- NIR TECHNOLOGY - based on the interferometer concept, avoid any certification needed for radioactive systems.
- INCREASED ACCURACY - Optyscan has a 1 mm measuring spot with accuracy down to 0.1 micron. Precision of the measurement is improved and increased versus either IR, X-ray or Beta-ray which have measuring spots between 5 and 20 mm.
- STABLE AND PRECISE - Thanks to the installation on the casting unit, Optyscan won’t suffered any vibration that will affect the measurement and the quality of the measurement is kept the same independently of the film movement.
- LIMITLESS PERFORMANCES - The system guarantees an absolute thickness gauging and doesn’t need any calibration once set up.
- COMPACT AND VERSATILE - Optyscan is backscatter so it doesn’t need any receiver; Due to that it’s installation directly on to the casting unit enable the length of the line to be reduced by about 2-3 meters saving space, frame structure and rolls.
- FAST START UP - Thanks to the unique installation on the chill roll Optyscan will guarantee a faster response in auto profile control due to its proximity to the die, especially during start-up where each meter of film extruded is important.
- EASY ACCESS FOR MAINTENANCE - Optyscan has been designed to guarantee easy access for maintenance operations.
- PROCESSES - Optyscan can be used on different process such as stretch film lines, non-woven lines, BOPP lines, coating lines, Blown film lines.
- SYNTROL CONTROL - Optyscan is equipped with Control cabinet along with PC touch screen, keyboard, mouse and printer.
- INDUSTRY 4.0 & IoT - Optyscan is equipped with PLC integrated with OPC-UA protocol for industry 4.0.
Optical sensor Gauging System
OPTYSCAN represents the latest technology on the market in film thickness gauging. Thanks to its compact design and the same film side sender / receiver reading allow the installationon the chill roll frame. The extrusion lines will benefit from these characteristics resulting compact and the gauging being very close to the die head will guarantee a fast feedback and control particular appreciated during the start-up process.
OPTYSCAN uses NIR (Near Infra-Red) technology. Its optical sensor is based on low coherence interferometry. The material is illuminated with a broadband near infrared light source; The optical head collects the reflection from upper and lower boundaries of the film and makes it possible to obtain the difference between the two measurements.
