OPTYMEX NON CONTACT gauging system based on NIR reflex technology for blown film. OPTYMEX provides a continuous measuring of material thickness. Installed on an oscillating ring it is able to refresh the profile every 2-3 minutes, uninfluenced by the haul off speed.
> The sensor can be used to measure total thickness of materials for which the component r2 has sufficient optical intensity to provide the interference signal, transparent or semi-transparent materials.
> Coloured material can also be measured under certain conditions.
> It is also possible to measure materials on metal substrates because the metal base is reflective. > Utilizing modular technology, ensures simple, practical operation by providing the operator with all the information required to operate the system clearly and intuitively using a touch screen HMI.
> OPTYCAL TECHNOLOGY.
> IDEAL FOR BARRIER FILM.
> NON CONTACT.
> NO AIR CUSHIONING.
> HIGH PRECISION.
Optical is backscatter so it doesn’t need any receiver. The optical head collects both r1 and r2 and makes it possible to obtain the difference between the two measurements. The refractive index is a characteristic that is well-known for a large number of plastic materials.
