In response to a great demand for a thickness gauge to suit the nonwoven industry, IDM Instruments has manufactured their thickness gauge for high loft products.
The thickness gauge for high loft products measures the thickness of high loft nonwoven material, by digital readout. The thickness gauge for high loft productswas designed and manufactured with reference to relevant ASTM standard to stringent requirements.
With extensive research and development undertaken, IDM Instruments integrated a design that allowed precise parallelism of the presser foot, when lowered with the adjustment handle onto the base plate to obtain measurements.
The range permissible on the digital thickness gauge is 200mm, with a readability of 0.01mm.
The international standard calls for a mass to be applied onto the presser foot during testing to give an accurate thickness readout. As such, a load cell has been fitted inside the base plate electrical controls, to give a defined load reading.
The thickness gauge operates trouble-free, yet offers highly accurate measurement of thickness when applied to nonwoven material, as called for by industry.
