On Line Thickness Gauge

Custom, Non-Contact Thickness Gauging Systems


The FX2100 Gauging System has a single measurement zone, and can measure nonconductive materials like plastic film, nonwovens and coatings on these materials.  The size of this zone is customizable and can be designed to match your application.  The device can measure the thickness or basis weight of the material.

SolveTech’s FX2100 Gauging System Applications Include:

    • Machine Direction Gauging
    • Narrow Web Monitoring
    • Control-based on edge reading
    • Monitoring a Single Area


SolveTech’s FX2100 Gauging System Offers the Follow Features:

    • Accurate to 0.1% to 1% of material thickness (typically 0.01 Mils/0.25 microns or better)
    • High Speed (0.01 Sec) Readings
    • NIST Traceable Calibration
    • Highly Stable
    • Industrially Durable.

The Gauge That Started It All


On Line Thickness GaugeThe FX2100 was the first gauge developed by SolveTech over 30 years ago for a plastic film application.  It was our original product that helped develop our technology.


Heads Galore


On Line Thickness Gauge

Only SolveTech can provide you with a wide range of customized head geometries. All heads are C-Frame construction. Design variables include:

    • Throat depth – up to 24 inches
    • Gap – up to 1 inch (0.2″ typical)
    • Footprint size and shape – from 1/8″ square. UP to 4″ x 5″ (1″ x 2″ typical)

System Overview

    • Measurement Head: Non-contact and non-nuclear
    • Gauge Control Unit: Provides power and signal conditioning for measurement head with large, 1″ digital readout. Alarm controls and calibration set-up.
    • Head Positioning System (optional): A linear slide and associated controls. Automatically positions the Measurement Head for measurement or moves it off line for start-up operations. Automatically re-zeroes the gauge head at a programmed time interval. This feature is especially important for high-accuracy applications.
    • Software Package (optional): Bring the enormous value of your PC in to the picture with our Windows-based software package to provide you with Strip Charts, Trend Charts, Statistics, Roll Reports, Recipe and Calibration Management, and more.

Plastic Film Thickness Gauge

FX2100 Applications


  • Research and Development for Plastic Film – Loved by researchers because they are able to get an extraordinary amount of data about their process quickly.  High speed data allows for detailed analysis.
  • Narrow Web Cast Film and Nonwoven Lines –  Measures webs less than 1″ wide, or a spot on a much larger web. Since the technology does not scan, and it does not have trouble measuring near the edges of materials, the technology works very well on narrow applications.
  • Plastic Film Pilot Lines
  • Medical Film Lines – The medical industry has demanding requirements, and the continuous coverage insures every area of the film is inspected and monitored.
  • Measuring Coatings on Film
  • Nonwovens and Coated Nonwovens
  • Plastic Sheet Lines with Sheet Under 50 mils Thick
