Cygnus Exhibits at the ASNT Annual Conference in Charleston USA

ASNT 2014 created a platform for Cygnus to demonstrate their range of ultrasonic thickness gauges for the NDT industry.

Cygnus Instruments Ltd are the leading manufacturer of the multiple-echo ultrasonic thickness gauge, proving engineers and surveyors with the perfect solution for performing metal thickness testing without the need to remove protective coatings.

The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) created the ideal platform for Cygnus to display their range of thickness gauges and to demonstrate how these can be used within the NDT industry to provide accurate and reliable thickness measurements, without causing damage to the material being tested.

All Cygnus thickness gauges use the multiple-echo technique but the one gauge that caught the attention of most visitors at ASNT was the Cygnus 4 General Purpose. The Cygnus 4 is a small, easy to use, hand-held thickness gauge with automatic probe recognition which senses the probe type and adjusts the gauge settings for optimum performance. With its Deep-Coat mode, the gauge is also able to accurately read through coatings up to 20mm thick.
