The AccuProbe from NDC Infrared Engineering is a slimmed-down, lower-priced version of the gamma-gauge used to measure the thickness of blown film at the bubble, or on the layflat area.
The flashlight-sized probe measures from only one side of the film. When it is mounted on the collapsing frame, it is possible to obtain a true profile of the thickness around the bubble, the company said.
NDC Infrared Engineering, based in Irwindale, Calif., is a unit of the Fairey Group.
