Among the products Elcometer, Inc will display are three Ultra/Scan scanning probes for its Elcometer 456 coating thickness gage designed to measure dry film thickness on ferrous or non-ferrous metal substrates. The gage features memory capacity of as many as 150,000 readings in as many as 2,500 individual batches with alpha-numeric identification and output to ElcoMaster software.

Measurement accuracy capability is ±1 percent on smooth, rough, thin and curved surfaces, and measuring speed is more than 70 readings per minute (140+ readings per minute with the Ultra/Scan probes). The probes come fitted with “snap-on” replaceable plastic end caps so that the sliding action of the scan does not cause wear to the probe tips. The probes use the gage’s offset feature to ensure that the thickness of the cap is included in the calibration adjustment process and discounted from the thickness readings.

Faraday's Children (and Nickel) - The 40th William Blum Lecture

This article is a re-publication of the 40th William Blum Lecture, presented at the 86th AESF Annual Convention in Detroit, Michigan on June 21, 1999. In this lecture, Dr. George DiBari describes the search for the ideal nickel anode material and the outlook for survival of nickel plating at the end of the 20th century.  The closing section is a tribute to prior award winners and to some of the people that he worked with at Inco.
