Coating Thickness Measurement / CTM

High precision coating thickness measurement on magnetic and non-magnetic base materials.

  • Easy-to-use condition-based maintenance and wear monitoring of piston rings in 2-stroke engines
  • Measures non-magnetic coatings on magnetic or non-magnetic base materials
  • Automatically detects whether the base material is magnetic or non-magnetic
  • Compatible with LDM, trend-plotting software included
  • Reliable and non-destructive measurements even in hard-to-reach areas

The graph shows how the estimated time to next piston overhaul can be predicted using the CTM on the top piston ring of a modern 2-stroke engine. The piston ring wear rate varies from unit to unit, as a result from production tolerances and operating conditions giving opportunity for safer and less costly overhauling by practising condition-based monitoring with the CTM.

The CTM measures coating thickness on magnetic and non-magnetic base materials with high precision. It is user-friendly, sturdy and ideal for uncomplicated, reliable and non-destructive in-situ measurements

  • Ideal for condition based monitoring of piston rings in 2-stroke engines.
  • Measures non-magnetic coatings on magnetic base materials, such as chromium plated or plasma coated cast iron.
  • Also measures non-magnetic coatings on non- magnetic base materials, such as plastic coated stainless steel.
  • Automatically detects whether the base material is magnetic or non-magnetic.
  • Small enough to make reliable measurements even in hard to reach areas
