As demands placed on coatings and electroplating rise, production tolerance limits shift tighter. Significant value can be realized when processes are continuously monitored and adjusted in real time, improving quality and yield.
Real value can be added when production measurements are networked with automated quality control. In a process, a coating can become thinner or thicker over time. Automated measuring systems can detect changes and adjust a process in real time. Measuring and adjusting a coating process in real time helps avoid rejects and increases quality. Common measurement methods, such as X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and magnetic dry film thickness (DFT) methods, can be integrated in the production process, connecting through IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things).
Join Rob Weber and Jim Bogert as they discuss different test methods available for in-process thickness measurements of paint, powder coating, and electroplated coatings.Presented by:
