Micrometers At PCE Instruments, we have micrometers to determine the thickness of various layers of corrosion and layers of paint. The principles for measuring the micrometers is by the magnetic induction or by means of analysing an eddy current. The micrometers can be used on all surfaces of metallic materials (metal, iron, non ferrous metal alloys). Therefore these devices can not miss a Micrometers where galvanising processes are carried out. Micrometers are particularly suitable for quality control in the process of anodising, or galvanising. These devices are essential to measure the coatings in the automotive sector, for example:
- F Model: to measure lacquers, paints, plasters, etc. on iron and steel - N model: to measure lacquers, paints, plasters, etc. on non-ferrous metals (e.g. aluminum) - FN model: (micrometers combined for ferrous and non ferrous substrates) - PT -200 Model : for layers / painting, and any other non-metallic coating bases
You can also find different wall thickness meters that determine the hardness of metal, plastic and glass walls and windows. You can also find a special manual tester with a head unit to test temperatures up to 300°C. These wall thickness meters are particularly suitable to check the thickness of the wall for steam pipes and other pressure pipes. In order to properly transmit ultrasonic wave and thereby guarantee a high accuracy you should apply gel on the contact part between the sensor and the object that is to be measured then adjust the sound speed and the unit will display the thickness of the measured object. Micrometers for material such as metal, plastic, wood, paper, precious stones are also present in our online offers. They are available in analog and digital options. They cover a measuring range of 1.2 to 225mm thick material. In some micrometers, ultrasonic velocity can be selected between 1000 and 9999 m/s to penetrate different materials. Each device has a memory large enough to store a minimum of 10 measured values. The measurement results can quickly take the results thanks to the easy handling. They also provide support to service personnel or staff complaints. A special application of the micrometers is that they accurately value precious stones, jewelllery and other valuables. The technical specifications for the micrometers for layer/paint/wall and other materials can be found on the following links. If you can't find the micrometers you are looking for, please contact us and we will help you find the best solution to suit your needs by calling our offices on: UK customers +44(0) 23 809 870 30 / US customers (561) 320-9162 and our technical staff will advise you regarding our measuring instruments. Our engineers and technicians will be happy to help you with the micrometers, and of course, with the other products in the field of regulation and control, and scales and balances.

The micrometers are devices for non-destructive measurement of body paint thickness (paints, varnishes, plastics, iron, steel or non-ferrous metals). Here, the paint thickness meter impressive features are its enormous range. As an indispensable partner for control measurements as in the workshop, and production in the all-inclusive quality assurance, the CT 28 is the basic equipment of a technician in the paint and color range. These paint thickness meters are perfectly suitable to detect, for example, accidental damage to bodies immediately to avert damage. Ideal for any vehicle experts. But even in an industrial area this instrument is ideal for use in input and output control as well as to test material in the production with its ergonomically designed paint thickness gauge with integrated probe. In very simple operation, it is allowed to quickly identify high-accuracy measurement results. It is designed for measurements of non-magnetic coatings such as chrome, plastic, zinc, enamel, copper, enamel on steel & iron. Also for the measurement of insulating layers, such as paper, rubber, glass, plastic, enamel, lacquer, etc. on stainless steel, brass, aluminum & copper, and anodised aluminum. Due to the high temperature range, it is ideally suited for testing of coatings to waterborne and rail construction.
General information for micrometers: Especially in the automotive sector these measuring instruments are going to be more popular constantly. Coating thickness meters measure the coating thickness. There are instruments too, that measure the brightness of varnish. A new varnish has got another value of brightness than an old one. UV radiation and environmental conditions can’t be hidden by polishing. The measurement results are able to show if damages, caused by accidents, have been eliminated. The original varnish coats will get thinner constantly (e.g. 110 l’m). The tolerance value of coating thickness on original varnish coats is really tight. On repainted areas there is a great fluctuation because the old varnish mostly has been grinded. The new varnish will be applied then. Also in the industrial sector micrometers will get more popular. Vessel varnishing, coats on bridge railing or machines or wood coating can be measured. Most of the micrometers are able to get calibrated according to ISO. So you can integrate these measuring instruments to your ISO-measuring tool, calibrate them and have stable accuracy.
