New DFT Gage Comes in Two Models
A new dry-film-thickness gage for measuring coating thickness on metal substrates has been introduced by DeFelsko (Ogdensburg, New York), an inspection instrument manufacturer.
The new PosiTest DFT features a speed of over 60 readings per minute, the company says, along with onscreen averaging for up to 99 readings. It features a high-contrast LCD display that auto-rotates.
The gage comes in two models—Ferrous, for measuring nonmagnetic coatings on steel, and Combo, for measuring nonmagnetic coatings on all nonconductive metal substrates, including aluminum and brass. According to DeFelsko, the Combo model automatically recognizes the substrate.
The instrument includes a ruby-tipped probe with a V-groove, a built-in wrist strap and the capacity to measure in mils or microns.
The PosiTest DFT is intended for use by paint applicators, powder coaters, inspectors and more, the company says.
