The measurement of polyester film thickness is critical throughout the production and quality control process. SolveTech offers several thickness gauging products that are excellent tools for measuring the thickness of polyester film in the lab and on the production line. These thickness gauging systems can be used by a producer to help with production, or a person purchasing material that needs to do an inspection.

Without proper measurement, you risk manufacturing and selling polyester film with defects and inconsistencies in thickness. Since the finished polyester film thickness is typically small and has a tight tolerance, it is difficult to spot inconsistencies with the naked eye or without sophisticated tools.
Using a non-contact polyester film thickness gauge in pre-production set-up, during the lay flat or in your quality control lab, can help you ensure uniform thickness and superior finished products. Routinely checking film thickness can also help you determine if your equipment or materials needs to be adjusted or replaced.
Polyester film is cast or extruded into thin film sheets. There are several types of polyester film sheets including:
This sheets have several applications for a variety of industries and in a variety of products, including:
No matter what the application, the polyester film thickness must be uniform to ensure proper performance as well as to keep production costs low.
Profile a strip of polyester 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, typically down to +/-0.1% of the polyester thickness.
The SC1000 is great for inspecting a sheet of polyester or looking at the thickness of adhesives or coatings on polyester. Simply place the material under the gauge head and get a reading of thickness or basis weight.
The MultiChannel Array Gauge measures you polyester film web like nothing else on the market. It provides full continuous coverage for webs less than 60 inches wide and is typically precise to better than 0.01 mils/ 0.25 micron.
The MD2000 allows you do on line machine direction analysis of your polyester film web. Simply the best tool on the market for machine direction analysis due to its high precision, high speed, customized measurement footprint and special software features.
The FX2100 allows you to check a single spot on your polyester film web. Great for a reference and looking at coating and adhesives. Sizes and footprints are customizable.
