Range: 1" / 25mm - (Extend Range Using Gauge Blocks)
Resolution: 0.0001" / 0.002mm

The MTG Digital Contact Thickness Gage accurately measures thickness of textiles, non-wovens, technical fabrics and many other materials. Using specific diameter presser foot (feeler) and mass (weight) it can measure according to ASTM D1777, ISO 5084, D1621, D5199, D461, D751-06, D3652, ISO 9863-1, ISO 964-1 (2 kPa only) and many other international testing standards.

The MTG-DX2 System is supplied with a 9.5 mm diameter presser foot and 143 g mass. This configuration is designed to measure according to the ASTM D1777-2 and D751-06 specifications. Optional presser foot diameters and related weights are available and custom sizes can be supplied to accommodate your specifications. Refer to the details below.

The certified digital indicator includes 3 SPC data output formats, English or Metric display, auto power-off, and a left-hand lifting lever. The indicator is fitted on an 8 inch (200 mm) tall column to allow the indicator to be raised or lowered to accommodate different size test specimens. The 6"x6"x 2" (150 x 160 x 50 mm) laboratory grade certified granite base offers a smooth and extremely hard reference plane for precise and repeatable measurements.

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

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

Portable Battery-Powered Printer for Hardcopy Documentation

Need a hard copy printout of your measurement results?

Our P-190 Printer with the G03-0086 Cable will allow you to print each reading as it's shown on the display. The user simply depresses the thumb switch each time they want a value transferred to the printer. Simple yet effective!

The battery-powered P-190 Printer uses standard rolls of adding machine paper, unlike thermal printers the printout will not fade over time. It is supplied with a battery charger for operation on all power worldwide.
