TeraMetrix Explores Off-line Terahertz (THz) Measurements of Bottle and Preform Layers

Manufacturers use both on-line process control measurements, and off-line quality control measurements.  The off-line measurements are typically those that take additional time, but often show detail that cannot be obtained on-line.  More in-depth study early in the process can actually decrease the setup time (possibly by days) for the manufacture of a new product and help characterize product specifications (e.g., wall thickness) and effectiveness of…Read More

TeraMetrix Introduces the Dual Channel Terahertz Control Unit

TeraMetrix, a Division of Luna, is launching the next phase in its terahertz measurement systems with the introduction of their Dual Channel Terahertz Control Unit (TCU54nm). The new product allows multiple sensor heads to be attached to a single control unit.  The TCU54nm will reduce the per sensor cost of deployment, opening new applications that were previously cost prohibitive. Terahertz sensors are being adopted in…Read More

TeraMetrix Uses Online Terahertz Measurements to Improve Bottle Manufacturing

One of the most critical properties of a bottle or container is wall thickness.  Whether single layer or a multi-layer structure, the performance and quality of the container is very dependent on the layer thickness values. The TeraMetrix T-Ray 5000 terahertz control unit (TCU) and an Online EPG Sensor Head have demonstrated the ability to measure the thickness of both single layer and all the…Read More

TeraMetrix Shares Terahertz Advantages with the Conversion Industry

In April the TeraMetrix team attended the ICE 2019 (International Converting Exhibition) in Louisville, Kentucky. The conference provided an opportunity for our team to share the advantages of terahertz technology and what it could provide for conversion applications. Conversion, as might be implied by the name, refers to the process of converting one product into another.  For example, coating adhesive on a piece of paper,…Read More

Using Terahertz Technology to Measure Total Thickness of Manufacturing Materials

Following a successful trip to Tire Tech Expo last month here’s a closer look at the ability of Terahertz measurement to perform an on-demand on-production material property check to ensure the THz measurement remains accurate. Especially through material batch changes, shift changes, production stops / restarts and new product starts. Terahertz radiation is part of the electromagnetic spectrum lying between microwaves and the far-IR. This…Read More

TeraMetrix Demonstrates Simultaneous Measurement of Online Tire Ply Thickness and Cord Balance at Tire Tech 2019

Earlier this month, TeraMetrix’s Senior Research Scientist Jeffery White and  Bridgestone USA’s Steven Jenkins presented at the 2019 Tire Tech Expo in Hannover, Germany. Both presentations focused on using TeraMetrix’s terahertz (THz) system to simultaneously measure the total body ply thickness and the balance of either steel or fabric cords. The installation of a TeraMetrix THz system in the Bridgestone facility in Aiken, South Carolina continues…Read More
