How to achieve high accuracy inline measurement of metals, plastics, rubber & film

Written by: Micro Epsilon UK Ltd | Published:

Micro-Epsilon’s Systems Group has developed a range of innovative, robust, complete turnkey measurement systems that offer distinct technical advantages in terms of measurement accuracy, thermal stability and reliability. This is backed up by installation, servicing, maintenance, technical support with guaranteed response times, retrofitting and upgrade services.

Metals, plastics and rubber processing companies can now benefit from a comprehensive range of inline precision measurement and inspection systems from a single UK supplier. Micro-Epsilon’s Systems Group specialises in the development, manufacture and installation of a wide range of non-contact, inline measurement and inspection systems for process monitoring and quality control applications. These include specific measurement systems for metal, plastics and rubber, including thickness, length, speed and width measurement of strip, coil, film, sheet, tube and tyres.

Chris Jones, Managing Director at Micro-Epsilon UK comments: “We manufacture the sensor technology and all other critical parts including the electronics and software. The system mechanical design is also developed and assembled in-house, as this is critical to mechanical stability. All electrical hardware, including the PCs, is industrial-grade with solid-state memory. All these factors enable Micro-Epsilon to guarantee total system accuracy, reliability and to take full ownership of the complete system.”

“As well as offering our comprehensive range of inline, non-contact thickness and speed measurement systems for metals, we are providing a dedicated service to UK-based customers, including a 24/7 technical support hotline and a guaranteed on-site, rapid response service. We understand how critical it is for these companies to minimise production downtime and improve their product quality and so our engineers will be on call to assist the customer at all times. We can also provide customers with dial-in communications and remote diagnostics for measurement systems, which speed up our response times and enables our engineers to quickly rectify any issues that arise onsite,” adds Jones.

The measurement systems provide a variety of technical benefits including:

  • Automatic recalibration (C-frame and O-frame systems).
  • Turnkey systems that include sensors, software and mechanical frame (in C-frame or O-frame configurations).
  • Patented compensation frame available for all O-frame measurement systems. This ensures high precision measurements and a stable frame when temperatures fluctuate.
  • All O-frame and C-frame sensor technologies are non-contact, wear-free and do not use isotopes or X-rays.
