HazePro

Defining a New Standard in Haze Measurement

Haze is a critical quality parameter for plastic films, various plastic sheet products and other transparent materials. A film or sheet with a poor visible appearance can be problematic for manufacturers trying to maintain a specific quality standard. NDC’s new HazePro gauge solves this problem by measuring the haze of both narrow and wide films online with the highest accuracy and reliability. With HazePro, manufacturers can precisely adjust the film and sheet extrusion process to tightly maintain haze quality. Process adjustments can be automated for real-time control of haze. Film applications include optical, packaging, flexible packaging, agricultural, solar panel, coatings on glass (such as solar panels), anti-glare on computer screens and other uses. NDC’s haze measurement complies with ASTM standard D1003 for transparent materials.

HazePro will be demonstrated on NDC’s Mini-Trak O-Frame scanner and iView Pro.net process controller.

FilmPro

High Performance Basis Weight and Thickness measurements for Film, Sheet and Coatings

This smart gauge provides accurate, repeatable, high-resolution basis weight and thickness measurements for a wide range of film, sheet and coating applications.

  • Versatile Gauging – effectively measures thin film to thick sheets with multi-layer discrimination; clear, pigmented and tinted films; voided, micropourous and breathable films; organic- and water-based coatings
  • Measure Costly Barrier Materials – such as Nylon, EVOH or PVDC simultaneously with other polymers such as PE, PP or Ionomer
  • Proven Performance in Any Environment – unaffected by changes in process and ambient conditions such as lighting, temperature, humidity and other elements
  • Non-Nuclear Technology – does not require special licensing or protection guards
  • Easy to Implement and Maintain – simple to install and its measurement accuracy is assured with its straightforward calibration techniques and utilities
  • Total Control & Process Visibility – when integrated with NDC's high-performance scanners and TDi web gauging system, this platform provides the industry’s best web profiling performance for superior quality and productivity
  • Preeminent Support – all systems are backed by NDC's dedicated worldwide customer service organization available 24-7 via myNDC cloud service
FilmPro will be shown on NDC's Augmented Reality exhibit at this years K Show.

Low Energy X-Ray

Ultra-Performance Thickness and Basis Weight Measurements of Light Weight Products

NDC's NEW Low-Energy X-Ray gauges are ideally suited for thickness and basis weight measurements of light weight products such as stretch film, flexible packaging, battery separators and nonwovens. This transmission sensor brings a new level of performance while not requiring licensing in most countries.

  • Superior Performance – up to 10x better than traditional sensors with high reliability, fast and accurate measurements...across a wide range of operating weight and thicknesses
  • Highly Stable Operation – precisely regulated high-voltage supply for excellent measurement stability and no degradation of measurement accuracy over time
  • Non-Nuclear Gauge – minimizes regulatory requirements, and low-energy X-ray requires minimal shielding and provides zero radiation hazard when powered down
  • Preeminent Support – all systems are backed by NDC's dedicated worldwide customer service organization available 24-7 via myNDC cloud service

Augmented Reality

Showcasing Unique Augmented Reality Experience

Using tablets as the window into this virtual environment, users will get a close-up look at NDC’s versatile FilmPro infrared gauge for precisely measuring the basis weight and thickness of clear, voided, pigmented, cavitated, porous, translucent colored and even black tinted films. The measurement capability of FilmPro extends to single- or multi-layer products including biaxially-orientated films, cast films and stretch films. It can simultaneously measure the individual thicknesses of up to 6 different layers in co-extruded films.

The virtual system incorporates a scanning FilmPro sensor mounted on NDC’s MiniTrak O-Frame. FilmPro moves back-and-forth across the web, making film thickness measurements on a virtual plastic film. Show attendees will be able to see critical process data on the company’s virtual, advanced Pro.Net TDi process controller.

In addition to the HazePro and virtual exhibitions, NDC will be presenting its complete line of measurement and control solutions for biax film and sheet, blown film, cast film and sheet extrusion applications.

MiniTrak O-Frame

Compact, Robust Intelligent Scanning Frame

The MiniTrak™ intelligent O-Frame* scanner offers fast, accurate, reliable measurement performance that is tightly integrated into an intelligent, distributed web gauging architecture. This frame can be used with gauges that measure through the product such as Near Infrared, X-Ray, Beta and laser thickness.

  • Space-Saving Design – small footprint permits the frame fit into restricted positions on the process
  • Intelligent Scanner – the iFrame module manages the scanner, sensor and control operations for high system integrity plus responsive measurement and control
  • Expansive Gauge Support – MiniTrak O-Frame scanners can be combined and configured with NDC’s full sensor portfolio of transmission gauges and software products
  • High-Performance Construction – design is based on an identical box-beam construction for excellent rigidity and measurement performance
  • Long Service Life – linear bearing system and precision rails provide long life and deliver superior scanner run out, frame design protects internal components, and sealed brush system and inverted upper beam keep contaminants out
  • Easy Maintenance – modular parts can be easily replaced for minimum downtime
  • Low Cost of Ownership – built for long lasting, reliable, trouble-free operation day in and day out
  • Preeminent Support – all systems are backed by NDC's dedicated worldwide customer service organization available 24-7 via myNDC cloud service

NDC Technologies Unveils New HazePro Gauge at K Show 2019

Advanced technology brings clarity to extruded transparent film products

NDC Technologies, a leading global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, debuts its new HazePro gauge at the upcoming K Show (Hall 10 / Booth H42). This amazing advancement enables plastic manufacturers to accurately and reliably measure the haze of plastic films online and report in real time on this critical process information.
