Systems provide data integration and connectivity down to the gauge level. 

NDC Technologies is debuting several new and innovative measurement systems at NPE2018. The systems are said to be ready for Industry 4.0 with data integration and connectivity down to the gauge level. 

NDC is showcasing its latest FilmPro infrared gauge for the film, sheet and coating industries. This gauge uses advanced optical techniques to measure a wide range of film and sheet properties with high precision. NDC’s modular FilmPro gauge can measure the thickness of clear, voided, pigmented, cavitated, porous, translucent colored and even black-tinted films. The measurement capability of FilmPro also extends to single- or multi-layer products including thin, biaxially-orientated films, cast films and CPE stretch films. It can simultaneously measure the individual thicknesses of up to six different layers in co-extruded films.

The FilmPro gauge is running on NDC's Mini-Trak O-Frame Scanner and Pro.Net TDi Web Gauging System platform, which includes NDC’s latest iView Pro Operator Work Station (OWS).

NDC’s new Low Energy X-Ray Sensor is ideally suited for thickness and basis weight measurements of light weight extruded film and sheet products and offers excellent narrow streak resolution. A highly stable, precisely tuned power supply runs at or below 5keV providing high signal-to-noise characteristics and optimum measurement performance.

NDC's new Web Surface Inspection Systems (engineered by R.A.M.) provide 100 percent product coverage, enabling manufacturers to achieve zero defects. Systems include powerful capabilities to instantly detect, classify, document and record all optical defects across a broad scope of web materials.
