Compact, rugged, and simple to use, the ThicknessPen offers an innovative approach to portable thickness measurement.  Developed to address the multiple and diverse thickness measurement applications of the production environment, the ThicknessPen can be used just about anywhere, from the laboratory to the plant floor or even in a wet environment at a job site in the field.   The patent-pending dual-mode design affords operation with or without a target ball. This provides a unique versatility not found in any product in this marketplace, while still providing the precision necessary for the laboratory and the portability, ruggedness, and safety for use on the production floor.

Using the capacitance mode, single sided, ‘touch and go’ measurements can be performed without a target ball on plastic, glass, and composite materials. This is ideal for in-plant applications and measurements where a target ball is not practical, such as production line work and/or measurement of large containers, buckets, thermoformed products, panels, sheet materials and the like.

With magnetic mode, a target ball is used during measurements.  This mode offers a level of precision equal to or exceeding traditional hall-effect devices with greater simplicity. With this device, only a single target ball is used without strong magnetic fields. The magnetic mode is suitable for measuring all types of non-ferrous materials and is ideal for intricate measurements and heavy walled containers.

The ThicknessPen can be used in its docking station for bench-top measurements or on its own, as a portable device wherever critical measurements are required. For more visit stand #SU-7459 or agrintl.com
