Good Reasons for an inline Basis Weight Measurement

Basis weight is very often displayed in terms of g/m², expressing the weight of a sheetlike material or fabric per unit area. This value corresponds directly to the raw material consumption during production and - at a given density - the thickness of the fabric. So it is an important parameter for quality control and cost efficiency.

Checking your production process and the product quality continuously by automatic measurement of the basis weight means:

  • Continuous process supervision when you aim to save raw material
  • Less reject due to immediate alarms in case your product is not ok.
  • Less downtime of your line when matching your process using cut out basis weight samples.
  • Upgrading product validity by adding measurement protocols for your customer.
  • Possibility to use the continuous value for controlling your process automatically.
