Superior Ultrasonic Handheld Thickness Tester

When it comes to having a handheld thickness gauge for your industry, it always pays to make sure you are getting the best devices from the world’s leading supplier: Cygnus Instruments. We have over 30 years of experience in researching, developing, testing, and manufacturing handheld thickness measuring equipment.

Our team of experts here are responsible for pioneering the industry changing Multiple Echo measurement method. The particular method was designed and introduced in order to be able to gain accurate readings through a coating up to 6 mm thick when using standard, and 20 mm thick when using “deep coat” mode. This new approach was quickly adopted as the industry standard and has been utilized around the world in handheld thickness testing equipment devices, including the Ultrasonic Hatch Cover Tester and the Underwater Thickness Meter.


Sometimes, less really can feel like more. If you are part of an industry where you need to take a large number of measurements that don’t vary in complexity, then having a handheld thickness gauge with a huge range of functions may be redundant. If you have been searching for an ultrasonic handheld thickness tester which will give reliable and accurate readings every time without having to select the right option through a myriad of different setups, then you will love the Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe.

This particular handheld thickness gauge is designed to use the multiple echo measurement mode with the single crystal probes. The device requires the bare minimum in terms of setting up, so you can be away in minutes. It comes with a twin shot injection moulded case, which is durable and acts as a sealed unit so dust and particles can’t damage the internal circuitry.


For the professional user who needs a handheld thickness gauge to be able to make a multitude of different measurements and have advanced data processing, exports, and analytics (such as graphical representation), then the Cygnus 6+ Pro is our top of the line option.

The case is protected by a shock-resistant ergonomic sleeve which adds to the durability. This ultrasonic handheld thickness tester is compatible with nine different probes (three for each measurement method, multiple echo, echo-echo, and single echo) so you can take advantage of each type’s specific benefits. A built-in SD makes data export as easy as possible for optimum convenience.
