Patented by SYNCRO, represents the latest film measuring technology on the market.

Main advantages versus current competing technology :

  • NIR technology, based on interferometer concept avoiding any bureaucratical procedure.
  • Optical technology has a small, 1 mm measuring area, much more accurate than IR, X-ray or Beta-ray whose measuring area can be higher than 10 mm.
  • Optical is backscatter so it doesn’t require a receiver.
  • Optical doesn’t care if film is moving up and down or of any particularly vibration, quality of measure will be kept the same.
  • Thanks to the unique installation on the chill roll, optYscan will guarantee a faster response in auto profile control due to its proximity to the die. This is important during start-up where each meter of film extruded is important.
