Gauge Features

  • External Varnish Thickness / Weight / OV (Over Ink)
  • Rim Coat Lacquer Thickness / Weight
  • Reverse Wall Inspection
  • Dual system equipped with two spectrometers – Visible Light and Near Infrared (NIR) light, enables the OV/over ink inspection
  • Brand-new fibre set up creating a smaller spot size to optimise measurement of rim coat and reverse wall, both with dedicated tooling to enable precise location of measurement positions on both features
  • Enables monitoring and control of the lacquer distribution
  • Absolute, not inferred, lacquer thickness measurement
  • High positional accuracy, ensuring true location of measurement points
  • Multi-size capability so no need for change tooling
  • Traceable measurements to NIST standards
