Plastics production and processing

Temperature monitoring of thin plastic films

With blown film extrusion, non-contact temperature measurement is a difficult measurement task. Ambient radiation also penetrates thin films and distorts the intrinsic radiation of the films. The infrared ...

Colour measurement of extruded parts

In order to avoid defective production and to conserve resources during the extrusion of plastic products, it is crucial to recognise colour deviations not just at the end of the process chain but already ...

Inline colour measurement of plastic injection-moulded parts

In plastic injection moulding, the exact colour shade of the products is important, as the colour changes during cooling. To date, it has only been possible to measure random samples of cooled pieces. ...

Surface inspection of adhesive film

In industry, the need for adhesive film is increasing. When producing the film, depressions and folds often occur, rendering the film unusable. Therefore, the customers’ requirements for an impeccable ...

Non-contact film thickness measurement

In film production inline thickness measurement guarantees constant product quality. Micro-Epsilon's KS5 combination sensor measures the thickness of films in a non-contact and thus wear free process.

Thickness measurement using displacement sensors

Thickness measurement using displacement sensors is a wide application area. Basically there are distinctions between non-destructive/destructive, non-contact/with contact and one-side/two-sided thickness ...

Blown film thickness

The thickness of blown films is an important aspect in terms of constant quality in blown film production. Partially strong thickness tolerances can occur for the production in doing so. The blown film ...
