Versatile usable coating thickness gauge

The universally applicable coating thickness gauges of the Surfix ® easy X family are suitable for everyday use in the operations as well as for demanding laboratory measurements. The Surfix ® easy X series is ideal for customers who want to measure coating thickness in a simple way, but also reqiure a statistical evaluation, a wear-resistant measuring and a high production quality "Made in Germany".

A one-point calibration function is available for carrying out difficult measuring tasks. With this calibration function, also called "zeroing", the measurement accuracy can be increased. The built-in online statistic allows a fast display of mean value and standard deviation as well as the largest and smallest measured value.

The Surfix® easy X are offered as Surfix® easy X I with an integrated probe and as Surfix® easy X E with external, firmly connected probe. Both variants are available as combination devices FN for coating thickness measurements on iron/steel and non-ferrous metals and as F-types for coating thickness measurements exclusively on iron/steel. Two proven measuring methods for the thickness measurement are applied: the magnetic and the eddy current process (DIN EN ISO 2178 and 2360). Both offer the highest precision even in the case of thin coatings, on steel as well as on non-ferrous metals. The FN types use both methods; The selection is done automatically when the probe is set on the measurement object.

Area of application

All probes of the Surfix® easy X family are designed with a V-groove thus enabling stable vertical positioning on level, cylindrical or curved surfaces. The gauges are use in many different industries and for various applications:

  • In Paint shops
  • For paint coatings and powder coating technology
  • For automotive assessment and in car Workshops
  • In steel construction, car manufacturing and ship Building
  • At reception areas for incoming goods
  • During the production process
  • At final inspection and quality assurance
  • In Laboratories
