Thickness gauging of commercial product

Thickness gauging of commercial product

Care for the environment by reducing materials in commercial products.


With costs soaring and people becoming more environmentally aware, it is important for manufacturers of commercial products to try to reduce the amount of materials used where possible, achieved through thinner materials without compromising quality.

Feather Touch Probes are designed specifically for applications where low tip forces are critical. Air is vented through the shroud at the front of the probe during actuation, which in turn cleans the bearing. Using Solartron Metrology's probes, material thickness can easily be measured, Applications include the gauging of both interior and exterior elements, flatness and perpendicularity of products, as well as the location and orientation of mounting surfaces and points.

Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.
