Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges MMX-6 MMX-6DL

Thickness Gauges for measuring the thickness of homogeneous materials

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge MMX-6 MMX-6DL

The Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement is used to determine the thickness of a material, for example the wall of a tank or pipe.

The Ultrasonic Measuring Technique is used to measure the thickness of steel and all other metals, glass and homogenous plastics and to detect material flaws, corrosion and pits. The main advantage of ultrasonic measurement over traditional methods is that an ultrasonic thickness tester can work with access to only one side of the material being measured. Ultrasonic gauges are used as a thickness tester in the automotive, aircraft, machine and tool industry and especially as a corrosion tester to check the residual thickness of tanks and tubes.

The Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge MMX-6 contains all the functions of the MX devices (MX-5DL, but without data logger and interface) with the additional possibility of measuring even on coated parts without taking the coating into account during the measurement. In order to accomplish all these functions with a single test head, it uses high-damped dual-element (transmit and receive) transducers. The normal dual-element transducers can also be used for the measurement of uncoated objects. You can toggle the device between the Echo-Echo Mode for coated objects or the Pulse-Echo Mode (reflection sound method) for uncoated objects.

MMX-6DL offers in comparison to MMX-6 a data logger and a RS232 interface.
