Complete solution for precise inline thickness measurements
The new thicknessGAUGE variants are complete systems for non-contact inline thickness measurements of plate and strip materials. Different variants based on various sensor technologies enable high application versatility. Depending on the surface, material or required performance class, either laser triangulation sensors, laser profile scanners or confocal chromatic sensors are used.
The system is designed for thickness measuring ranges from 2 mm to 25 mm and offers a unique 3-in-1 combination. Consisting of a linear unit with electromechanical drive, measurements in fixed track mode or traversing mode are possible. In addition, thicknessGAUGE is equipped with an automatic calibration unit to compensate for thermal influences. Furthermore, it consists of a multi-touch panel IPC which is equipped with the full range of features of the thicknessCONTROL software package.
The systems are equipped with an extremely comprehensive software package which is outstanding for this device class. It includes powerful signal processing for precise and stable measurement values, an article database and an SPC package. Furthermore, it offers fully automatic documentation of the measuring equipment capability as well as a flexible interface for connection to the production line which communicates either via Ethernet, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET or EtherCAT.
