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.

Your added value with radar


No product damage due to measuring.

  • Contactless thickness measurement of wood panels, metal semi-finished products, plastic, composite or ceramic plates.
  • No risk of product rejects due to damages of the product surface – in contrast to mechanical measuring methods.


Error-free, high-precision measurement.

  • With radar, measurement errors caused by gaps between tactile sensors and plastic or wooden panels are excluded.
  • Our radar sensors enable high-precision measurements with a precision in the sub-millimetre range.


Fast, maintenance-free quality control.

  • Our radar sensor enables a more productive quality control through measurements with a high rate (100 Hz and more).
  • Reduced maintenance costs: Radar has no moving parts and requires almost no cleaning.
