New SpecMetrix® Dry Film Thickness (DFT QA) Coating Measurement System Meets Coil Industry Need for Accurate, Non-Destructive Coating Measurement Data in Real-Time
The new SpecMetrix® Dry Film Thickness (DFT QA) Coating Measurement System provides immediate non-contact, non-destructive and non-radioactive absolute coating thickness measurement data down to sub-micron levels. This exclusive lab system streamlines coating QA processes by quickly measuring transparent and highly pigmented primers, back coats and thicker coatings with nanometric precision.
With dedicated clear/primer and top coat probes, this combination lab system is powered by Sensory’s proprietary EXR "ruggedized optical interference" (ROI) technology. Sensory’s game-changing technology can generate absolute thickness readings with nanometric precision for primers, back coats and thicker, highly pigmented top coats on any substrate. The new system’s DFT thickness measurement range for transparent coatings is from 0.7 to 350 microns and 0.7 to 75 microns for pigmented coil coatings. Having this extended measurement range for opaque coil coatings allows for accurate offline measurement of most coil top coats including polyester, SMP, Kynar/PVDF, textured, wrinkled, metallic and clear top coats. Designed to streamline coating QA processes, the SpecMetrix DFT QA system improves coating process and quality control in virtually any QA lab or R&D center. The integrated and intuitive SpecMetrix software reduces set-up times and accelerates QA testing, data collection and analysis. Thickness data is easily and efficiently exported to data acquisition, analysis and SPC systems.
All SpecMetrix systems ship with a verified Gage R&R result of <5%. The superior Gage R&R scores of SpecMetrix systems are setting a higher industry standard for DFT measurement system performance. The expanded capabilities of the new SpecMetrix DFT QA Coating Measurement System are helping coaters and coating suppliers lower costs, minimize process control issues, reduce claims and improve product coating quality.
