MBT 7200xt/7400xt

Portable, high-precision thickness measurement for non-ferrous materials

The MBT 7200xt and MBT 7400xportable thickness measuring devices offer the capability to precisely measure materials up to 24mm thick. The small size and portability of the device enables it to be operated in production areas and quality laboratories. The MBT provides easy, non-destructive and highly accurate thickness measurement of all types of non-ferrous products, regardless of their size, shape, or material. It is ideal for applications where accurate measurements of sharp corners, small radii, and/or complex shapes are required.

The MBT is designed to permit optimal flexibility for testing a wide range of material of different thickness. Two sensor probes and a series of precision engineered target ball sizes facilitate accurate and repeatable measurements for material thickness ranging from 0-24mm. The all-digital design offers superior performance and eliminates the issue of noise interference with other equipment.

Operating principal – the MBT utilizes the “Hall Effect” principal to precisely determine the distance between the magnetic probe and precision target balls.
