Thickness Gauges

A thickness gauge is a device that determines the thickness of thin wall or coating. This is often done with a the use of a ultrasonic transducer. Ultrasonic waves propagated in the layer being measured at a known wavespeed and reflect back to the transducer when they encounter an interface. The transit time of the wave in the material can be correlated to the thickness of the layer.
