Retrofit your contact gauge with the latest non-contact laser thickness measurement technology.
Replacing outdated contact gauges is quick, easy, and can be performed with minimal downtime. The AGT600 Laser Thickness Gauge is designed to be a direct replacement for your current contact gauges. The C-frame is engineered to fit the existing track and can take advantage of the same motion control, hardware and programing.
The AGT600 has dedicated analog outputs for real-time thickness and deviation from target for closed loop process control feedback. In addition to feedback control, the system has full S.P.C. functionality for generating and storing detailed reports for batch, coil, and/or product run.
The AGT600 does not require critical mechanical parts to produce an accurate and repeatable thickness measurement, and maintenance is simply keeping the sensor heads clean and the system calibrated. No more scheduled downtime for the maintenance or replacement of transducers, measurement tips, guide rolls, or suspension components.
Guarantee the material thickness for every profile you form with the AGT600.
The AGT600 thickness gauge is the ideal system for roll forming lines and punching / shearing / blanking / bending lines, ensuring every form you produce meets your or your customer’s specification. The system provides a detailed report for each coil/batch of formed parts for S.P.C.analysis, your quality documentation and to provide to your customer.
Save time by implementing a simple visual inspection process. The AGT600’s digital outputs can be used to control a system that will mark areas of the strip that are out of tolerance. After the part is formed, inspectors can instantly identify suspect parts.
The AGT600 provides comprehensive production insights with our Supplier Evaluation Tool. Our software generates a useful and easy to manipulate daily or monthly report that details how much out of tolerance material was processed, and which supplier the material came from.
The AGT600 strip thickness gauge measure all kinds of metals, plastics, rubber, vinyl, linoleum and more. It provides fast and reliable thickness measurements using the latest in laser triangulation technology.
The standard system records and reports statistical process control (SPC) data for strip and sheet material. Data can be saved to local disk and/or over a network for easy recall of all material SPC information. This feature eliminates the need to maintain large files of printer paper for long-term record-keeping purposes.
Direct benefits include:
- Documented compliance with ISO9001, QS9000, and other quality specifications
- Reduced tooling and equipment ware by ensuring correct gauge is being used
- Increased productivity
- Scrap reduction
- Supplier consistency comparison
- Detailed material reports to the end user

Our simplified hardware design combined with Keyence’s ultra high speed, high accuracy laser sensors make the AGT600 the most reliable laser gauge in the industry.
A.G.T. will design a system to fit your application and installation is as easy as bolting the C-frame into place, mounting the junction box and running the cables through your existing cable carrier.
The AGT600’s dedicated analog outputs for real-time thickness and deviation from target thickness can be wired into the same machine control inputs used by your current
Our system features a fast and accurate calibration method, called ISOcal™ that establishes calibration over a range of samples and reports its calibration accuracy.
Gauging your strip at the entry of your roll forming line provides the highest resolution thickness data possible for your profiles.
All coil data is automatically stored on the system and/or on a networked drive. The data is available for analysis with our optional Offline Data Analysis Software, a spreadsheet or any S.P.C. package.
The AGT600 is a non-contact measurement system, so there is never any risk of our equipment creating marks or scratches on your material.
The AGT600 calibration procedure uses N.I.S.T. certified and traceable aluminum samples.
The AGT600 has a plug and play design. It can be permanently mounted on your line or can be mounted to a mobile stand to be moved from line to line.
The AGT600’s compact design is an excellent fit for application or lines where space is limited.
The Rugged Tablet upgrade includes a Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 with sixth-generation Intel Core i5vPro processor, 8GB DDR3L SDRAM, 256GB SSD hard disk, 10.1” WUXGA IPS display (1920 x 1200 resolution), 802.11ac wi-fi, Bluetooth v4.1 and Windows 10 operating system.
The Data Acquisition package includes eight (8) analog inputs (+/- 10V), two (2) analog outputs (+/- 2.5V), eight (8) digital I/O, wireless connectivity to the AGT600 tablet, tachometer counter for external tach input, and 100-ft tachometer cable assembly.
TCP/IP HMI communication enables the gauge to accept one TCP/IP streaming socket connection on a user defined port. This is done for the purpose of requesting information from the gauge or commanding certain actions to the gauge.
Off-line data analysis allows for easier access to coil reports by enabling the recall of reports from a single gauge or multiple gauges simultaneously through a company network or USB stick. The reports can be accessed without interrupting the gauge measurement or line operation and be formulated as PDF files.
The N.I.S.T. traceable sample includes a set of six, 6061-T6-651 alloy aluminum — certified and traceable to N.I.S.T. standards.
The custom calibration sample holder includes a black anodized finish.
