U8 Crack Microgauge

Hello,

Does anyone know if the U8 crack microgauge is still being manufactured today, and if so by whom?

Re: U8 Crack Microgauge
In Reply to Jean-Claude Schwartz at 11:26 Feb-09-2010 (Opening).

The U8 crack microgauge was a portable ACPD instrument, manufactured by Krautkramer under licence from Dover & Partners (based at University College London).
Manufacture was halted many years ago.

We (TSC - a successor to Dover & Partners) used to manufacture combined ACPD/ACFM instruments (called U9 and U10), but dropped ACPD due to low demand. However last year, following a series of enquiries by customers, we launched a new rugged ACPD instrument (called MkIV). For details, please refer to our website www.tscinspectionsystems.co.uk.
