PGM 60 is a portable handheld gloss meter or gloss tester used to evaluate the shine on different material surfaces. The gloss tester includes a 3.5" TFT touchscreen display, internal memory and PC-compatible software for detailed analysis. Measurements of gloss units (GU) are commonly taken during the manufacturing of products held to high quality standards.
Therefore, it can be said that the main areas of usage of a gloss meter are incoming goods and quality control where the gloss meter is used as a test device to determine whether the condition of a product is flawless.
The included PC-compatible software for the gloss meter supports the user in analyzing the measured data and to represent the data graphically. Additionally, the user has the possibility to save the measured data directly to the internal memory of the gloss meter. The gloss meter's internal memory has a capacity for storing up to 1000 measured values. The PGM 60 gloss meter has a measuring geometry or angle of 60 degrees.
