Coating thickness measurement with beta rays.

The BETASCOPE® is a module for upgrading a FISCHERSCOPE® MMS® PC2 basic instrument. It is designed to determine the thickness of organic and metallic coatings on a wide variety of substrates, provided there is a sufficiently large difference between the atomic order numbers of the coating and base material.

Easy to use.

Simple device operation and graphically supported user guidance

Unique in the market.

Fischer is one of a few measuring instrument manufacturers with beta sources

Perfect fit.

Device fits specifically to your measurement and testing requirements
