Blown film plants have many challenges when it comes to thickness gauging.  Off-line, speed is critical.  SolveTech can profile the entire bubble in 30 to 60 seconds and give you answers fast regarding your extrusion process.  The environments are often dusty, and SolveTech has designed these gauging systems to minimize the impact of contamination on the thickness reading.  You can achieve amazing levels of precision even on the production floor.

SolveTech has proprietary technology that offers simpler operation and higher performance.

Precision Profiler TM Laboratory Gauging System

Precisely Measure Blown Film Off Line in the Lab or on the Production Floor

Downgauging Plastic Film

SolveTech’s off-line laboratory gauging system is fast and easy to use while having amazing accuracy and precision.  It is designed to operate in harsh environments while giving a reliable answer every time. Simple calibration tools and software make this a “must have” for quality control for a blown film lab.  Many blown film plants operate their entire production floor off of one PR2000!

Check out our video below to see a blown film sample measured and analyzed by our software.  We can display the data with die bolt overlays on a polar plot.  This is a great visualization for your production team to help them adjust their bubble, or determine the location of thick and thin areas.

BF200 Gauging System

This non-contact, on-line system is designed to measure film thickness after the lay-flat on a blown film line. Economical and easy to use, yet it offers features that satisfy the most demanding user. It is affective in measuring thin or thick blown films, and it is much more cost effective than on-the-bubble gauging.  With over 120,000 hours between failures, it is a rugged while still accurate solution for a blown film plant.

It delivers the most accurate, stable and reliable capacitance thickness measurement on the market, so you don’t need to rely on gravimetric control to know your actual thickness.
