasonic thickness gauge adopts the theory of sound wave to measure a wide range of material, such as metals, plastic, ceramics, composites, epoxies, glass and other ultrasonic wave well-conductive materials. Main functions are given below:

  • Probe-Zero, Sound-Velocity-Calibration.
  • Two-Point Calibration
  • Two working modes: Single point mode and Scan mode.
  • Coupling status indicator showing the coupling status.
  • Battery information indicates the rest capacity of the battery.
  • Auto sleep and auto power off function to conserve battery life.
  • Optional software to process the memory data on the PC.
  • Optional thermal mini-printer to print the measured data via RS232 port.
