New scanning technology measures barrier film thicknessCombyscan by Syncro is based on Syncro's Optylayer system, which uses capacitive and inductive technology to measure the total thickness of the barrier film in blown film lines.
The near-infrared technique used by Combyscan with Optylayer is able to discriminate between the different layers in a complex barrier structure. As a provider of automation for all types of extrusion lines, Syncro takes advantage of B&R control technology and fast, reliable POWERLINK network technology to provide communication between all the machines in the line. Syncro has been working together with B&R to serve the global market, leveraging the responsive support available from B&R locations around the world.
