Magna-Mike 8600

The Magna-Mike® 8600 is a portable thickness gage that uses a simple magnetic method to make reliable and repeatable measurements on nonferrous materials. Operation of the Magna-Mike is very simple. Measurements are made when its magnetic probe is held or scanned on one side of the test material and a small target ball (or disk or wire) is placed on the opposite side or dropped inside a container. The probe's Hall Effect sensor measures the distance between the probe tip and target ball. The measurements are instantly displayed on the large color thickness display.

Two New Probe Designs with Replaceable Wear Caps

The Magna-Mike is available with both straight and angled magnetic probes that feature replaceable wear caps to extend the probe's durability and reduce replacement costs.

Removable Standard Wear Cap

Removable Chisel Tip Wear Cap

Measures from 0.001 mm (0.0001 in.) to 25.4mm (1 in.)

The Magna-Mike offers an expanded list of target options (six different target balls, two target disks and a wire target) to greatly extend its measurement capability.

Internal Alphanumeric Data Logger

The Magna-Mike® has an extensive file-based alphanumeric data logger that is designed to easily store and transfer thickness readings.

You have the ability to store thickness readings in one of four standard file formats: Incremental, Sequential, Sequential with Custom Point and 2-D Grid.

  • Single Send or File Send directly to an Excel spread sheet using WINXL
  • Send data to other SPC program
  • Both USB and RS-232 outputs
  • Export files to a removable MicroSD card in .txt and CSV formats
  • Generate on-board reports

Direct Interface to Excel Spread Sheets

The Magna-Mike 8600 has RS-232 and USB outputs that enable the instrument to directly send data to an Excel spread sheet. The included WINXL interface program enables you to single send or file send thickness readings.
