Adhesive layer measurement in lamination process

EASYCOATER is the new Syncro device for measuring the thickness of adhesive during the lamination process. The reflection measurement setup grants an easy and non-invasive mechanical installation. The non-contact InfraRed (IR) head can detect adhesive grammage in the range 0.2 – 20 g/m2.

Easycoater measures the grammage of the coating based on the absorption of the distinctive infrared wavelengths of both solventless and solvent-based adhesives; the presence of a metallic surface on the opposite side of the film (i.e. the roller) creates a reflection phenomenon that allows both a strengthened signal due to the double optical travel, and the typical reflection setup with only one head.
