miro-gloss: Intelligent gloss measurement with smart communication

Auto diagnosis: Standard OK - Calibration OK

 

Accurate readings require reliable calibration. The gloss meter and calibration holder make a perfect couple - the calibration standard is always protected in the holder of the micro-gloss.
The intelligent auto diagnosis of the gloss meter is a unique feature which guarantees long-term calibration stability and tells you when to calibrate. It even checks whether the standard is clean.

Operator friendly. Safe.

Technical Performance: Unsurpassed in the industry

No matter how harsh your production conditions are or how tight your limits may be, accuracy and reliability of the micro-gloss are proven by thousands of users to guarantee always the highest quality.

 

The long-term stable LED light source provides highly repeatable and temperature stable results - whether you are in the lab or move to a “hot spot” on the line.

It will never burn out and is guaranteed with a 10 year warranty on the lamp life.

 

Our patented calibration procedure during the production enables an excellent inter-instrument agreement. No matter how far your customer may be away, if he is one of the thousands of micro-gloss users, he will read the same values as you.

micro-TRI-gloss sees gloss changes under the right angle. International standards define 3 geometries for measuring matte to high gloss surfaces. With micro-TRI-gloss you always have the right angle on hand and quickly recognize quality variations.

The smart way to communicate: smart-chart Software

  • Measure your products offline or online and transfer the results to smart-chart. Immediately, you will get a professional QC-report, including data table and graph.
  • Setup your product specifications in the Standard Management module, with Pass/Fail limits for display in your QC-reports.
  • The smart-process module automates process control of products with multiple measurement locations: Organizers for menu guided test sequences and clear sample identification can be customized for your application.
  • Monitor your process stability with scorecards, trend reports and SPC charts.

Brilliant color display: easy to read - easy to use

Ergonomics and easy handling were the main focus for the design. The micro-gloss is not too large and not too small - it feels just right in your hand.
The scroll wheel operation and new color display with an easy-to-navigate menu make gloss measurement easier than ever before.
Statistics, Pass/Fail or Continous measuring - micro-gloss has all needed tools for any task.

Small gloss changes are most visible on matte finishes. In order to guarantee a uniform look, very tight tolerances are specified. The micro-gloss S family offers improved performance for 60° gloss in the critical low gloss range. This excellent accuracy can be guaranteed due to our patented alignment during production.

Gloss and Film Thickness in one Instrument

An efficient coatings process should use as little paint as possible and fulfill the quality specifications given by the customer. Gloss and film thickness are important QC criteria for coatings.

 

The micro-TRI-gloss μ measures both, at the same position and within a second. This saves time and is ideal for checks in the field - only one instrument to carry.

  • Simultaneous display 20°, 60°, 85° - for high gloss to matte coatings
  • Dual film thickness sensor Fe/NFe - measures thickness on steel as well as on aluminum

Small port for small parts

Today, many products consist of different parts with different sizes and are supposed to have a uniform appearance. Often small parts are integrated in a large part or connect parts such as frames, buttons or decorative trim pieces. Their size and design make it difficult to evaluate with a classical gloss meter.


The micro-gloss XS is a 60° gloss meter with a small measuring area of 2x4 mm, an ideal solution to measure small parts and assure that they fit with the large components.
