Thickness Measurement

This K-Metron measures mould wall thicknesses of rotomoulded parts up to 20mm.

All non-ferrous materials can be measured with the K-Metron:

  • Plastics of any density or composition
  • Multi-layer products
  • Foamed materials
  • Laminates
  • Fibreglass
  • Carbon composites
  • Glass
  • Aluminium Moulds
  • Brass and copper

Using K-Metron

Holding the sensor head on the outside of the moulding immediately beside a hole of 25mm minimum, insert the magnetic cube or sphere ensuring that magnetic coupling is maintained between the two. The sensor head can now be tracked around the outside of the moulding whilst maintaining a magnetic coupling with the magnetic cube or sphere. The measurement will be displayed on the K-METRON and transmitted back to the radio receiver & PC software.
