Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge MX-3
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 ultrasonic measurement can be performed with access to only one side of the material being measured. Ultrasonic gauges are used in the automotive, aircraft, machine and tool industry and especial to check the residual thickness of tanks and tubes.
The devices MX-1, MX-2, MX-3 and MX-5DL work with dual-element (transmit and receive) transducers, which not only measure the thickness of materials of 0.7 mm and up, but are as well suitable to detect material flaws, corrosion and pits. A wide selection of dual-element transducers for any material, geometry and different applications is available. The correct setting of the correct sound velocity, which depends solely on the material, is significant to a successful measurement.
MX-3 and MX-5DL have the ability to calibrate to a variety of different materials using a one or two-point calibration option or with a mechanically measured thickness. This is very important when high accuracy of measurement is requested. The Scan mode helps to determine the minimum material thickness.Technical Data:Measuring Range:
