An AGT400 isotope thickness gauge has been installed at an automotive plant in Smyrna, Tennessee to monitor tight tolerances of steel. This gauge is located on a 1,900 mm. blanking line and will be measuring steel with a thickness range of 0.5 to 1.4 mm. Non-contact gauges are adding value and even higher quality standards […]

Isotope thickness gauges are actually transmission gauges. This means they transmit radiation through the material to be measured. Physics blessed us with an isotope (Am241) that emits constant gamma radiation at an energy level (60 keV) ideal for measuring steel. Thin steel blocks a little of the radiation, and thicker steel blocks most of it. […]
Advanced Gauging has shipped an AGT400 isotope thickness gauge to Nissan Motor Manufacturing Corporation in Tennessee. This gauge will be installed on a 1,900 mm. blanking line and measure steel with a thickness range of 0.5 to 1.4 mm. Startup and commissioning of the gauge is scheduled for later this month.
