TGD 3000

The TGD 3000 thickness gauge is a cost efficient and easy to use instrument for measuring the thickness of rubber of rubber-like materials. The constant force enables repeatable readings.

  • Instrument description

    TGD 3000

    Combining the CS 3000                    Compression set testing tools with the TGD 3000 thickness gauge and AO 3000 ageing oven creates a full testing set according to ISO815,                        DIN 53517, ASTM D 395, …

    A standard thickness gauge for rubber which can be adapted to meet most international standards.

    The gauge is manufactured to close tolerances and can be used as a quality control instrument. It is crucial that any thickness gauge applies a controlled pressure (kPa) to the material whose thickness is being measured.
    The TGD 3000 uses a deadweight system removing the uncertainty of other mechanical devices. This system ensures that the thickness is being measured under the same controlled conditions for each sample.


    “This design ensures excellent repeatability of results.”


    To measure the thickness of any sample, lift the deadweight by pressing the cable release or optionally lever and insert the material between the anvil and the presser foot.  The deadweight is lowered automatically be releasing the button and the thickness reading can be obtained.

    Precise measurements are guaranteed by the absolute measuring system without the need
    for referencing. Optional gauge blocks are available for verification and calibration.
