Selecting a Measurement Sensor

Thickness / Width

When selecting sensors to measure thickness or width, the first step is to choose a method. The target's material, color, and location will all play factors in which option is the best fit for your application. You can browse through the most common setups below, or request a free consultation with a local measurement expert.

A sensor is placed above and below a target to measure the thickness of anything in-between. This non-contact method can be used for measuring the thickness of any material and can be used in process or for offline inspection.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

CL-3000 series

Opposing 2D profilers can scan multiple points of thickness over a part. This allows stable thickness measurement even on rough surfaces.

Laser Profiler

LJ-X8000 series

With two thrubeam micrometers installed on either side of a film, we can get a width measurement and give film position, regardless of color or material.

High-speed optical micrometer

LS-9000 series

2D thrubeam sensors can measure the step height between a roller and a sheet to get a thickness measurement. Additionally, A second sensor can be added to get a width measurement.

High-speed 2D Optical Micrometer

TM-3000 series

Measure transparent films and coatings with a single displacement sensor. Confocal sensors give an accurate thickness measurement from one side of transparent targets.

Confocal Displacement Sensor

CL-3000 series

2D Profilers give width, height, and volume of sealant beads inline without touching a part.
