TMG universal thickness gauge - ASTM, DIN, EN & ISO norms

Made in GermanyThe new TMG series of thickness gauges provide highest accuracy in the measurement of material thicknesses.

The TMG universal thickness gauges have a simple design and are easy to operate: to measure the material correctly, you only have to lift the measuring probe above the wire lift trigger and then lower it to the material to be measured, while applying the specific measuring pressure of the respective measuring standard.

Thanks to its modular system, you can adapt the three basic types TMG-1, TMG-2 and TMG-3  and a large number of ASTM, DIN, EN and ISO standards can be combined without being obliged to buy several measuring devices. Please refer to the table below for more extensive information.

Ready-made solutions for the most common materials such as elastomers, textiles, leather, nonwoven, films, rubber, fabrics, geomaterials, paper, paper towels and cardboard can be offered by us as well as customized special solutions. Please check the table below for more detailed information on all available models and feel free to contact us for an individual offer.

Only the most superior quality of raw materials is used in the manufacturing of the TMG thickness gauge as shown by the massive laboratory grade granite table, stainless steel column and the highest quality aluminum boom on the TMG-1 and TMG-2 stainless steel models of the TMG-3. High quality materials do not only guarantee longevity, but also high corrosion resistance even when used in very humid rooms.

To conclude, these are essential prerequisites for ensuring a constant measuring pressure over a longer period of time and thus reproducible measuring results.

List of standards for ready-made configurations:

  •     ISO-5084 for textiles
  •     ASTM D 1777 Option 2 for textiles
  •     ISO-23529 for rubber / elastomers
  •     ASTM D3767 for rubber / elastomers
  •     DIN EN ISO 12625-3 for waterproofing membranes
  •     ASTM D 1777 Option 1 for fiber fabrics, knitwear, knitwear and structural textiles
  •     ASTM D 1777 Option 5 for ceilings and pile fabrics
  •     ISO 4593 + DIN 53370 for films and films
  •     DIN EN ISO 2589 for leather
  •     ASTM D 1777 Option 3 for Films and Glass Fibers
  •     ASTM D 5199 for geosynthetics
  •     DIN EN 534 for paper and cardboard
  •     DIN EN ISO 3034 for corrugated board

For detailed information, please see the table below for the models available. If the appropriate standard is not available, please contact us for an individual solution.

Two options are available for the certification of your gauge:

1. A manufacturer calibration certificate or

2. A DAkkS calibration, which refers purely to the dial gauge.

 A combination of both options is also possible to meet the highest standard. In addition optional software for processing the measurement data is available.

  • Very high accuracy and excellent workmanship
  • Granite measuring bench in laboratory quality
  • Modular building block system and individual customer solutions cover every need
  • 14 preconfigured versions
  • Manufacturer calibration certificate and DAkkS calibration optional
  • Standard versions preconfigured for the most common ASTM, DIN, EN and ISO
  • Data output for processing the measurement data with the optionally available software
