Gauging Control

Wide range of gauging solutions for film, cast and flat sheet extrusion.

  • Gauging solutions according to end product
  • Capacitive, Inductive and NIR Near Infrared Technology
  • Precision inline measurement

PE & Non-Barrier Films

SkYmex– Capacitive Gauging System

  • Ideal applications: all blown film applications, excluding barrier products.
  • Mono and co-extrusion applications.
  • Capacitive technology (contact / non-contact options).
  • Three stage telescopic arm (patent).
  • Rotating system and encoder band 360° - know position at all times.
  • Encoder band = belt free motion = significantly less maintenance and better accuracy.
  • Ultrasonic distance sensor automates telescopic arm setup - ensures gauging consistency.
  • Available for bubble diameters from 100mm up to 9m.

Blown Film, Sheet, Foil, Rubber & PVC

CombYscan – Capacitive & Inductive Gauging System

  • Ideal applications for blown film: sticky films, agristretch film and barrier film. 
  • Ideal applications for flat dies: sheet, extrusion coating.
  • Mono and co-extrusion applications.
  • Excellent for both color and transparent products.
  • Inductive / capacitive technology. 
  • Ideal for barrier film and sensitive film. 
  • Measurement of total thickness - from 10 micron up to 4.5mm.
  • Layflat width from 500mm up to 3m.

Blown, Cast, Sheet, Non Woven & BOPP

OptYscan - NIR Near Infrared Gauging System

  • Ideal applications for blown film: barrier film, battery separator film.
  • Ideal applications for cast film: Stretch, barrier, CPP and battery separator film.
  • Ideal applications for Biax Extrusion: BOPP, BOPE and BOPET film.
  • NIR Near Infrared sensor - back scatter application.
  • Ideal to install on flat film or chill roll applications.
  • Absolute gauge - no need to change parameters or filters when changing type of film.
  • Measurement accuracy 0.1 micron.
  • Web width from 500mm - 10m.

RaYxscan - X- Ray Gauging System

  • Ideal applications for blown film: barrier film, battery separator film.
  • Ideal applications for cast film: Stretch, barrier, CPP and battery separator film.
  • Ideal applications for Biax Extrusion: BOPP, BOPE and BOPET film.
  • Ideal application for extrusion coating and lamination.
  • X-ray source. Source below ≤ 5Kva - therefore reducing safety risk and eliminating need for independent inspections.
  • Accurate measurement - down to 0.02 micron.
  • Easy installation and maintenance.
  • Web width from 500mm - 10m.



Foam Sheet & Calendering

ShadYscan - Laser Gauging System

  • Ideal applications: foam sheet & calendering.
  • Mono and co-extrusion applications.
  • Gauging by laser shadow - non-contact.
  • Measurement not affected by color, transparency or material composition - better accuracy. 
  • Easy access for periodic maintenance. 
  • Thickness up to 10 mm.
  • Width from 500mm to 3m.
