Many applications, both in manufacturing and research, require precise material thickness measurements. This becomes especially difficult if the material is moving, is non conductive and/or translucent to clear.
The specifics of your application may make accurate measurements difficult; many circumstances prohibit contact measurement, and make laser measurements difficult or impossible, for example with thin clear materials such as glass, sapphire, plastic .
In cases such as these, capacitance measurement provides a highly accurate and cost-effective solution. While other measurement systems such as eddy current probes are incompatible with dielectric materials, the MTI Accumeasure (paired with MTI dielectric probes) provides touch-free and high-resolution thickness measurements with some simple calculations.
