Hanatek - Precision Thickness Gauge (LAB)
The Hanatek Precision Thickness Gauge (LAB) FT3-V is specifically designed for use by testing laboratories. Compliance to multiple standards is achieved by varying the weight applied to the measurement platen and interchangeable measuring heads to vary the contact area.
The instrument is specifically designed to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of a variety of substrates including film, paper, board, foil, tissue and textiles.
Operated via an intuitive touch screen interface the instrument will allow the user to define batch size, dwell time & measuring speed.
Full test statistics can be easily viewed or printed to label for easy documentation control.
Contact pressure varied by adding additional weights to measurement platen. Contact area is variable from 6 - 50 mm
Physical test parameters can be factory configured according to International Standards or customer requirements. Measurement speed and dwell time are controlled by user defined parameters.
