Laser Thickness Gauge
DML 6000 precise measurement of material thickness using laser technology
Raw material usage, rejects, and waste can be reduced while providing verifiable quality control documentation to the customer.
Determine exact thickness dimensions inline for immediate adjustments to production. The DML Laser Thickness Gauge non-contact measurement system is suitable for measurement of hard and soft surface and solid sheet products.
Fluctuations in panel thickness and deviations from nominal values reduce quality. The GreCon Laser Thickness Gauge DML provides accurate information for immediate adjustments to the production process to ensure a high quality standard panel. All measured data can be transferred to an automatic process control or press control systems. Thus, time periods required for product changes or production start-ups can be reduced and rejected material minimized.
Laser Thickness Gauge Technology
Measurements with laser technology are non-contact, thus making the evaluation of soft and moist materials possible. Measured values can be taken at the very edge of the material, at stationary points or traversing across the whole width of the material. Traverse measurement allows measurement of a maximum amount of material and clearly shows any deformation of the material. An automatic calibration system ensures consistent measuring accuracy for all measuring methods.
GreCon checks the accuracy and repeating accuracy of a DML 6000 during the internal system check after the system is built. The measurement capability of the system is a calculation of statistical quality parameters based on the measured results. The operator can repeat this procedure thus providing reproducible system checks.
High availability, operational reliability and, above all, consistent measuring quality are ensured by the calibration with integrated self-diagnosis system and the construction of the system. This leads to high confidence in the system and acceptance by the operator. The MSA ensures that the displayed information constitutes a reliable basis for the monitoring and optimization of the production process.
