No destruction necessary with Olympus’ new thickness gage

This non-destructive testing device determines the thickness of objects by emitting ultrasonic waves and measuring the time required for the waves to bounce back. It can be used to measure the remaining wall thickness of internally corroded pipes and tanks, as well as for quality inspections of products made from plastic, metals, glass, composites and various other materials.

Unlike previous thickness gages released by Olympus, the 38DL PLUS can be configured to carry out a wide variety of inspection tasks by purchasing software options for additional capabilities such as precision thickness measurement at resolutions of up to 0.001 mm, or the ability to take simultaneous thickness readings of individual layers in multilayered materials.

As the 38DL PLUS is designed to meet various durability standards – including the IP67 waterproofing standard – it can be used in a wide range of weather conditions and under harsh site conditions.

The 38DL PLUS also includes an internal data logger which can store and manage measurement data for 475,000 thickness readings or 20,000 waveforms.
