Magnamike 8600

PET is a strong, lightweight material that is used in a wide variety of products, including beverage containers, food packaging, and synthetic fibers. The thickness of the walls of PET containers is an important quality control parameter. It affects the strength and rigidity of the container, as well as its ability to withstand pressure and changes in temperature. Measuring the wall thickness of PET containers is thus essential for ensuring their quality and safety. Thus, with the help of the Magnamike 8600 wall thickness gauge, you will be able to test the wall thickness of PET products like bottles, cans, etc.

Here in this blog, we are going to provide you the information about how you can easily maintain Magnamike 8600 wall thickness gauge. But first, we will discuss brief information on the wall thickness gauge and how this lab testing instrument is helpful in maintaining the bottle quality. So, let us get started!

Introduction about wall thickness gauge

In order to ensure that the products they deliver meet customer expectations, manufacturers need to test the quality of their PET bottles. Wall thickness is one of the key factors that need to be controlled in order to ensure that the bottles are strong enough to withstand the rigors of use. Magnamike 8600 wall thickness measurement testing instrument comes with a magnetic probe to determine the wall thickness of materials with ease. This testing instrument will work on the principle of hall’s effect making it easy for you to perform destructive testing on the materials with ease.

By measuring the thickness of the wall of a PET bottle, manufacturers can ensure that their products meet the highest standards of quality. This lab testing equipment has been equipped with high-end features that include a large colored VGA display, and a high-quality solid-state electrolyte cell with a special manufacturing technique.

Its principle of operation is also simple. You can also read more on the work of Magnamike 8600. Now, let us focus on the features and technical specifications of this lab testing instruments.

Tips to maintain Magnamike 8600-wall thickness gauge

In order to make sure that this testing instrument will work for a longer period of time, you need to maintain it. Thus, to ease its maintenance, you can follow the tips mentioned below.

  • If the Magna-Mike 8600 is to be used with a rechargeable battery, only use Olympus battery P/N: 600-BAT-L [U8760056]. Do not use this battery with other products.
  • Do not attempt to power or charge other electronic equipment with the charger/adaptor (P/N: EP-MCA-X) as this could cause death or serious personal injury as the result of an explosion.
  • The Magna-Mike 8600 probe contains strong magnets and the instrument can be used with strong magnetic target balls.
  • Do not bring a magnet near a person who has a pacemaker or electrical medical device or near any other electrical medical.

By following these tips, you can assure the longevity of this testing instrument and get accurate testing results. If you want to conduct a free sample testing session, then give us a call at +91-9210903903 or email us at Our team of technical experts will consult you regarding all your queries.
