Paper and converting products impact our everyday lives. Paper, film, foil, metal, textile, nonwovens, and other material webs are laminated, coated, and treated in a variety of manners to create intermediate or final products. These web materials are used in flexible packaging, tapes, cans, labels, tags, wraps, and many other consumer and industrial products. Measuring moistures, coat weight, and other parameters allows manufacturers to better control their processes and save costs.

Paper and converting manufacturers are challenged to meet high quality standards with a highly variable product. Moisture levels influence process efficiency, energy usage, waste management and quality, and measuring moisture ensures a usable product and reduces energy costs. Measuring coat weight, adhesive thickness or lacquer reduces costs associated with consumption and ensures uniform quality.

Near-Infrared (NIR) measurements provide an economical alternative to highly-regulated nuclear gauging. NIR analyzers are easy to install, calibrate and maintain, with extremely low cost of operation in comparison to other technologies such as ultrasound, microwave and time-of-flight. On-line measurement of coat weight and moisture speeds startup, reduces energy costs and scrap, and improves quality control while allowing for roll-to-roll or customer-run data archiving.

Process RF (Radio Frequency) analyzers use penetrating radio waves to determine the moisture content across a full sample thickness. Single point, array and hand-held analyzers provide a variety of sampling options from fully integrated in-process moisture profiling to at-line quality control. RF analyzers are widely used many industrial processes.
