TGD 3000 Rubber Thickness Gauge

The TGD 3000 rubber thickness gauge is a cost efficient and easy to use instrument for measuring the thickness of rubber or rubber-like materials. Featuring a deadweight measurement system, confidence in results is controlled for each test. The TGD 3000 is recommended in the compression testing tools set including MonTech AO 3000 and CS 3000.


The TGD 3000 Thickness gauge is manufactured to close tolerances and performs as a superb quality control instrument. It is crucial that any thickness gauge applies a controlled pressure (kPa) to the material whose thickness is being measured. The TGD 3000 uses a deadweight system removing the uncertainty of other mechanical devices. This system ensures that the thickness is being measured under the same controlled conditions for each sample. This design ensures excellent repeatability of results. To measure the thickness of any sample, lift the deadweight by pressing the cable release or optional lever and insert the material between the anvil and the presser foot.

The deadweight is lowered automatically by releasing the button. From there the thickness reading is obtained. Precise measurements are guaranteed. Optional gauge blocks are available for verifications and calibration.
