Lumetrics Inc. said it successfully has tested its DI 330 Opti/ Gauge film thickness measurement systems to make multilayer specialty film in full production.
The DI330 Opti/Gauge accurately tracked the thickness, instantly detecting increases and decreases in thickness under real time, the firm said.
The device uses advanced optical technology originally developed by Eastman Kodak Co. to monitor its polyester film for thickness uniformity. Lumetrics enhanced the technology to meet the requirements of specialty film.
The system has an accuracy of plus or minus 0.1 micrometers, according to the company.
Lumetrics is based in Rochester, N.Y.
