Products & Services
Material Thickness

The Elcometer range of ultrasonic material thickness gauges has been designed specifically to be easy to use, calibrate, take readings and create inspection reports.

With a wide range of measurement modes including: Pulsed Echo (PE), Echo Echo ThruPaint™ (EE) and Velocity Mode (VM), and a wide range of intelligent dual element transducers, the new ultrasonic non destructive thickness gauges can measure the material thickness of virtually any material such as metals, plastics, glass, epoxies and ceramics.

Ideal for measuring material thickness when only one side of the material is accessible, the ultrasonic thickness gauges can measure the material thickness and sound velocity of coated and uncoated surfaces.

From a steel thickness gauge to a gauge which ignores the thickness of the coating, Elcometer has a complete range of ultrasonic thickness gauges to meet your specific requirements.

Bolt Tension Monitors

The BG80 bolt tension monitor accurately measures this elongation allowing the gauges to accurately measure time (nanoseconds), elongation, load, stress, and %strain of the bolt.

Elcometer BG80 Bolt Tension Monitor

The BG80 Bolt Tension Monitor accurately measures elongation allowing the gauges to accurately measure time (nanoseconds), elongation, load, stress, and %strain of the bolt.


User definable limits for pass/fail indication

Set limits for pass/fail indication on individual reading or for each batch with audible & visual warnings.


Choose & customise the reading display

With a choice of display and measurement modes, the user can select the most appropriate option for their needs; Elongation, Load, Stress, and %Strain, RF, Rectified, Large Digits with Limits Bar.

Elcometer BG80 Bolt Tension Monitor

When nuts and bolts are fastened together under load the action of tightening the nut increases the force applied to the bolt causing elongation.

By using ultrasonics, bolt tension monitors are not affected by temperature, friction or resistance factors affecting the accuracy of standard torque measurement techniques - giving the BG80TDL accuracy within 0.0001mm (0.00001 inch).

Using the gauge's USB interface together with the optional shut off accessory the gauge can be programmed to automatically stop the tightening process when the appropriate load has been applied.


  • Range of display & measurement options including: Elongation, Load, Stress, and %Strain, RF, Rectified, Large Digits with Limits Bar
  • BG80TDL features temperature compensation to counteract measurement irregularity caused by temperature change
  • Data storage capability: 4GB internal memory
  • Auto Set feature automatically optimizes detection and adjusts display
  • Hi/Lo Alarm tolerance limits work in conjunction with the data port
