Design of the maX Basis Weight Measurement System

Modular and versatile

Usually, a basis weight sensor is carried CD across a running fabric by a travelling unit. In case of the maX system, the linear drive is not an O-frame but a cost efficient single rail, because the fabric needs to be scanned from one side only.

Width and height of the measurement system will be designed individually to the space requirements of the production line.

The whole measurement system is set up in a modular way. By default it consists of the following components:

  • single sided X-ray sensor,
  • fieldbus cabinet and drive cabinet,
  • travelling unit according to fabric width with stands,
  • chiller unit supplying a closed loop circle,
  • display and operation software,
  • workstation.
