IG710e Web Industry Gauge

The IG710e Gauge makes fixed-point, non-contacting, on-line measurements of key components such as:

  • Moisture content
  • Coatweight of water-based coatings (wet end)
  • Coatweight of organic coatings (dry end)

on a wide variety of substrates such as paper, board, plastics, textiles and nonwovens, helping the process manager to optimize production output by using these real-time measurements to control the process, monitor product quality and to warn operators if the process is moving out of specification, thereby increasing yield and improving and maintaining product quality. The efficiency improvements can result in substantial cost reductions, with rapid return on investment.

The IG710e works on the principle that constituents such as water or organic components discretely absorb certain wavelengths of infrared light. By emitting light at these wavelengths onto the product and then capturing and measuring the reflected unabsorbed light on a light-sensitive detector, the IG710e computes the level of the constituent content within the product.

Using highspeed signal processing, the patented 710e “light engine” delivers the highest resolution on-line NIR measurements available today and is unaffected by changes in process conditions such as product height variation (web flutter), product temperature variation, ambient lighting and relative humidity changes.

Place in the Process

The IG710e is suspended over the moving web at a key point in the process: just after the coating machine, for example, or after a drying oven, where the product can be measured to give meaningful feedback for process and quality control.

The IG710e can be incorporated conveniently into closed-loop control systems, using its digital or analog connectivity options, while data can be displayed locally for operators using the 710e Operator Workstation or HMI.

The IG710e is typcially used in conjunction with one or more 710e Peripheral Devices to facilitate data display, networking and process connectivity. Gauges and devices are Ethernet enabled and connect to each other via standard Cat5E cable and all run on 24V DC power.

Available devices include:

The IG710e is available with a wide range of options and accessories including:
