Working Procedure of Fabric Thickness Tester
Fabric Thickness Tester 
Determination of thickness of fabric samples in laboratory is usually carried out with the help of a precision thickness gauge. In this equipment, the fabric whose thickness is to be determined is kept on a flat anvil and a circular pressure foot is pressed on to it from the top under a standard fixed load. The Dial Indicator directly gives the Thickness in mm.

Working Procedure of Fabric Thickness Tester
The fabric sample that is to be measured is kept on an anvil.
The press foot is gently lowered on to the specimen.
The reading is taken to get the thickness of the specimen.
The flat circular indenter of the micrometer exerts the specified pressure on the fabric sample.
The above procedure is repeated to obtain the values of thickness at least at 3 different locations.
The mean value of all the readings of thickness determined to the nearest 0.01m is calculated and the result is the average thickness of the sample under test.
