Plating thickness checking in hot condition





October 6, 2008

I am working in a Brake lining manufacturing company.We have hard chrome plated compression moulds with a thickness of 25~30 microns. Moulds working temp is 150 °C. What is the facility and method available to check the plating thickness in this hot condition? I want to cary out to cross check the plating thickness online.

There are magnetic devices. To my knowledge, they should work at that temperature w/o any problem. Maybe just a little re-calibration on a hot surface where the chrome thickness is known.
