ONLINE WET FILM WEIGHT/
WET COATING THICKNESS GAUGE
NON-CONTACT MEASUREMENT OF WET FILM WEIGHT (WET COATINGS THICKNESS) ON LACQUERED PLATE RIGHT AT THE COATER
The ability to accurately measure the wet film weight / wet coatings thickness on metal sheets as they come off the coater significantly shortens the ‘make ready’ process and also allows easy optimization of coatings thickness. Better coatings control promotes rapid payback through improved efficiency, reduced lacquer consumption and better product quality.
Instant feedback from the SC8800 Online Wet Film Weight Gauge allows operators to achieve the minimum film weight / coatings thickness without risking customer complaint, yet wasteful over-application is eliminated. Alarm outputs allow immediate correction, saving downtime and spoilage while maintaining product quality.
“Supplying product that is resistant to aggressive contents inside the can is very important for our reputation. Since installing the Sencon Wet Film Weight Gauge we have been able to guarantee the quality of the sheets to our end customers because the SC8800 ensures that the film weight is very stable”.
“Significant savings in coatings usage and setup time have been made with the Sencon Wet Film Weight Gauge. The system is easy for operators and gives them confidence they are doing the right thing.“
“Instead of set up taking about an hour, we can start production immediately using the Sencon system.”
✅ Easy to install
✅ Initial calibration in less than 30 seconds
✅ Saves time with quicker set-up /make ready times
✅ Rapid payback (typical 5 – 10 months)
✅ Improved efficiency
✅ Reduced lacquer waste / less scrap
✅ Better product quality
✅ Customer configurable limits
Logic output is available for missing lacquer detection.
A Batch Summary Data Utility (BSDU) option displays the average film weight with standard deviation for the batch. This data can also be sent via an RS232 port on the HMI. An analog output suitable for a chart recorder is also available.
By removing the need to pass sheets through the oven before measuring film weight, make ready times can be significantly reduced. More time will, therefore, be available for production, so improving line and plant profitability.
Reduce Lacquer Waste
Alarm outputs from the system will provide immediate warning of film weight problems. Immediate correction can then be made, saving downtime and spoilage while maintaining product quality.
All measurements are taken without touching the sheet, further reducing scrap as sheets are saved from handling damage.
✅ Improves line and plant profitability. 3%-6% typical coatings savings (higher savings also reported up to 10%)
✅ Works with gold, white and clear lacquers.
