Thickness measurement of wood or metal – with radar
Our contactless radar solution measures wood, metal and plastic panels with sub-millimeter precision.
The automated thickness measurement of wood, metal or plastic is indispensable for optimum quality in product processing. Our radar solution enables a contactless detection of the thickness of wood panels, semi-finished metal products, plastic plates and composite or ceramic plates. As a result, damages of the product surface by mechanical measuring methods are a thing of the past. Furthermore, measurement errors due to gaps between the plastic, metal or wood panels and tactile sensors are excluded with radar technology. The highly accurate OndoSense radar sensors offer sub-millimeter precision and a measurement frequency of 100 Hertz and more.
With our robust radar technology, you will achieve reliable and precise measurement results even in challenging production environments with dirt, dust, heat and difficult lighting conditions. Our high-precision radar technology is therefore an excellent solution for the contact-free thickness measurement of wood, metal or plastic products.
