A standard thickness gauge for leather which can be adapted to meet most international standards. The gauge is manufactured to close tolerances and can be used as a quality control instrument.
It is crucial that any thickness gauge applies a controlled pressure (kPa) to the material whose thickness is being measured. SATRA uses a deadweight system removing the uncertainty of other mechanical devices. This system ensures that the thickness is being measured under the same controlled conditions for each sample. The SATRA system ensures excellent repeatability of results. To measure the thickness of any sample, lift the deadweight by operating the lever and insert the material between the anvil and the presser foot. Lower the deadweight using the same lever.
