Thickness Gauging ApplicationsSolveTech offers thickness gauges for many types of non-conductive materials such as film and sheet extrusion applications.  SolveTech’s main focus is in the plastic film industry because of how thin plastic film is and the demanding requirements requiring the best tools.  New ASTM Standard D8136 for measuring the thickness of plastic film is based on SolveTech’s technology.   All of our applications are for measuring the thickness or weight per unit area of a non-conductive material. Select one from the list below to find out more.

Thickness Gauging


SolveTech’s capacitance-based technology has a unique combination of high precision and easy of use.  It has no X-ray or or nuclear radiation and the majority of the plastic film producers and polymer producers in the USA use SolveTech’s technology.  It is not a fit for conductive applications such as metals or materials with high moisture content.
