Improved Efficiency

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.

Reduced Lacquer Waste

Instant feedback on the effect of adjustments gives operators the confidence to optimize the coater setup to achieve the minimum film weight without risking customer complaint. Yet wasteful over-application will be eliminated, saving on expensive coating costs.

Better Product Quality

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.

Less Scrap

All measurements are taken without touching the sheet, further reducing scrap as sheets are saved from handling damage.
