Why choose an ultrasonic thickness gauge by Cygnus Instruments?

Founded in 1983, Cygnus Instruments are the renowned as pioneers of the multiple echo technique which has since become an industry standard for measuring material thickness through the coating. Every ultrasonic thickness meter we manufacture has the facility to use this technique with a single crystal probe that provides correct measurements that are error checked for accuracy.An ultrasonic gauge with a probe will take the time taken for sound echoes to travel through a material and convert this into a thickness measurement. The name comes from the fact that multiple sound pulses are used for this process. Here are some of the advantages of our multiple-echo system:

  • Coating and paint do not have to be removed to measure thickness
  • Coating and paint will not be included in the displayed measurement
  • Cygnus Instruments gauges can read through coatings of up to 6mm in thickness
  • A deep coat function allows this to be increased to 20mm when necessary
  • It can be used to measure on curved surfaces effectively
