Three calibration characteristics can be saved in NFG probe memory.
First we can look at the samples free of charge and say what will be possible for sure.
We have to investigate for the electrophysical properties of your materials
Then we can provide an inexpensive thickness verification of your samples (destructive measurements) of one set of samples to set of the probe.
Destructive measurement is very time consuming task.

Technical details of the coated parts which are important:
coating thickness range: minimum and maximum thicknesses  (eg. it would not be a good idea to try to measure 2 um of gold as such thickness more or less lies in the measurement error of the device), dimensions shape of the parts,  surface roughness, other sublayers or layers above if present.

F1Ni Thickness measurement of galvanic coatings (with the exception of nickel electrolytic), paint-and-lacquer and other non-ferromagnetic coatings on small-sized components made of ferromagnetic materials.
