Sharing process control on coating lines

SpecMetrix Systems has expanded its range of coating weight inspection systems to include two split-system options for coating lines that are adjacent and others for lines in tandem, which provide enhanced monitoring capability on products with reduced coating thicknesses.

The new split and tandem in-line systems include two full-control stations with the lines sharing one centrally-located processor and electronics cabinet positioned between coaters. The systems are capable of measuring wet or dry coated flat sheets, end stock or metal/film laminates at high speeds, while saving the data for both lines. All SpecMectrix equipment is shipped with a verified gauge variation measurement result of less than five per cent.
