Learn about the benefits of using the VenPad Sensor in your company.

The VenPad sensor has specially been developed for measuring the thickness profile of sticky film or with a sensitive surface vulnerable to scratching. Hinged loosely for easy adjustment to any film surface, the measuring head oscillates 360° around the bubble.

A so-called Venturi effect guarantees a constant distance between film and sensor in any part of the measurement. With a resolution of 0.1 µm, even the smallest thickness variations are detected.

Características técnicas:

Measuring range 6 – 500 µm
Resolution 0,1 µm
