Measurement and Control Platform

October 1, 2009

Thermo Scientific Iplus! is a new offering from Thermo Fisher Scientific. The new gauging platform is designed to accurately measure weight or thickness in cast film extrusion, sheet extrusion, nonwovens, vinyl calendering and extrusion coating applications. The company claims that Iplus! incorporates advanced sensor technology and powerful, streamlined software. It is the latest measurement and control system in the Thermo Scientific web gauging family of products.

The system is easy to use and maintain with an intuitive operator interface that provides users with the measurement and control they need at a low cost of ownership, according to Thermo Fisher Scientific. With up to 2000 measurement profile points and a high-precision, high-resolution sensor, the Iplus! is intended to provide reliable, real-time assessments of material weight or thickness.

“The Iplus! meets the growing demands of film manufacturers who want high performance at the right price but whose application doesn’t require the feature-rich Thermo Scientific 21Plus! Platform,” said Tam Nguyen, product manager for Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The platform’s strong return on investment, high performance and cost reduction through material savings make it possible for manufacturers to compete in the global marketplace,” said Mr. Nguyen.

Offered as an option to increase product uniformity, the AutoDie Profile Control’s advanced, non-linear mapping capabilities helps reduce scrap or non-conforming product, which ultimately helps to cut annual material costs.
