ICE Europe success for Erhardt+Leimer live demonstration of ELTIM solution for surface thickness and basis weight measurement1 April 2013
In the run-up to ICE Europe, Erhardt+Leimer had invited visitors of the exhibition to bring along a material sample of their choice to the E+L stand and witness the staff measure the sample’s thickness in a live demonstration. Many visitors did so, and were impressed by the ELTIM system’s accuracy and by the fact that it is not necessary to calibrate it prior to the measurement.
ELTIM is a radiation-free solution based on ultrasonic technology for monitoring of material thickness, weight and other relevant properties of a product during different production processes.
It allows a precise measurement of the individual layer thickness with an accuracy of 0.5% to 0.2% – even in combination with other substrates.
Precise recipe specification or repeated calibration will lead to even better values.
ELTIM has a large measuring gap, is insensitive against fluctuations in the height of the web and doesn’t affect the properties of the material.
In addition, the measurement is independent from the colour and the material.
The next chance to see an ELTIM live demonstration will be at ICE USA, 9-11 April 2013, and at Converflex in Milan, 7-11 May.
