Marveloc 602 - CURTAIN for thick sheets

Hammer-IMS offers thickness measurement solutions for Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Acrylic glass/PMMA (Plexiglas), or Polycarbonate (PC) sheets. The Marveloc 602 systems of Hammer-IMS are:

-Contactless;
-Have accurate performance up to thicknesses of a few centimeters for both extruded or cast sheets;
-Clean: Meaning non-nuclear, non-radioactive;
-Featuring cutting edge M-ray technology based on millimeter waves;
-Multi-sensor approach enables high all-time coverage of the sheet enabling to reduce production margins on thicknesses;
-Enables a thickness set-value nearby typical -5% international tolerances on thicknesses;
-Applicable in high-temperature conditions close to extrusion die for quick feedback, reducing material waste;
-Maintaining performance for all colors;
-Tailored support for fillers (typically used for non-optical application of sheets);
-Easy-to-use state-of-the-art software environment;
-Available as turnkey installations through our CURTAIN technology.

Deutschsprachigen Video: Hammer-IMS Millimeterwellen für Dicke und Gewichtsmessung

Schauen Sie sich das deutschsprachigen Video (des belgischen FernsehsendersKanaal Z) über Millimeterwellen gebasierte neue Systeme für das Messen der Dicke und des Gewichts von nichtmetallischen Materialien auf laufenden Produktionsstraßen.

Die Unternehmen Hammer-IMS bietet eine leistungsstarke Alternative zu den gängigen nuklearen Messsystemen, deren Verwendung durch entsprechende gesetzliche Erlasse der Regierungsbehörden reduziert wird.

About us

Company details

Hammer-IMS is a high-tech company in the field of industrial sensing. It is a spin-off company of research laboratory ESAT - MICAS of KU Leuven University. The company is based in Hasselt, Belgium. Hammer-IMS supplies contactless measurement systems for measuring thickness, weight and anomalies of flat structures in production lines, based on the disruptive technology of Hammer-IMS's M-Rays. This technology combines millimeter waves (=high-frequency electromagnetic waves) with innovative algorithms to a powerful alternative for today’s nuclear and radioactive measuring equipment. The Hammer-IMS systems have been performing trial runs at international paper producers and manufacturers of plastic sheets and films, and are now further engineered to handle composites, textile coating, non-wovens, mineral wool and other materials.

Millimeter wave measurements are favorable in situations where conventional technologies such as optical technologies, nuclear or radioactive radiation, ultrasound waves, inductive or capacitive measurement systems fail, are undesirable or provide an unreliable output. The modular and robust Hammer-IMS systems offer up to micron level accuracy on industrial in-line production machines.

The innovative millimeter wave technology is suitable for a long list of non-metallic materials across a range of industries: paper & pulp, plastics, mineral wools, textile, composites, and glass. The Marveloc 602 family of measurement systems can optionally be combined with Hammer-IMS’s CURTAIN hardware, supporting a multi-sensor solution for fast profile measurement in cross-machine direction. This multi-sensor approach is a clear differentiator compared to conventional methods. The measuring technology is clean, non-nuclear and non-radioactive, and suitable for material thicknesses up to several centimeters. The Hammer-IMS systems measure both transparent and opaque materials in any color as well as rough and shiny surfaces. Moreover, millimeter waves are as affordable as conventional measuring technologies.
