Olympus Magna-Mike 8600 portable thickness gauge

Thursday, 11 January, 2018 | Supplied by: Olympus Australia Pty Ltd



The Olympus Magna-Mike 8600 portable thickness gauge is suitable for quality control testing of plastic and glass packaging material from as little as 0.001 mm up to 25.4 mm but can be extended to other non-ferrous products such as aluminium, paper, wood and foam containers or detecting air bag tear seams.

Simple to operate, the gauge comprises two main components — a sensor and a test target, which can be a ball or wire. The test target is inserted into the bottle and the sensor emits a small magnetic field that induces a voltage in the target, taking advantage of the Hall effect.

Variations in material thickness influence the induced voltage, which the sensor records in real time. The instrument’s display provides easy-to-read data as the sensor moves along the packaging material giving minimums, maximums and deviations in thickness.

It is available in straight, right-angle and low-profile articulating wear cap tips, and a range of target ball or wire sizes, to accommodate a range of thicknesses and test piece geometries. The sensor tip wear cap is fully replaceable — once worn out it can be interchanged without replacing the entire probe.

The VGA display utilises a data logger to store measurements which can be saved and shared using RS232 or USB outputs or export Excel spreadsheets via a microSD card.
