Tools for Plastic Film Research and Development


SolveTech’s has been helping researchers develop their plastic film processes for over 36 years.  We utilize our proprietary thickness gauging technology in innovative ways to help researchers visualize their extrusion process with incredible detail and precision.  Since researchers are often in close and frequent proximity to the equipment, it is an added bonus that the technology does not contain any nuclear or x-ray hazards.

SolveTech’s proprietary capacitance based technology allows us to provide researchers 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.

Products For The Production Line

Measure Plastic Film Thickness

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.

Machine direction thickness gauge

Machine Direction Gauging Systems

SolveTech has innovative tools to help with machine direction analysis.  Improving machine direction uniformity helps improve transverse direction uniformity and this can help you make very flat film.
