The thickness of a product - be it film, paper or nonwoven - has a direct influence on its quality. In the case of packaging material, for example, parameters such as air permeability and tear resistance must be exactly right. Otherwise it cannot fulfil its task of protecting products from external influences and guaranteeing their integrity. However, this can only be achieved if the material thickness is exactly as specified - and this for each individual production margin.
While homogeneous, reliable and functional products are a necessity for the quality standards required by customers, they have another advantage. High quality goods that exactly meet the specifications reduce production costs. You save raw material and energy by measuring and controlling the web thickness of the material.
Our thickness measurement solutions guarantee our customers high quality goods while increasing the efficiency of the production process. The traversing quality measuring system Qualiscan QMS records the desired parameters and provides real-time feedback on the values. Thus, defects can be corrected immediately. Depending on the application and condition of the product, we provide the appropriate sensors.
Measurement of basis weight (mass per unit area) / thickness /density
Transmission of beta rays
The weight monitoring and control system measures the weight continuously, without contact, destruction-free and on moving product. The measurement is based on the…
