Analog Foil Thickness Gauges

This handy instrument is used exclusively to measure the thickness of thin foils (aluminium, tinplate,paper...)
The frame has the required rigidity, the insulation of the handle prevents transfer of heat from the hand of the user to the sensitive mechanical parts of the Dial Gauge.

Compika - Comparator Gauges
The Comparator Gauges Compika offer a high degree of security and precision.
They are based on a solid and well thought-out construction taking into account the latest technology.
They are manufactured by the most up-to-date methods.
The following quality features characterize our manufacturing programme of Comparator Gauges Compika:

  • Their design conforms to the requirements of DIN 879-1. This applies not only to the dimensions but also to permitted spans of error, hysteresis and measuring pressure.  Effective shockproof system
  • Pinions and shafts of the movement are jewelled
  • After removal of the safety cap the adjustment screw on top of the case allows simple and safe zero setting of the instrument over the total measuring range.  A safety cap prevents unintentional turning of the fine adjustment facility.
  • Stem and spindle are made of hardened stainless steel.
  • The measuring spindles are very sensitive on account of their accurate guides.
  • Additional overtravel assists with the insertion of workpieces into the measuring device.
  • The clear scale is shadow free.
  • The red tolerance markers are easy to recognize and to set.
  • On request all our models are available with a reduced pressure of 0.5 N.
