Kafer digital fabric thickness gauge

 

This inch and metric digital thickness gage is designed for measurement of relatively soft materials such as felt, foam, elastics, leather, plastics and other compressible fabrics. The extra large 30 mm diameter flat anvils shown in the photo below allow a precise measurement to be taken without unduly compressing the material.

The anvils are closed when at rest. Depressing the lever (lifting device) at the top of the indicator causes the anvil to rise, which allows you to insert the material to be measured. The anvil closes under its own weight which is constant from one measuring sample to the next. The measuring force is 1.2 N but can be customized to as little as .5 N. You will have to request a custom measuring force when the order is placed. These gages are imported from Germany.

The high quality Swiss made Sylvac digital indicator included with this thickness gage is easy to use. It switches from inch to metric as needed. The easy to read numerals are 8.5 mm high. A Lithium 3V battery provides about 3000 hours of use. The digital indicator has RS 232 optical output.

As an option, 10 mm diameter anvils are also available. These may actually work better with very thin films or fabrics.

An optional bench stand allows these thickness gages to stand on their own on any stable surface, giving you better control particularly with small parts measurement.

Warranty and Repair Service

 

Kafer provides a 2 year warranty against defects. If this digital fabric thickness gauge ever requires repair, please return it to Long Island Indicator Service. Be advised that damage to the digital indicator will probably not be economically repairable; however, replacement digital indicators are available. See repair service for details.

 

Are you looking for something smaller or less expensive?

 

If you don't absolutely require digital gauges then you can save a considerable amount of money. Not only are they initially less expensive, mechanical gauges are usually repairable if something goes wrong. We carry an assortment of dial thickness gages and pocket thickness gages shown on page 12.
