Aluminum Thickness and Coating Weight Measurement Applications

Optimize your aluminum production process

We offer a complete line of non-contact aluminum thickness gauges for hot- and cold rolling mills that provide precise, real-time measurements that meet the tightest specifications of any application while maximizing raw material use. Whether you´re producing aluminum from primary or secondary sources, and your end-product is several-inch thick plates or foils less than one thousandth of an inch, you can rely on us for accurate aluminum thickness or coating weight measurement and the highest quality finished products.

Aluminum thickness and coating weight measurement applications

Thermo Scientific non-contact thickness gauges provide reliable, repeatable process control data to ensure product uniformity, and increase output. Get accurate, non-contact thickness measurement of aluminum and aluminum alloys with gauges specially designed for aluminum cold strip and foil mills.

Thermo Scientific aluminum coating weight gauges provide fast, accurate, non-contact coating weight measurement of various coatings applied to flat sheet products, helping to ensure coating uniformity, product quality and raw materials savings.

This app illustrates the application of Thermo Fisher Scientific solutions across the Integrated Steel plant workflow, from raw material handling to coke plant, sinter plant, blast furnace, hot rolling, cold rolling, coil coating, and lab equipment. Find out how you can leverage these solutions to optimize your steel plant operations.
