Affilliated Companies:    META-Automation offers heavy Duty Gauges for Measuring the Basis Weight and Coating of products during Manufacturing. Depending on Application META-Automation provides a wide-range of methods such as :  traditional low Energy Radioactiv Sources (β- and γ-Rays),  Infrared (NIR) Radiation  and.   NEW : Non Radioactive - Microwaves based Sensor Along these applications Load Cells and Computer Aided Weighing Systems round up the Weight Measuring Program . The Sensors can be configured either as one sided Measurement (backscattering mode) or as double sided in Transmission operating Mode. The On-Line Monitoring of Basis Weight itself can be realized at fixed Positions along the Process Lines or as scanning, cross traversing  Measurement at the End of certain Production Phases (e.g. after dryer section). To do that nummerous  Sensor / Scanner Configurations but also customized Designs are offered capable to operate in enviromentally hostile Conditions. Real-Time measurement within sampling Time of typically 20 ms leave sufficient Time to accompanied Software Analyzer Units to perform standard and customized statistical Calculations and continuous Recording of the monitored manufacuring Process allowing full Transparency and Tracaebility of the End Product.   A variety of also offered dedicated Machine Controls (e.g. Speed Control, Flow Control, predictive Smith-models  etc) substantially improve and optimise the Production Process. All aforementioned Sensors measure total Weight of the Product. In Combination with Moisture Sensors the Dry Weight (net Weight of Substance) can be precicely calculated. .      Radioactive Sources in Use:  Promethium 147 for up to 200 gr/m2, Krypton 85 for up to 1200 gr/m2, Strontium 90 for more than 1200 gr/m2,Americium 241 for more than 5000 gr/m2 Iron Fe 55 for Titandioxyd, Cellulose, Polypropylen (PP), Polyethylen (PE), PVC, Aluminium, Carbon (C), Magnesium, Water, Kaolin etc WMR-9 : Technical Information  WMR-9 : Method of Operation WMR-9 :  Application Coating, Layers  META: Packpaper Application  For multilayer- Components Thickness and typical Measurement Ranges of :  PE Polyethylen up to 280 microns , PA Polyamid up to 90 microns, EVOH up to 25 microns,  PP Polypropylen up to 180 microns,  PET Polyethylenterephthalat up to 200 microns, PU up to 190 microns , etc  ----------  Indicative Combinations are : PE/PA, PE/EVOH, PE/PP, PE/PET, PE/EVOH/PA, PE/EVOH/PC, PA/EVOH,  PA/PP, PA/PET, PA/EVOH/PP, P/EVOH,  PE/SURLYN, PE/PU, PET/ACRYLIC FMR-9  Technical Information META: Tissue Application Basis Weight and Coating  -(Radioactive Radiation) META: Scanner Gauges Basis Weight and Coating  -(InfraRed Radiation) for plastic Films- and Polymers META: Ionization Chamber META: Paper measurement META: Bulk Application META: Non Woven Application META: Carton Application META: Tissue Application META: Paper Application META: Plastics Line  Application META: InfraRed Gauge META: InfraRed Optics WMR-9 : Technical Data Promethium Head  Home          About Company         Products & Support          Contact         Terms & Conditions         Imprint         Disclaimer                 NEW : Non Radioactive - Microwaves based Sensor MMW-9 : Function Description of Microwaves based Weight Sensor The Head can be used to measure Materials such as : Paper and carton, Gum, Glas, Textiles, Wood, Plastics, Non Woven, Construction materials, Food, Agricultural META: Measurement  moisture, weight, flow, thickness, layers, consistency / density, temperature Equipment : propulsion control of ships, exhaust gas monitoring systems, alarm monitoring and safety systems, Technological Automation : process control, quality control systems, control moisture, -weight, -temperature, energy control, energy power automation.
