Novascope 6000

Powerful Thickness Gauge Solution for Difficult Applications

The Novascope 6000 is an all-digital portable ultra-high precision thickness gauging instrument. Currently on its sixth generation, the Novascope series has been in use since the 1980s by top air foils manufacturers and reconditioning and cast structural manufacturing facilities worldwide. With easy-to-use touchscreen controls, class leading ultra-thin spatial resolution, and high resolution (.0001in, .0025mm), the Novascope 6000 tackles the most challenging thickness gauging applications. Featuring a brilliant color display, the Novascope 6000 offers a clear and precise waveform even in the most difficult lighting conditions. The latest version is backward compatible and allows the Novascope 6000 to be a direct drop-in replacement. Computer-based data transfer software comes included as a standard feature.
