Maximize Raw Materials

Get more from less.

Extreme precision means significant savings over time. For example, in tire production, a typical plant might allow as much as a 0.025 reduction in gauge, resulting in over $1.2 million in annual savings.

Reduce Waste

Waste not, want not.

Throwing away materials means throwing away money. Defects deplete resources such as raw material, labor, energy, and time with no value to customers. Identify defects in real time to correct issues sooner and minimize waste.

Scanning Frames

The right fit for your equipment.

I-Frame: The compact I-Frame design is used in applications that only require a single-sided gauging sensor, such as multi-layer thickness, moisture percentage, and coating thickness. To ensure proper alignment, the rails can be cut by a CNC machine.

O-Frame: The O-Frame is used in applications requiring a dual-sided gauging sensor technology, such as beta transmission and x-ray transmission. The top and bottom rails of O-Frames are optically aligned to each other to ensure precision alignment.

C-Frame: The dual-sided sensor, C-shaped frame is used in applications where the web gauging scanner needs to be removed at times, such as an x-ray on hot rolling mills or when an ERS (external reference surface) is used in the system design.

Software & Reporting

The best software on the market today.

Get the most from your production lines with the best web gauging software available on the market today and the training you need to maximize your results. The software uses proven control algorithms to reduce startup waste, enable you to run closer to targets, and save on the amount of material used in the process.

How does it work? The software interprets data readings from the scanning frame and then presents operators easy-to-understand information from the current production batch. This allows for real-time identification of production issues as the line is running. Data is also stored for further reporting and analysis after production.

Intuitive reporting tools allow you to filter data down to the control zone. Scans can also be compared to identify products that do not meet your quality standards so you can pull them before they are sent out. Plus, real-time displays and reports can be customized, allowing you to focus on the data that matters most to your operations.
