MTI Instruments Whitepaper: Capacitance Guide to Industrial Applications

Capacitance Guide to Industrial Applications This guide from MTI Instruments explains what you need to know about using electrical capacitance for measurement in industrial applications, including advanced manufacturing. Basic Principles Capacitance is the ratio of the change in an electric charge to the corresponding change [...]

Whitepaper: Why Capacitance? Benefits and Applications of Digital Capacitive Sensors

Industry applications illustrate the versatility and benefits of today's digital capacitive sensor technology. The electrical capacitance formed between a capacitance probe and target surface varies as a function of the distance, or gap, between those two surfaces.

Case-In-Point: Step Height Measurement (Thickness) of Copper Foil or EV Battery Film on a Roller Rig

Step Height Measurement (Thickness) of Copper Foil or EV Battery Film on a Roller Rig Leverage MTI Instruments’ digital Accumeasure system to measure the thickness of the material used as anode and cathode plates in rechargeable Li-Ion battery cells Many roll-to-roll finishing processes typically use a calender, or series of hard pressure rollers, to [...]

MTI Application Note: How to Achieve <1um Accuracy When Measuring Roller Gap

How to Achieve <1um Accuracy When Measuring Roller Gap Roller Gap Measurement with MTI Digital Accumeasure Capacitive Probes Many roll-to-roll finishing processes typically use a calender, or series of hard pressure rollers, to deliver smooth, high-quality products of plastic, textile, or paper (Fig 1). Ensuring a consistent material thickness, however, depends on the ability [...]

MTI Whitepaper: Easy Roller Gap Measurement Ensures Calendering Success

Easy Roller Gap Measurement Ensures Calendering Success Many roll-to-roll finishing processes typically use a calender, or series of hard pressure rollers, to deliver smooth, high-quality products of plastic, textile, or paper (Fig 1). Ensuring a consistent material thickness, however, depends on the ability to monitor, and maintain, a precise gap between rollers. This application [...]

A Comprehensive Guide to Non-Contact Sensors and Their Applications

A Comprehensive Guide to Non-Contact Sensors and Their ApplicationsSensors, both contact and non-contact, are crucial devices that allow the monitoring, detection, and reaction to conditions in an environment or within a process or piece of equipment. While myriad types of sensors exist and are designed to monitor varying conditions, all of them can be characterized [...]

How Capacitive Measurement Can Help Reduce Packaging Waste

Product packaging is often made of lightweight polymeric foams or plastic sheets and films. These materials are relatively inexpensive, but manufacturers still want to minimize waste and maximize yields. Across high volumes of low-cost materials, even a small per-unit savings can become significant, especially as the price of petroleum  – a key ingredient in [...]

Non-Contact Displacement Sensors for Detection and Measurement

Non-contact sensors detect or measure a physical property without making direct contact with the target, the object that is being monitored or measured. They are used to measure physical properties such as thickness, proximity, displacement, or distance. To obtain readings, non-contact displacement sensors emit a form of energy and may use capacitance, fiber optic, [...]

Advantages of Measuring Semiconductor Thin Film Thickness with Capacitance

Semiconductor Thin Films: Measuring Thickness with Capacitance In the semiconductor industry, thin films are deposited onto silicon and other wafer materials one atomic layer at a time. The thickness of these extremely thin coatings is important because thin-film thickness affects the wafer’s electrical, optical, and mechanical properties. With semiconductors, either conductive metallic films or [...]

Contact vs. Non-Contact Measurement and Linear Displacement Sensors

Contact vs. Non-Contact Measurement and Linear Displacement Sensors Linear displacement sensors are used to measure the distance between two points or two plane surfaces. They use various technologies, but there are two basic types: contact and non-contact. As their names suggest, contact sensors make physical contact with the object that is being measured and [...]
