MTG Material Thickness Gauge

Made in the USAThe MTG Benchtop Contact Thickness Gage accurately and conveniently performs geometric dimensional testing (thickness measurement) on rubber, fabrics, foams, tapes/films and a wide assortment of other soft materials. It employs specified presser foot (feeler) of a specific diameter/area and combined with a predetermined mass (weight) as noted in the ASTM D 3767 standard.

The MTG System is supplied with a 16 mm diameter pressor foot and 212 g mass. This configuration is commonly used for measurement of all rubber materials with a hardness of 35 IRHD or below. Optional pressor foot diameters and related weights are available. Refer to details below.

Range: 0-25 mm
Resolution: 0.002 mm

Custom Weights and Footers can be made to meet a wide range of specifications. Contact us for more info.

The certified electronic indicator includes 3 SPC data output formats, measures in English or Metric, maximum reading hold, auto off, and left-hand lifting lever. The 150 x 160 x 50 mm laboratory grade certified granite base offers a smooth and extremely hard reference plane for precise and repeatable measurments of test samples. The indicator is fitted on an 200 mm tall column that is easily adjusted to be positioned optimally for the specific test sample to be measured.

For those requiring data output for recording and quality documentation purposes, a serial output cable and windows-based software program is optionally available.

  • Left-hand lever provides convenient means to lift footer for sample placement
  • User-selected units of inch or mm providing resolution of 0.002 mm (0.0001")
  • Supplied with 16 mm footer with 212g mass. Other footer diameters and weight sets are available. See below.
  • The Pressor foot includes a clever "swivel" feature to ensure optimal alignment with test sample for the highest possible accuracy
  • Digital Indicator is battery-powered and features PEAK-HOLD and Auto Power Off functions.
  • Electronic Indicator and Granite Base are supplied with traceable certification
  • Three outputs are provided for data transfer; RS-232, Mitutoyo (MTI) and BCD. Cable and Software are offered as an option.
  • Made and assembled in the USA with 1-Year Warranty
  • Software We recommend WinWedge Software for the MTG.
