The Wall Thickness Gauge uses a single non-contact chromatic sensor to measure the wall thickness of glass containers. A servo-controlled linear slide automatically keeps the chromatic sensor at optimal distance from the surface of round and non-round containers during the entire measurement sequence.
Once installed and calibrated, the Wall Thickness Gauge does not require any mechanical adjustment. When creating a job, the operator simply specifies the distance from the top or base of the container the different wall thickness measurements should be performed. Up to nine locations can be specified, each with different diameter and min/max limit values.
