Off-line measurement and sample characterization

SKYLAB is the system for measuring and characterizing offline blown film samples according to laboratory standards.

Samples, which would normally be brought to a laboratory and measured by hand, are inserted into the slot of the cabinet on the machine. The system automatically detects the sample insertion and starts the sample measurement procedure. The film is simultaneously measured using two sensors: a mechanical micrometer and a capacitive sensor. The micrometer measures the average thickness and standard deviation according to the standards for characterizing samples in the laboratory, the capacitive sensor creates a verified and calibrated profile on the results of the micrometer.
