NDC Infrared Engineering Ltd, a web-based calibration system manufacturer for extrusion industry, is releasing three novel thickness measurement systems, the re-modeled NIR sensor FG710S, the extended range TFG710S-ER film system and the OptiMike Shadow LED sensor, at the K’2010 exhibition.
The previously used NIR Sensor, calculates the actual thickness of pigmented and clear single or multilayered BOPP Films and now, the latest FG710S NIR Sensor has prolonged calibration abilities to monitor voided BOPP films and micro-porous battery separator films respectively, employing a lone sensor. The improved FG710S calibrates thickness, instead of mass, of the porous film producing flat rolls and films. The specific measurement algorithms and optics deployed in the single device can be exploited for all films such as the PS, PVC, EVOH, PA, Surlyn, PMMA PET, PP, PE, and many more and calculates a maximum of four varied product components concurrently. The improved FG710S is cost-effective and even without re-stabilization it offers source substitution, effective scanner tolerancing or sensor conditioning/ cooling for nucleonic-based systems apart from measuring all types of films.
The innovative TFG710S-ER has been fabricated for calibrating a broad range of films that are polyolefin- based, for the production of various ranges of thickness. This sensor utilizes a specific patented configuration that contributes to the web-oriented rapid calibration, precision and high-quality operation, even in two micron thick films. In contrast to the nucleonic substitutes, they are least influenced by barometric pressure, aerial dust, humidity or gap temperature. They need not be re-stabilized and can be integrated with ideal scanning systems.The devise is an excellent system that can be utilized to monitor calibrations below ten microns.
The OptiMike Shadow LED devise projected in the exhibition facilitates the one-sided thickness calibrations of foam, plastic sheet and rubber products and is not sensitive to surface features, porosity or color.
