Series 35 Ultrasonic Precision Thickness Gauges

June 2005, Waltham, MA
Olympus-NDT is pleased to introduce the Panametrics-NDT Models 35, 35HP, 35DL, and 35DLHP Ultrasonic Precision Thickness Gages. These versatile handheld models make accurate and repeatable thickness measurements on parts where access to the opposite surface is difficult or impossible. They can also calculate and display Material Sound Velocity or Time-of-Flight to determine material characteristics. Measurements are instantly displayed as large numerals on the backlit display.

An optional Live Waveform Mode on the 35DL and 35DL-HP allows the operator to view ultrasound waveform (or A-scan) real-time while making measurements on parts with complex geometries. In addition, an Adjust Mode allows the operator to make transducer setup adjustments to maximize measurement performance in challenging applications. A Freeze Mode instantly freezes the display to capture critical thickness measurements.

An important benefit of these gages is their versatility to make accurate thickness measurements on metals, plastics, glass, rubber, castings, fiberglass, and composites in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and geometries. The Models 35 and 35DL can measure steel as thin as 0.006" (0.15mm) and as thick as 25" (500mm). Plastic can be measured down to 0.003" (0.08mm). The Models 35HP and 35DLHP are uniquely designed for materials such as fiberglass, composites, rubber, and castings that are difficult or impossible to measure using standard ultrasonic gages. They measure from 0.050" to 20" (1.25 to 500mm). A unique feature, Application Auto-Recall, allows the operator to select and recall any of the stored standard or custom transducer setups in the gage's memory. This permits easy switching among a variety of contact, delay line, and immersion transducers to solve an almost infinite number of measurement problems. In addition, a host of other features such as Alarm Mode and Differential Mode evolve these gages ideal for many difficult applications.

The 35DL and 35DL-HP feature a file based alphanumeric internal data logger that allows the operator to store, recall, and transmit thickness measurements with Identification Codes.
