Kapa controls thickness in films and sheets extrusion applications with narrow thickness tolerances – for high quality production where every batch needs to be perfect.
Applications Include: Extruded Mono and Multilayer Plastic Film and Sheet, Thermoforming Sheet (PP, PE, PET, PS, ABS, PVC etc) , Land Fill Liners etc…
Two thickness ranges are available:
Kapa thickness gauges are available in widths of 500 mm to 8 meter
Ultra-precise thickness measuring with an accuracy of ≤ 0,1 µm
Kapa I and II series are suitable for material thickness of up to 3 mm / 6 mm respectively
Kapa uses a non-contact, indirect measuring method with a dual sensor configuration and a measuring roller. This extremely robust sensor combination in one housing features capacitive and eddy current sensors.
First, the capacitance between sensor and measuring roller is measured. This is automatically corrected by the distance measurement of the eddy current sensor. From this, the thickness is calculated in comparison with a calibrated value.
