The new thickness gauge from IDM Instruments Pty. Ltd., Australia, measures the
thickness of high-loft nonwoven material via digital readout. Designed and produced to meet ASTM
standards, the gauge features a 200-millimeter (mm) range with readability of 0.01 mm, a load cell
fitted inside the base plate electrical controls to provide defined load reading, and precise
parallelism of the presser foot when lowered onto the base plate to obtain measurements.
