Film Thickness Measurement

For more than 40 years MoistTech has been working with industry to measure moisture and film thickness and temperature in the manufacturing environment. With the help of industry partners, we recently developed and released a new product, the IR-3000 that is revolutionary in the industry. It is ideally suited to measure moisture levels, coating and film thicknesses, and temperature in the factory.

Manufacturers have been very successful in reducing out-of-spec film thickness by installing the IR-3000 Near Infrared (NIR) sensor. It provides a continuous, accurate measurement of film thickness. The unit is mounted above the assembly line and sends readings to a computer that can send an alarm for out of range readings, or make pre-programmed adjustments to the line. We understand that small differences in the film thickness make a lot of difference in whether the product lies within specification or not.

Benefits of Film Thickness Measurement and Control

  • Improved product quality and consistency
  • 100% product inspection
  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced start-up times
  • Less waste
  • Lower energy costs
  • Fewer line stoppages

Trust in Our Experience

MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements in the film thickness measurement process. We are known for our accuracy, dependability and durability in the industry. We continue to gather data from the field to help us ensure that our instrumentation within the harshest industrial environment.

Get the Most Accurate Readings Possible

Our sensor calibrations, algorithms, measurement wavelengths and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory and require no maintenance. With the product loss software capability it becomes insensitive to production environment effects such as small gaps, inert material, foreign objects, and the belt or screw conveyors themselves are removed from the measurement calculation, providing the most accurate readings possible.
