Manufacturing companies across a variety of industrial markets are now able to reduce their coating related costs, better assure their coating quality and reduce the production and QA man-hours spent in their coating and film weight QA processes. Coatings are applied to various industrial and medical products to achieve critical functional characteristics. Coatings can also be used to improve surface properties of the substrate such as appearance, adhesion, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and scratch resistance.
Unlike traditional and time-consuming contact measurement devices, SpecMetrix coating and film thickness measurement solutions are a more accurate non-contact means to measure surface finishes including anodize, spray coatings, varnishes, adhesives, hard coats, primers, films and a host of other clear and semi-transparent coatings. These non-contact and non-hazardous measurement tools automatically validate coating thickness and capture that data for SPC and subsequent quality documentation, helping to reduce subsequent customer claims. Industries currently benefitting from the use of SpecMetrix film and coating thickness currently include:
- Anodize and Product Finishing
- Consumer Electronics
- Glass Products
- Medical Devices
- Medical Films and Packaging
- Metal Packaging
- Solar Control Films
- Thin Films & Coatings
Please contact the Sensory applications engineering team for additional information on these innovative and powerful new time-saving systems for any of your coating and film thickness measurement needs.
For more precise measurements in your manufacturing process, SpecMetrix can provide your team with film weight, wet film thickness and coating thickness gauges to save costs and improve production profitability. Thin film thickness measurements can be made to the tightest tolerances with the SpecMetrix system.
