Coating thickness gauges for non-destructive measurement –QNix® brand by Automation Dr. Nix

The quality of your coting thickness is very important in terms of product cost, product performance and product life cycle. Dry Film Thickness or Coating thickness / paint thickness gauges play an important role in determining this quality, used during the application and inspection of the coatings. Applying coatings according to paint manufacturer’s specifications and regular thickness measurements reduces cost of product maintenance. Both mechanical and electronic coating thickness gauge (also called dry film thickness gauges, paint meter or paint thickness meter) non-destructively measures the dry film thickness (DFT) on metal substrates, such as powder coatings, anodizing and electroplating on metal substrates such as steel, iron, aluminum, zinc or copper.

Without compromising on quality, the Automation Dr. Nix - QNix® brand offers a wide range of dry film thickness for precise and non-destructive measurement of coatings. We draw back from decades of experience in heavy-duty corrosion protection, industrial painting and contract coating, surface finishing with galvanized and anodic coatings as well as vehicle assessment and bodywork to design our gauges.

Automation Dr. Nix works closely with customers, take specific requirements of different sectors into account in the further development of our coating thickness gauges. The Coating/ Paint Thickness meters/ gauges are characterized by an easy and intuitive operation, repeatable measurements which is true to our motto of "place, measure, read". Nowhere else, QNix® brand of Paint Thickness gauges are developed and manufactured only in Germany. This underlines the commitment to quality with 3 years of warranty. Certificate of Calibration shows traceability to Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt  (PTB) – an equivalent to the NIST in the USA and the NPL in Great Britain. 

Automation Dr. Nix Paint / Coating thickness gauges for non-destructive measurement – QNix® series. Facts about QNix coating thickness Gauges - Paint QNix® gauges If you have been doing one and the same thing and improving by learning for over 6 decades, you can call youself a an expert. Desiging and manufacturing coating thickness gauge is the core competence of Automation Dr. Nix. A type II (2) or electronic Paint / coating thickness gauge (also called dry film thickness gauges, paint meter or paint thickness meter) measures the dry film thickness (DFT) on metal substrates non-destructively. QNix paint / Coating thickness Gauges operate on the electromagnetic induction principle, Hall sensor principle and the Eddy current principle. Derived from these principles, sensors are designed for a variety of industrial applications. The two Fe measuring principles allow for coating thickness measurement of dry coating, powder coatings, anodizing and electroplating on metal substrates such as steel, iron, aluminium, zinc or copper. A non-destructive QNix® coating thickness gauge measures the Paint / coating thickness on metal substrates. The substrate must either be magnetic or electrically conductive. The NFe measuring principle allows for coating thickness measurement of electrically insulated coating thickness on electrically conductive substrates; Automation Dr. Nix offers a broad range of dry film thickness for precise and non-destructive measurement in a many industries, including automotive manufacturing, automotive aftersales, corrosion protection, powder coating, car body shops, product finishing, meteorology, laboratory, etc,. The many years of working with experts in heavy-duty corrosion protection, gas, industrial painting and contract coating, surface finishing and bodywork, makes Automation Dr. Nix a reliable partner in these industries. QNix coating thickness gauges are one of the most reliable, easy to use, durable and are proven to pass the Repeatability & Reproducibility (R & R) test. All QNix coating/ Paint thickness gauges conform to to national and international standards such as: DIN EN ISO 2808 DIN EN ISO 2178 - Magnetic induction with electromagnet and measurement with secondary coil (magnetic induction measurement method), Magnetic induction with electromagnet and measurement with Hall sensor, Magnetic induction with permanent magnet and measurement with Hall sensor DIN EN ISO 2360 - Eddy current method DIN 50981 BS 5411 (11). Countries with high aspirations for quality standards have organizations responsible for coordinating the national measurement system, hence provide traceability of measurement results to reference standards that are internationally recognized. 

 

How and what to measure with QNix Coating Thickness Gauges by Automation Dr. Nix

A non-destructive QNix® brand coating thickness gauge measures the coating thickness on metal substrates. The coating base must either be magnetized or electrically conductive for this purpose. Our paint meters / gauges then use the right measurement method. The development of our paint thickness testers / gauges conforms to national and international standards such as: DIN EN ISO 2808, DIN EN ISO 2178, DIN EN ISO 2360, DIN 50981, BS 5411 (11). Non-destructive coating thickness measurement on metal substrates can be roughly divided into two measurement methods: Measurement on a ferromagnetic substrate such as iron or steel: The type of substrate and the associated measurement mode usually have the brief designation Fe. The measurement methods utilized here are those that take advantage of magnetic induction. A magnetic field is generated by a permanent magnet or electromagnet and measured with a Hall sensor (electromagnet or permanent magnet possible) or a secondary coil (only electromagnets). Measurement on non-ferrous or non-ferromagnetic but electrically conductive substrate such as aluminum, zinc, copper, brass and certain stainless steel types: This type of substrate and the associated measurement mode are designated with NFe. The eddy current method is utilized.

Automation Dr. Nix offers a wide Paint gauges and probes for many fields of application. All conventional measurement methods are used: Magnetic induction with electromagnet and measurement with secondary coil (magnetic induction measurement method) – DIN EN ISO 2178. Magnetic induction with electromagnet and measurement with Hall sensor – DIN EN ISO 2178. Magnetic induction with permanent magnet and measurement with Hall sensor – DIN EN ISO 2178. Eddy current method – DIN EN ISO 2360.
