QNix® 1500, QNix® 1200

The coating thickness gauge for vehicle assessment

QNix® 1500 / 1200 is our recommendation for vehicle assessment


The QNix® 1500 is reliable, easy to use and durable. Therefore it is the most popular coating thickness gauge for applications in the motor vehicle sector and indispensable for motor vehicle experts.

Do you produce damage reports and value appraisals and require a coating thickness gauge for the vehicle assessment? Do you value easy operation and reliable results? 

If so, the QNix® 1500 is the right gauge for you. 

Due to the 3-point contact, you can position the QNix® 1500 easily and safely and always receive reliable measurement results. 

By means of two independent measurement probes, you instantly recognise on which basic substrate you are taking a measure. You can take coating thickness measurements on steel, iron (Fe) and non-ferrous metals (NFe) like aluminium, zinc, copper and brass. 

All QNix® coating thickness gauges function according to our easy-to-use principle: position, measure and read.

All the advantages of QNix® at a glance:

  • Easy operation: Position - measure - read

  • High accuracy and precision

  • Easy zero-point calibration

  • Durable ruby measuring head tip
