The 3000FX Series coating thickness gauge is a multifunctional fully menu driven gauge for fast, professional and precise coating thickness measurement for

varnish, paint and electroplated coatings on iron/steel and

varnish, paint and anodising coatings on non-ferrous metals and on austenitic stainless steels

All external probes are machined to ultra-high standards and utilize a unique, hard-metal probe tip which prevents probe wear.

A v-notched footer provides a stable footing on small cylindrical parts, which can be removed to expose a "micro-probe" sensor perfect to measure on small surfaces and parts.

Where to use the 3000FXcoating thickness gauge Series

Wherever coatings are applied whether on visual and aesthetic grounds, to prevent corrosion protection, or for functional and mechanical reasons the coating thickness represents an essential quality feature. The 3000FX Series is ideal for speedy, non-destructive and exceptionally precise coating thickness measurement.
