The new IMDvista LAYER: Measuring layer thickness of bottles and preforms with terahertz-technology

Bruegg, BE

At the manufacturing stage of bottles and preforms, a quintessential step to ensure consistent quality involves the precise measurement of each layer of plastic. Current techniques for measuring the thickness of mono-layer and multi-layer plastic bottles and preforms are often contact-based, destructive and time-consuming. Ranging from cutting the bottle and preform to alternative techniques that are limited in their ability to capture each layer in the structure, it is evident that a solution is needed to revolutionize current practices.
