What is the GPA-Win?
This software has been specially developed for the GPA film thickness measuring units. With the PC connected to the GPA by Ethernet, all set data required for the measurement is entered by the operator. Once the measurement is finished, the software automatically saves the measurement data and the thickness profile. Even if you are not connected to the GPA, there is the possibility to process and evaluate the recorded profiles.
Leader for more than thirty years in thickness profile measurement.
This programme analyses the thickness profile in relation to the symmetrical factors of the extruder that influence the thickness distribution. Thus it is possible to find out which elements of the blown film line cause problems and to what extent they influence the quality of the film. By means of appropriate adjustments of these elements the indicated errors can be eliminated.
This indicates the number of measured values that exceed the tolerance limit and shows their statistical distribution. Additionally, the machine capacity cpk is calculated and displayed.
Processing the profile:
All programmed values can be changed after the measurement has been finished. An edge filter makes it possible to erase false measurements such as plies.
Up to 10 profiles can be selected from the database for overlaying.
All the software we use on our equipment is developed by Octagon.
