Olympus is a leading source of ultrasonic thickness gauges for the accurate measurement of many types of material.
Our digital thickness gauges offer a range of features for advanced performance. Explore different options to suit your application needs, from simple handheld gauges to advanced models. All Olympus ultrasonic thickness gauges can measure thickness from one side of a part. An ultrasonic thickness gauge can measure most engineering materials, including plastics, metals, metal composites, rubber, and internally corroded materials. Olympus is also a leading manufacturer of Hall Effect thickness gauges, which are ideal if you’re looking to achieve fast, precise, and accurate measurements on nonferrous or thin materials, such as plastic bottles.
Digital Thickness Gauges
Our range of precision thickness gauge solutions includes basic handheld thickness gauges, advanced ultrasonic gauges, and single and dual element transducers.
The 27MG basic ultrasonic thickness gauge is designed to make accurate measurements from one side on internally corroded or eroded metal pipes and parts. It is lightweight, durable, and ergonomically designed for easy, one-hand operation.
The 45MG advanced ultrasonic thickness gauge is packed with standard measurement features and software options. This unique instrument is compatible with the complete range of Olympus dual element and single element thickness gage transducers.
The versatile 38DL PLUS™ gauge can be used with dual element transducers for the measurement of corroded pipes to the very precise thickness measurements of thin or multilayer materials with a single element transducer.
The Magna-Mike™ Hall Effect thickness gauge uses a magnetic probe to perform accurate measurements on nonferrous and thin materials such as plastic bottles.
The 35RDC is a simple Go/No-Go ultrasonic gauge designed to detect subsurface defects caused by impact damage on aircraft composite structures.
Transducers and Accessories
Olympus offers a variety of single and dual element transducers and accessories for precision and corrosion thickness gauging.
Thickness Gauge FAQ
What is a thickness gauge?
A thickness gauge is a device used to quickly and easily measure the thickness of a material. A thickness gauge is useful for many industries but is most commonly used in engineering and manufacturing to help ensure material thickness complies with industrial standards and regulations. As well as measuring the thickness and density of a material, a thickness gauge can be used as an additional quality assurance tool in industries such as automotive, measuring the uniformity of material and helping to identify hidden damages or imperfections.
What is a Hall Effect thickness gauge?
Hall Effect thickness gauges, like the Olympus Magna-Mike™ 8600, use a sensor that responds to changes in a magnetic field by varying a voltage. Using a small magnetic target, they can provide accurate thickness measurements of nearly any non-magnetic material where a probe can be placed on one side and a target, like a steel ball, on the other.
How to measure pipe thickness?
If you’re looking to measure the thickness of a pipe, an ultrasonic thickness gauge should be used. A handheld thickness gauge, such as the 27MG, will offer accurate measurements from one side of metal pipes and parts that are thinning due to erosion or corrosion.
How to measure metal thickness?
For accurately measuring the thickness of a metal in a nondestructive way, an ultrasonic thickness gauge should be used.
