Coating Thickness Gauge FSC1000


The FSC is a non-destructive measurement device for fast thickness measurement of paint and other electrically insulating layers on substrates such as carbon fiber-reinforced plastics (CFRP), CFRP with metallic lightning protection and metals. This mobile device consists of a sensor and a controller for operating and display purposes. The system operates in a non-destructive manner using microwaves in the ISM band without requiring any coupling medium. The Coating Thickness Gauge FSC1000 is, among other things, used in the aviation industry and is certified for use by renowned aircraft manufacturers.

The Coating Thickness Gauge FSC1000 is used to determine the coating thickness of CFRP and other substrates. It offers a measuring range of 1000 µm. In contrast to other measuring procedures, no minimum thickness is required. The measurement only lasts for approx. only 1 second. The plastic films included with known thickness allow for the substrate material used to be calibrated. The calibration data can be stored and loaded later. The measurement data can be exported via USB for further processing.


  • Measuring range: 0 … 1000 µm
