Introducing the Fischer Probe FTD3.3
The Right Choice for Paint, Lacquer and Anodised Coatings.
- What is it?
Contacting probe for non-destructive measurement of coating thickness
- How does it work?
High-frequency eddy current method
- To ISO specification?
- Measuring Range
0 – 800 μm
- What are the unique selling points?
Automatic correction for the curvature of the coated sample that removes the need for frequent re-calibration
- What are typical measuring applications
Thickness of anodic films and polymeric coatings on aluminium, brass, or copper and non-ferromagnetic substrates
- What are the main markets
Aerospace, automotive, aluminium extrusions
- Suitable Fischer instrument types
ISOSCOPE®, DUALSCOPE®, FISCHERSCOPE® MMS® PC2 with the module, PERMASCOPE®
The FTD3.3 contacting (tactile) probe used in conjunction with a handheld or bench mounted instrument from FISCHER makes it easy to measure coating thicknesses non-destructively. Using a high-frequency eddy current principle to ISO 2360, its unique automatic curvature correction removes the need for frequent re-calibration on curved surfaces. It is widely used to measure anodic film and polymeric coatings on aluminium in the aerospace, automotive, and aluminium extrusion industries.
