Ultrasonic Thickness Gage Available With LCD Readout —Literature Available

Krautkramer-Branson has announced an LCD version of its widely used DM2 ultrasonic digital thickness gage. The new DM2 LCD features a large, high-contrast liquid crystal display and offers exceptional readability, even in direct sunlight.

Offering improved clarity under a variety of ambient lighting conditions, the new readout is intended to make the operator's job easier by reducing eye fatigue. Potential payoff includes reduction of recording errors and an increase in readings per hour, a bottom line of reduced costs and increased productivity.

Application flexibility is a key feature of the DM2. This versatile gage reads thickness to ±0.001 inch in a wide assortment of test materials. A broad selection of accessory transducers permits use of the DM2 on various test surfaces and configurations.

Designed for easy, fast operation, the DM2 can be operated by just about anyone after only a few minutes of instruction. The pocket-sized gage weighs only about 14 ounces, including rechargeable batteries. Batteries last at least eight hours under normal use. The DM2 has several convenience and performance features that are described in a free color brochure.

Krautkramer-Branson, Inc., a SmithKline Company, is the world's leading manufacturer of ultrasonic nondestructing testing devices.

The company's product line includes ultrasonic flaw detectors, thickness gages, hardness testers, and large, computer-interfaceable testing systems.
