Mechanical coating thickness measurement

If the high accuracy of electronic coating thickness measuring instruments is not necessary, the question about a simple and economical alternative sets itself up again and again. For these cases of application the coating thickness gauge "LEPTO-Pen" is the best choice. The LEPTO-Pen works on untempered commercial quality steel substrate according to the known magnetic attraction principle (EN ISO 2178). It is composed of a precision magnet and a mechanical spring balance, the scale of which is calibrated and labelled in µm coating thickness. The handling of the gauge is correspondingly easy.

LEPTO-Pen on a painted metal surface
The surface to be measured must be free from dust, oil or other pollution.
  • Place the LEPTO-Pen perpendicular to the surface so the magnet sticks to the surface.
  • Then pull the LEPTO-Pen slowly and with calm hand perpendicularly from the surface and watch the scale deflection.
  • The scale deflection value immediately before detaching of the magnet corresponds to the coating thickness to be measured.
 Technical Data
Scale: 0 to 800 µm / 0 to 30 mils. Measuring range: 10 to 500 µm / 0.25 to 20 mils. Measurement uncertainty within the measuring range: +/- 10% +/- 3 µm.
The stated values are valid for planar steel from St 52-3 (1.0570) with a thickness of 1 mm min. Similar values are applicable for most untempered steel grades.
Working temperature 0 °C to 40 °C
SLagertemperaturtorage temperature -20 °C to 50 °C
Permissible relative air humidity < 80 %
Working life min. 500,000 measurement cycles
