Caliper Thickness Gauge


In the world of packaging and material testing, precision matters. Whether you’re working with paper, film, or other substrates, understanding their thickness is crucial. Enter the Caliper Thickness Gauge, a powerful tool that provides accurate measurements and ensures quality control. In this blog post, we’ll explore what the gauge is, how it works, and why it’s essential for your industry.

What Is a Caliper Thickness Gauge?

The Caliper Thickness Gauge is a handheld device designed to measure the thickness of various materials in sheet form. Here are some key features:

  1. Versatility: It can measure the thickness of paper, film, foil, laminate, tapes, and labels.
  2. Contact Pressure: The gauge applies a specified contact pressure to the material, ensuring consistent and reliable measurements.

How Does It Work?

  1. Placement: Place the material between the two flat surfaces of the gauge.
  2. Measurement: The offset (space between the two points) corresponds to the material’s thickness.
  3. Accuracy: The gauge provides precise readings, allowing you to assess material quality.


  • Packaging Industry: Ensure consistent thickness for labels, tapes, and packaging materials.
  • Printing: Optimize print quality by measuring paper thickness.
  • Manufacturing: Monitor material thickness during production.
