SolveTech’s top of the line gauging systems beats out the competition with the best tech in the industry

plastic film thicknessIf you work in the plastics industry, then you know how important quality control is to the wellbeing of your company: blown film, for example, has become thinner and thinner, so you need gauges that will reliably measure your product after the lay-flat. Or, specialty materials may be your strong suit, in which case you need high-precision gauges that will give you quick precise feedback in real-time.

Regardless, one simple truth of the plastics industry is that every manufacturer needs a reliable system in place that will help them measure plastic film thickness at every stage of production.

The Good: Plastic Film Thickness Gauging, Starting in the Mid-Atlantic and Becoming Global

Manufacturers across North America have come to SolveTech Inc. over and over again throughout the years for our gauging solutions, and for good reason! We’ve changed the way manufacturers measure plastic film thickness for good, with gauging systems that meet your individual needs as a plastics producer. We have now expanded our gauging technology into Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Since our entrance into the world of plastics production in 1986, we’re confident we’ve changed the world of measuring film thickness, and for the better. With proprietary non-contact capacitance based gauging technology inherent in all of our units, our top of the line tools have become unbeatable alternatives to the standard gauges found in most film production systems. But don’t take our word for it…

The Bad: Overcoming Standard Gauges

In embodying the utmost in innovation, we’ve made it our goal to provide better alternatives to many standard gauges on the market. Standard gauges do the job they need to do, but at high labor and time costs for a manufacturer. SolveTech’s gauges go the extra mile for you, and for your customers.

We turn our spotlight towards two particular units that have best embodied our dedication to quality and reliability: the BF200 Blown Film Gauging System, and the PR2000 Precision Profiler.

The BF200 was designed to provide gauging to lines without gauging in blown film production systems, bringing higher precision and high-speed thickness measurements at a fraction of the maintenance and waste costs. The BF200 measures plastic film thickness after the lay-flat, and is the most precise instrument in its category currently on the market.

The Precision Profiler, an off-line laboratory tool, was developed to provide highly accurate quality control data for a material sample off the production line. The PR2000 is ideal for thickness inspection, providing readings every 0.125” to produce a complete profile for your product.

The Ugly: Going At It Alone in the Gauging World

We know what it’s like to be a pioneer in the world of gauging, so take it from us: it’s ugly going at it alone. We’ve just scratched the surface of what we offer here at SolveTech, and we hope you’ll take us with you on your journey.
