Description of the film thickness gauge

MetaScope 5 is a state-of-the-art coating thickness gauge. It can measure the thickness of tin, nickel and silver layers of galvanised copper wires. MetaScope 5 uses coulometric coating thickness measurement in accordance with EN ISO 2177.

As a preparation, the sample wire is cut to a specified length. It is then attached to the sample holder and, thereby, contacted to the measuring electronics. Next, a specified length of the sample is immersed into an electrolyte fluid and the inspection is started. During measurement, the galvanic layer is detached from the sample while the gauge analyses the amount of electricity required for this task. With the results, the film thickness gauge can calculate and display the coating thickness in µ-inch (or µm) and g/kg.

An alternative sample holder for very thin wires comes included with the plating thickness gauge.
