ShadowMaster Direct Thickness Gauge

Many interacting variables in the manufacturing process make accurate thickness measurement a challenge. The Thermo Scientific™ ShadowMaster Direct Thickness Gauge provides accurate, non-contact online thickness measurement of a moving web. The ShadowMaster guage measures of a variety of materials up to 6500 microns (260 mils), for greater process control, improved quality and increased productivity without calibration or regulatory approval. The ShadowMaster measurement package comprises optical, inductive and temperature sensors to measure material with a variety of surface finishes.
