We offer a full portfolio of web gauging application-matched online measurement systems for flat sheet applications in the extruded plastic, packaging film, coating, rubber, lithium-ion battery, building and textile industries. From raw materials to end product, we understand web gauging applications.
Featured web gauging applications
We have a wide range of experience with all major makes of extrusion lines. Our comprehensive measurement family of Thermo Scientific caliper, infrared, nuclear, optical and x-ray sensors and advanced controls addresses the unique requirements of cast film and sheet, biax and blown film extrusion.
Typical coating applications include liquid packaging, adhesive coatings, polyethylene, foil, barrier materials, sealants and adhesive layers. Thermo Scientific measurement and control systems provide real-time data to keep your manufacturing process running smoothly and continuously, and ensure consistent production quality for smoother downstream processing.
Thermo Scientific technology allows you to meet the specialty requirements for nonwoven manufacturing, whether the process is spunbond, spunlace, airlaid, carded, meltblown or needlepunch. Our measurement and control systems measure the basis weight or thickness of nonwoven materials, ensuring efficient production of uniform, reliable, functional products.
Rubber calendering is a complex process that requires a modular measurement and control strategy that can be configured to almost any calender. Thermo Scientific measurement and control systems provide accurate, reliable measurement of the basis weight or thickness of the materials used in rubber tire manufacture including, gum, fabric and wire.
Building materials are often manufactured in challenging and hostile measurement environments. Thermo Scientific measurement and control systems provide repeatable, continuous performance in the manufacturing of insulation, roofing, float glass, abrasives and other building supplies.
From electronics to vehicles to marine vessels, lithium-ion battery technology is changing our lives. Thermo Scientific thickness measurement and control systems measure the thickness of separator film and anode and cathode coatings, helping to improve the safety, consistency and efficiency of lithium-ion batteries.
