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

Tire Tech 2019

TeraMetrix, Luna’s terahertz measurement division, will be attending the Tire Technology Expo this week in Hannover, Germany. On Tuesday, March 5th at 10:55am our partners at Bridgestone will be presenting how terahertz (THz) measurement and TeraMetrix technology is being used to capture online measurements of critical features such as total ply thickness and cord balance to gain a clear advantage in producing higher quality products…Read More

TeraMetrix announces a new high performance sensor for process control

In response to customer demand, TeraMetrix has added a new enhanced performance sensor to its product line.  There is strong market demand for the measurement of thinner material layers, and the new sensor is designed to meet that need. Designated the EPG to emphasize its enhanced performance, this sensor will open new markets and applications where the wall thickness, layer thickness or coating thickness is…Read More

High-speed waveform acquisition is key to terahertz imaging

Pulsed terahertz imaging can provide a wide array of information about a sample. Whether it is the thickness of particular layers, the presence of an internal void, detection of a specific gas, or the density distribution in a layer of foam, a pulsed terahertz image can provide valuable information.  Although it generates a 3-D dataset, with information on both the surface and the internal structure, one of…Read More

TeraMetrix™ Displays New Products for the Non-Destructive Testing Market at ECNDT

The TeraMetrix division of Luna will be announcing two new products for the non-destructive testing (NDT) market at ECNDT in Gothenburg, Sweden (http://www.ecndt2018.com).  The products will be displayed in the booth of Baugh and Weedon NDE, http://www.bw-nde.com (Booth #:  C04:01). Both the pulsed terahertz SPG (Single Point Gauge) and the LSG (Line Scan Gauge) will be available for demonstration.  These handheld terahertz sensors are easy…Read More
