All-in-one system for precise inline thickness measurements
Micro-Epsilon: The thicknessGAUGE system measures the thickness of strip and plate materials reliably and with the highest precision. Depending on the measurement task, different variants with different sensor technologies are available. In addition, a linear unit with electromechanical drive, an automatic calibration unit and a multi-touch capable panel IPC are included in the scope of supply. Therefore, the system is a unique, flexible and complete solution for precise thickness measurements.
The thicknessGAUGE system is available with laser triangulation sensors, laser profile scanners or confocal chromatic sensors, which demonstrate their advantages depending on the type of material and accuracy requirements. It measures strips and plates on a non-contact basis and with the highest precision. The system offers maximum application versatility as it provides the suitable measuring principle depending on the requirements, and measures thicknesses from 2 mm to 25 mm.
The unique 3-in-1 combination consists of a linear unit with electromechanical drive that enables measurements in fixed track mode or traversing mode. Furthermore, the thickness measuring system is equipped with an automatic calibration unit that compensates for thermal influences. A multi-touch panel PC, which is equipped with the full range of features of the thicknessCONTROL software package, is integrated too.
The thicknessGAUGE is equipped with an extremely comprehensive software package which is outstanding for this device class. It includes powerful signal processing for precise and stable measurement values, an article database and an SPC package. Furthermore, it offers fully automatic documentation of the measuring equipment capability, as well as a flexible interface for connection to the production line, which communicates via Ethernet, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET or EtherCAT.
