The average film thickness is easy to measure, just calculate using the weight, density, and cross sectional area of a piece of film. But often times, the buyer has a very specific thickness in mind when purchasing plastic film or the buyer need to know the film variability, so the producers need to use calipers for measuring plastic film.

Measuring the thickness of plastic film falls under a very specific industry, and very few have both the knowledge and experience and top-of-the-line products to meet the demands of manufacturers. At SolveTech, Inc., we strive to be the leader in this important industry, and we work hard to make sure that our clients are satisfied.

Types of Calipers for Measuring Plastic Film

First, let’s discuss the fact that calipers for measuring plastic film are divided into two categories: contact gauging and non-contact gauging. A contact gauge could be as simple as a micrometer, but often, it is hard to get a precise reading for thin films, though it is a easy to use and cheap option. The ASTM Standard D6988 is one of the types of calipers for measuring plastic film.

Now that we’ve briefly talked about the contact gauge, let’s take a look at the non-contact gauge. For most plastic films and especially very thin ones, the non-contact gauge is the best caliper for measuring plastic film. SolveTech, Inc. uses the PR2000 Precision Profiler and most measuring systems are set up as profilers.
