Assess the uniformity in PET bottle walls with Magnamike 8600

Assess the uniformity in PET bottle walls with Magnamike 8600

Every type of industry has its own packaging requirements and needs. The PET bottle is one of the most commonly used packaging materials due to its characteristics. These bottles are lightweight and durable, which makes them the top choice for manufacturers to deliver products accurately to customers. Testing every single aspect of these PET products like durability, wall-thickness, closures and much more is necessary for delivering quality. Thus, to make it easy for PET bottle manufacturers to conduct the wall thickness test on PET bottles, we have come up with Magnamike 8600 wall thickness gauge. This is one of the amazing lab testing instruments that is used to test the wall thickness of non-ferrous materials like glass, preforms, plastics, and PET products. This high-quality testing equipment is used to make repeatable and reliable measurements and determine the wall thickness of the product.

Here in this article, we are going to provide you with information about how you can easily assess the uniformity in PET bottle walls with the help of this lab testing instrument. So, let us get started!

Perform accurate wall thickness tests on PET products with a wall thickness gauge

Wall thickness is a critical factor in the performance of any material. It determines the strength and rigidity of the material and can have a major impact on evaluating product quality. This can be useful for quality control purposes, especially for PET products. PET products are widely known for their durability and thus it is important for you to determine their wall thickness in order to assess their durability. The Magnamike 8600 wall thickness testing instrument has been designed by Olympus is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that work on Hall Effect technology and the magnetic probe will be used to test the wall thickness of the material.
When the user will held this magnetic probe near the surface of the material, and a tiny target ball is placed on the opposite side of the PET container, then one can easily take the measurements for its wall thickness.
This high-quality lab testing instrument will make it easy for PET bottle manufacturers in measuring the wall thickness of the materials. It has been equipped with high-end features that we have listed below.

How you can easily conduct a test with Magnamike 8600 wall thickness gauge?

If you're looking for a way to ensure the quality of your materials, wall thickness testing is a great option. This type of testing can help you identify any weak spots in your materials, and make sure that they meet your specifications. To conduct the wall thickness measurement test on the PET products, you can place the tiny target ball inside the container or bottle.
The probe tip will be placed on one side of the wall of the material and the steel ball will be placed on the other side. The hall sensor will be used for testing the thickness of the material with its powerful magnetic field surrounding the sensor.
The result will be displayed on a large color display to make it easy for the users to determine the test results. In this way, you can easily test the wall thickness of the material and make sure that the right material will be used to determine the wall thickness quality. You can also read about the working of the wall thickness gauges and operate this lab testing instrument efficiently.
