High-speed non-contact coating measurement techniques that accurately measure the absolute thickness or coat weight of applied coatings in-process are critical to improving overall product quality and streamlining coating process efficiency. The presented new coating and film thickness measurement methods are a cost-effective means to generate continuous, real-time coating process data for wet or dry coatings or multiple film layers immediately following application. This instant, actionable data results in better plant throughput, with no need to stop coating and laminating lines for off-line testing, traceable quality certifications for each production run and reduced waste streams due to optimized coating utilization.
