Measuring Principle

top
The measurement of the coating thickness is dependent on magnetic attraction. The attractive force is related to the distance between a permanent magnet and a steel substrate. This distance represents the thickness of the coating to be measured. The magnet is lifted from the surface by means of a spring connected to the magnet arm. The spring is tensioned by means of the thumb wheel and the coating thickness is shown directly on the scale.
