Gamma Backscatter Gauges

General Purpose Thickness and Basis Weight Measurements

Highly accurate, highly stable single-sided thickness or basis weight measurements with advanced integration technology for smart pairing with our value range of scanners.

  • Compact – weighs less than 3 pounds and effectively captures measurements from inaccessible process areas
  • Versatile  configurable for fixed-point measurements or web scanning; fixed-point gauges can be configured in the measure machine direction (MD) for consecutive coating applications or cross direction (CD) for calendering profile optimization
  • No Standardization – as gamma radiation is less composition sensitive, Gamma Backscatter gauges provide stable and accurate measurements without the need for standardization or recalibration
  • Fast ROI and Lowest Cost of Ownership – robust, cost-effective measurement solution that is reliable, accurate and easy to maintain
  • Preeminent Support – all systems are backed by NDC's dedicated worldwide customer service organization available 24-7 via myNDC cloud service
