Windsor, CT, United States, 2009/04/15 - Fischer offers complete range of hand held coating thickness gauges ideally suited for measurements of paint, powder coating, plating and anodize. coating thickness gauges measure over ferrous, non-ferrous, or both ferrous and non-ferrous substrates.
The FMP Series is the most recent addition to the Fischer product line. The new instruments are the DELTASCOPE® FMP10, ISOSCOPE® FMP10, DUALSCOPE® FMP20, DELTASCOPE® FMP30, ISOSCOPE® FMP30, DUALSCOPE® FMP40, and DUALSCOPE® FMP100 coating thickness gauges. These easy to use and versatile instruments offer a large and bright graphic display with an extremely durable shock resistant casing. A large selection of probes are interchangeable for the new FMP Series yielding extreme accuracy and a wide measurement range. In addition to the FMP Series, Fischer offers the MP0R Series which has two large displays, automatic substrate recognition, and like the FMP Series, the MP0R is also precise, robust, and easy to use.
Also new from Fischer is the FERITSCOPE® FMP30 for the measurement of ferrite content in austentic and duplex steel.
You will find the appropriate instrument in the new FMP family to fit your measuring application. The instrument type is determined based on the coatings to be measured and their respective substrate materials.
Other products offered by Fischer include the PHASCOPE® PMP10 for measurements according to the phase-senstive Eddy current method. Ideally suited for measuring the non-ferrous metal coatings on steel fasteners and other small plated parts. In addition the PHASCOPE® DUPLEX measures individual thickness values of multi-layer coatings used in the automotive and appliance industries. The SR-SCOPE® RMP30 measures the thickness of copper coatings on pc-boards. The SIGMASCOPE® SMP10 is for measurement of the electrical conductivity of metals such as aluminum or copper. The ANOTEST® YMP30-S is for testing the sealing quality of anodic coatings on aluminum (a quality feature for the weather resistance of the coating.) The FISCHERSCOPE® HM2000 and PICODENTOR®HM500 are measurement systems to determine the Martens Hardness in the micro- and nano- ranges.
The universal measurement system FISCHERSCOPE® MMS® is designed for coating thickness and materials testing according to the magnetic, magnetic induction, Eddy current, beta backscatter and electrical resistance measuring methods. The MMS® BETASCOPE® uses the betabackscatter method and is a proven test method and is ideal for most coatings applied to any substrate material. Other MMS® modules available are the PERMASCOPE®, SIGMASCOPE®, SIGMASCOPE® DUPLEX, and NICKELSCOPE®.
