| Welcome to Cygnus Instruments and the “Original”
Digital Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Metal Thickness Gauge
Cygnus gauges were designed and manufactured out of a need in the marketplace for a reliable, hand held, digital thickness gauge. The first gauge was designed in 1983 by a marine surveyor who specialized in the inspection of large oil carriers. These gauges were built to overcome the rigors of gauging at sea where surfaces can be heavily corroded or coated with layers of paint or protective coatings.
Cygnus Instruments, Inc.'s main objective is to combine the multiple echo technique used in a “flaw detector” with digital technology. Cygnus is a pioneer in the development of the world's first digital, multiple echo ultrasonic metal thickness gauge. The gauges are capable of measuring on rough corroded surfaces with minimal surface preparation. Coatings such as paint or epoxy do not have to be removed in order to measure the steel.
Most important is the fact that you get a true, honest, accurate, verified thickness measurement. This is the real meaning of “multiple echoes.”
Cygnus Instruments, Inc.'s philosophy is to work closely with each of their customers to provide a range of products specifically for each application. Cygnus gauges are designed to be simple to use and to withstand the harsh environments that they are intended for.
Cygnus Instruments are dedicated to product development. They constantly work on new applications and monitor industry trends in order to develop products as they are required.
