Thickness tester employs mechanical scanning method to measure the thickness of plastic films, sheets, board, fabrics, textile, membranes, paper, foil, wafers and other materials.
Summary of test method
A specimen is placed on the base and a weighted presser foot lowered. The displacement between the base and the presser foot is measured as the thickness of the specimen.
Test Range 0~2mm(Customization available)
Resolution 0.1 μm
Measuring pressure 17.5±1 KPa (for film); 50±1 KPa (for paper, optional)(flat foot)
Contact area 50 mm2 (for film); 200 mm2 (for paper, optional)(flat foot)
Power AC 220V 50Hz (Customization available)
