Wet paint coatings perform functional tasks that depend on the coating thickness. The conventional test equipment for monitoring the layer thickness does not do justice to their task here, because the layers are destroyed by the measuring process and because these tests have a low repetition accuracy.
coatmaster can measure the coating thickness of wet paint on painted parts before drying. This enables process deviations to be detected at an early stage. This saves material costs, minimizes the production of faulty coated parts and optimizes quality because narrow tolerance windows are exactly maintained. It is also possible to measure the coating thickness even if the coating has already dried.
«The coatmaster enables us to measure the thickness of our zinc lamella systems in wet conditions and thus save a lot of time. The high accuracy and fast repetition rate make it an indispensable tool for commissioning and monitoring coating processes.» Christian Rabe, Head of Applied Technology, Dörken MKS-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG.
«The coatmaster automatically checks the wet paint layer thickness on our airbag caps around the clock. Any deviations that occur are detected immediately and can be adjusted immediately. The continuous process documentation proves our high quality standards as one of the world's leading suppliers of airbag systems.» Bernd Kunkel, Manager Process Engineering Plastics at Takata AG.
