IPlus! Measurement and Control System for Coating and Converting

Whether for an adhesive coating or a barrier coating on paper, foil or film, uniform product thickness and the ability to produce flat rolls is critical for coated product manufacturers. The Thermo Scientific™ IPlus! Measurement and Control System for Coating and Converting is a highly reliable, simple and cost-effective solution designed to measure the overall basis weight or total thickness of a coated substrate. Automatic process control options help to achieve optimal production quality and increase product uniformity and process efficiency, while saving raw materials, for a higher return on investment.

The IPlus! Measurement and Control System for Coating and Converting combines advanced sensor technology and powerful software in an intuitive, easy-to-use system to provide high performance and a low cost of ownership. The system incorporates advanced application packages for converted product manufacturing to increase the quality, consistency and performance characteristics of coated and converted products.

The suite of Thermo Scientific advanced machine-direction and cross-direction controls improve both quality and productivity, delivering consistent results and an impressive return on investment. The Machine Direction (MD) thickness control option is used to automatically maintain the extruded or coated product to thickness specifications, while the Automatic Profile Control (APC) option controls auto dies to achieve cross-direction uniformity of extrusion coated products. Two-zone CD (Cross Direction) control improves the cross width profile uniformity of blade or roll coated products.
