    Measuring paint thickness on CFRP and other substrates

     
    The FSC is a non-destructive measurement device for fast thickness measurement of paint and other electrically insulating layers on substrates such as carbon fiber-reinforced plastics (CFRP), CFRP with metallic lightning protection and metals. This mobile device consists of a sensor and a controller for operating and display purposes. The system operates in a non-destructive manner using microwaves in the ISM band without requiring any coupling medium. The FSC is, among other things, used in the aviation industry and is certified for use by renowned aircraft manufacturers.

    New: Paint thickness measurement of layers up to 500 μm – FSC1/7

     

     Characteristics

    •  Measuring range: 0 ... 500 µm
    •  No minimum thickness required
    •  Linearity: ≤ ±3 µm
    •  Repeatability: ≤2 µm
    The FSC1/7 is used to determine paint thickness on CFRP and other substrates and has a measuring range of 500 µm. In contrast to other measuring procedures, no minimum thickness is required which enables to detect even low layer thicknesses reliably. The measurement only lasts for approx. 1 second. The scope of supply includes reference films with known thickness based on which the measurement object can be calibrated. The calibration data can be stored and loaded at any time. The measurement can be exported via a USB connection for external further processing.
     

    New: Paint thickness measurement of layers up to 1000 μm – FSC1000

     

     Characteristics

    •  Measuring range: 0 ... 1000 µm
    •  No minimum thickness required
    •  Linearity: ≤ ±5 µm
    •  Repeatability: ≤4 µm
    The FSC1000 is used to determine paint thickness of CFRP and other substrates. It offers a measuring range of 1000 µm. In contrast to other measuring procedures, no minimum thickness is required. The measurement only lasts for approx. only 1 second. The plastic films included with known thickness allow for the substrate material used to be calibrated. The calibration data can be stored and loaded later. The measurement data can be exported via USB for further processing.
