Paper Thickness Gauge

Determination of Paper Thickness Gauge is considerable importance, both for assuring conformity with design parameters and for evaluation of various physical properties determination of the thickness of paper sample in the laboratory is usually carried out with the help of a bench thickness gauge.The paper component whose thickness is to be determined is kept on a flat anvil and a circular indenter is pressed onto it from the top under a specified. The “METLOR” Bench Thickness Gauge for paper consists of a dial micrometer (or digital micrometer) fitted on a rigid metallic frame. the micrometer has a flat circular indenter, Which exerts the specified pressure on the paper sample whose thickness is being measured through a dead weight. the paper sample is kept on an anvil, which is in form of a flat circular platform. The axis of the indenter and the anvil coincide and are the same as the axis of movement of the indenter. The indenter can be raised and lowered gently onto the paper sample with the help of a lifting lever.
