Product category: Thickness gauges
LayerGauge instruments are thickness gauges for multilayer structures, capable of measuring layers individually and simultaneously. They see inside a test sample and detect different material layer thicknesses down to 2 µm.
LayerGauges are widely used by food and medical packaging manufacturers, whose products have multilayer structures like in co-extruded barrier films or in coated liquid paper boards.
This unique technology is available in three different instrument models:
LayerGauge16 has been specially developed for laboratory use. It’s good value for reduced cost with no extra functions. Samples are handled by operator and straightforward software offers intuitive control and reporting. LayerGauge22 includes motorized sample handling and automatic measuring functions. The sample handling has been optimized for coated papers and cardboards like ones used in liquid packages. Software provides wide range of options for instrument control and reporting. LayerGauge32 is especially suitable for automatic QC of plastic films. It has fully programmable sample handling combined with rich reporting and data handling functions. This is the one instrument barrier film co-extruder needs either in a lab or at a factory.

Davinor TOM11 is a modern opacity and transmission meter optimized for thin materials like plastic films, sheets and papers. This instrument is ideal for checking the clarity or color density properties and for ensuring consistent quality of production.
TOM11 can be used as a simple standalone instrument close to a production line. Or it can be taken into a lab and connected to a PC for data capture, saving and visualization. Either way it will give accurate results quickly and easily.
Simplicity of use is a great benefit of this system; users don’t even have to touch the instrument but instead can use both hands to insert and to move a sample.
TOM11 KEY FEATURES
Measures light attenuation due to a material under test. Results are reported as relative transmittance or as opacity units (selectable) with resolution of 0.1%. Designed especially for thin materials like plastic films or papers. Can be used as standalone unit or as connected to a Windows PC by USB cable. Integrated LCD display for standalone operation, showing current value and average. Easy to use Windows software for data capture and visualization included in the package.
Davinor offers free suitability study to ensure performance of products with customer’s materials and to help in selecting the correct model for each case.

We inform you after the package arrives and send test results soon after, typically within few days.
All customer materials and related information are handled in confidentiality. If you wish to have materials back, please include a note with the return address. Otherwise they will be destroyed after a few weeks from final results.
Not much material is needed. Equivalent to one magazine page is normally enough. If you want us to measure longer thickness profiles include more sample material and let us know your preference.
To help us respond quickly please fill out the Sample Specification Form and include it in to your package.
In Davinor, we are highly committed to increase our customers profits by offering the most sophisticated testing and control tools available. Besides of our current state of art equipment LayerGauge for measuring individual layer thicknesses of multilayer films and transmittance / opacity meter TOM11, we continuously put a strong effort in the development of new testing and measuring equipment designed for the needs of development, manufacturers and users of flexible packaging materials and processes.
In addition to this, we offer our services in the maintenance and calibration of the equipment, as well as supply spare parts to those 100+ customers worldwide who already have our testing and measuring equipment installed.
Davinor is owner-managed company. The staff at Davinor consist persons who have extensive experience in the product development and marketing knowledge of these products. We are able to offer you not only our well-known products, but also our expertise in testing and measuring issues relating to the development, manufacturing and use of flexible packing.
We will be happy to provide additional information concerning our products and services. The equipment is also constantly on display and available for trial measurements at our showrooms in Helsinki, Finland
