Film Thickness

Let the Experts in Gauging Help You Improve Product Quality, Process Control and Cost Control

Film thickness is a critical property of packaging materials and other products as it has a direct effect on permeability, tensile strength, impact resistance and other characteristics. From a financial standpoint, it is an efficient way to reduce production costs by controlling material thickness to within a specified range. For example, many types of extruded files such as blown film have become thinner and thinner.

For high-value products, every manufacturer needs a reliable system in place that will help them accurately measure film thickness at every stage of production.
