Touchstone 1
Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

Overview of the Touchstone 1 ultrasonic thickness gauge

The Touchstone 1 is a high performance UT gauge, low cost, simple to use handheld thickness gauge, often known as an ultrasonic thickness gage in the USA, or an ultrasonic wall thickness gauge. It is suitable for use in a variety of applications in NDT (non-destructive testing) and is capable of measuring most engineering materials including plastic, glass, copper, cast iron and aluminium as well as a wide range of steels. The Touchstone 1 is simple to calibrate and operate and produces accurate and reproducible results.

The Touchstone 1 ultrasonic thickness gage is widely used in the marine industry by marine surveyors and CLASS surveyors. Ultrasonic thickness testing in quality control during manufacturing and as an inspection tool to measure remaining wall thickness of materials subject to erosion and corrosion.
