A customer approached Lumetrics with a desire to better understand the thickness profile during the molding process of manufacturing a plastic bottle. Due to cycling mechanical machinery within a 24-inch window around the pre-form, a standard probe (with standoff maximum of 2 inches) could not be used while the machine was running.
There are many types of thickness measurement- one of those being ultrasonic thickness measurement. Ultrasonic thickness measurement has many benefits, but falls short in a few critical areas where optical thickness measurement excels. Here are the details:
