Capacitive Gauging System for Blown Film Lines

SKYMEX is a contact thickness gauge for blown film lines. It provides a continuous thickness measurement around the bubble and is installed on a patented positioning device with an oscillating ring connected to an auto profile control.

Skymex is based on capacitive technology. Dielectric charecteristics of the film that is in contact with the sensor, produce a variation of the signal proportional to the film thickness.
