The GE Inspection Technologies DMS Go Thickness Gauge combines an intuitive user interface, powerful data management, and an ability to provide accurate, reliable and comprehensive thickness inspection data. It has automatic gain control for excellent repeatability and corrosion monitoring. The main unit comes in three models:
DMS Go+ Basic
Uses A-scan verification and is compatible with high quality D-Meter dual element probes to handle a wide range of corrosion thickness applications.
DMS Go+ (Base)
Takes the basic features and adds B-scan (timed) for cross-sectional view and compatibility with single element probes for precision thickness measurement and temperature compensated readings up to 1000°F (540°C).
DMS Go+ Advanced
Can do all of the above and provides additional features of 6 data recording file structures plus 3D & 4D via UltraMATE and TopCoat/Auto-V measurement capabilities to eliminate removal of many coatings.

This product can be used in the following applications:
Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Crane Arm Pin Monitoring
The Background: The customer maintains large construction cranes and is looking for a way to determine the condition of the hinge pin that links the crane booms. Due to the immense weight of the booms, the pins can develop cracks which may eventually shear resulting in catastrophic failure.
The Problem: It is difficult to determine the condition of the pin, which is about 2” in diameter, when it’s installed due to its location inside the hinge assembly. Only the ends of the pin are visible and accessible.
The Solution: Using the GE Inspection Technologies DMS Go Thickness Gauge and a standard 5mhz probe, the customer can climb out to the hinge pin, while still in use, and measure its thickness down the shaft. The technician knows how long the pin is supposed to be and any thickness reading below this indicates the pin as cracked and separated. The crane can then be safely decommissioned for repair as needed.
Plastic Bottle Manufacturing
The Background: Our customer manufactures plastic bottles and seeks a method of spot checking the thickness of bottles as they come off the production line as part of their quality assurance protocol.
The Problem: Plastic returns a fairly weak signal which is compounded by the thinness of the bottle wall. This makes thickness testing a bit more difficult than usual.
The Solution: We recommended the GE Inspection Technologies DMS Go+ with the Alpha DFR-P transducer. The DMS Go+ is ideal for this application due to its high level of control over the gain and gate of the measurement, making it easier to identify weak signals. The DFR-P was chosen for its ability to read down to 0.005" in plastics.
