QNix® coating thickness gauges:
fast, precise and easy to use

QNix® 4500 / 4200 is our recommendation for heavy-duty corrosion protection, industrial painting and motor vehicle assessment

 


The 4000 series QNix® coating thickness gauges deliver precise and quick measurement results, are easy to use and extremely robust.

Are you looking for a universal coating thickness gauge that has proven itself time and again? Can you forego measured value memory or software-supported evaluation in your area of application?

Then the QNix® 4200 (for measurements on Fe) or the QNix® 4500 (for measurements on Fe and NFe) is the right coating thickness gauge for you.

Reliable measurement results on Fe and NFe metals

Thousands of users around the world have used the coating thickness gauges from the 4000 series for years. As a user you can also benefit from these successful models.

The QNix® 4200 gives you reliable measurement results on steel and iron (Fe). The QNix® 4500 lets you take measurements on steel, iron (Fe) and non-ferrous metals (NFe) like aluminium, zinc, copper and brass.

Broad range of applications and easy to use

QNix® devices from the 4000 series are available in a variety of different versions, such as with an integrated or cable probe or with an extended measuring surface of up to 5 mm. This lets you cover a very broad range of applications if need be. 

We want to make your work easier as a user. That is why all QNix® coating thickness gauges function according to our easy-to-use principle: simply position, measure and read.
