NDC Infrared Engineering Ltd. has three new offerings for measuring sheet film: the revised FG710S NIR sensor, the TFG710S-ER (Extended Range) film gauge, and the OptiMike Shadow LED sensor.
The revised FG710S NIR sensor now has extended measurement capabilities to include voided BOPP films, as well as micro-porous battery separator film using a single sensor. Unlike beta or X-ray sensors, the FG710S measures thickness, not mass, of voided film, resulting in flat film and rolls. A single gauge can be used for all types of film, including PET, PP, PE, PS, PVC, EVOH, PA, Surlyn, and PMMA.
The new TFG710S-ER (Extended Range) film gauge has been engineered specifically for measuring a wide range of polyolefin- based films on lines where multiple thickness ranges are produced. The sensor uses a patented design, achieving a new level in on-line measurement speed, accuracy and performance, even on films less than two microns thick. The gauges require no re-standardization, and can be fitted to standard scanning systems.
The new OptiMike Shadow LED Sensor allows direct, single- sided thickness measurement of plastic sheet, foam and rubber products. Unlike laser triangulation gauges, it is insensitive to surface characteristics, color, or porosity.
