Gauging For Narrow Web Applications

Customizable Thickness Gauging Systems for Narrow Web Applications


SolveTech’s has been helping producers and converters measure narrow film and nonwoven webs for over 36 years.  We utilize our proprietary thickness gauging technology to measure narrow webs from 1″ wide up to 60″ wide.    We take a different approach than most gauging suppliers.   We don’t scan the web, but we instead monitor the thickness of the entire web continuously.  It is an added bonus that the technology does not contain any nuclear or x-ray hazards while measuring with the same or better precision in non-conductive applications.

SolveTech’s proprietary capacitance based technology allows us to provide producers and converters with unique tools to help them understand the uniformity and behavior of their plastic film extrusion processes.  Below are several key areas where SolveTech helps plastic film researchers:

Products for the Lab

ASTM D6988

The PR2000 Precision Profiler

Profile a strip of film to see the uniformity of the material in the cross web or down web direction.  This unit delivers the highest level of accuracy and repeatability on the market.  You can see how your extrusion is performing in great detail to see the affect of small incremental improvements.  Great for blown film and cast film lines.

Non Contact Micrometer

The SC1000 SpotChecker

The SC1000 is great for inspecting a sheet of material.  Simply place the material under the gauge head and get a reading of thickness or basis weight.  This the preferred method for materials that may have adhesive or that are very delicate.

The MultiChannel Array Gauge

The MultiChannel Array Gauge measures research cast film lines like nothing else on the market.  Great for film webs less than 60 inches wide, and it provides a complete 3D map of your film thickness.   It helps researchers get the die set up quickly which is very helpful for small batch runs.
