Why You Need Our Thickness Measurement Device

Thickness measurement devices are becoming an industry standard as one of the most accurate and effective products of the 21st century for manufacturing plants and other industrial uses. Our thickness measuring gauge system is one of the more premium devices on the market today, with a host of features that help improve functionality and make measuring thickness easier than ever before.

In a compact design and with a few additional accessories you can add, the Microtrak 3 is a great choice for plenty of facilities. Features like our programmable I/O and the ability to set tolerance and process limits give you more customization and flexibility than ever before. Additionally, our device:

  • Provides a wide measurement range.
  • Is portable and allows for quick measurements in a short period.
  • Is versatile enough to measure various metal coatings and cement sheets.

Non-Contact Thickness Measurement

The Microtrak 3 Thickness Gauge System is the perfect combination of our proven non-contact laser triangulation sensors with a modular controller. For it to be beneficial enough for metal, cement, and fiberboard production, it needs to have parts that work in design with each other to make operations easier than ever before. With our non-contact technology, you can now do so.

The controller discussed above simplifies thickness applications through high-speed internal sampling and digital thickness computation, reducing errors often encountered with traditional analog summing methods. The controller can detect out-of-range thickness conditions within 0.00025 seconds and provide an indication via a digital output pin.

By design, our laser sensors are perfect for non-contact thickness measurement, ensuring that measured objects won’t suffer from distortions or damage. Our thickness measuring gauge system is also great for high-speed production lines as sensors don’t need to be directly in contact with the products.

Laser Sensor for Thickness Measurement

There is a host of factors to consider when measuring thickness, including the type of measurement and material in question. This makes having a thickness measurement tool of the utmost importance.

At MTI Instruments, our laser sensor for thickness measurement contains two factors that help detect thickness — a solid state laser light and a CM OS detector. As the laser light reflects on the object being measured, a portion of the light is redirected onto the CM OS detector. The detector sends a signal using the laser’s proportional movement, determining the target’s distance.
