TeraCota 3000

A non-contact, single or multi-layer thickness sensor with scanning capability

TeraView presents a polymer film thickness gauge designed for industry.

The sensor can precisley determine thickness of single or multi-layer polymer films.

The terahertz sensor is non-contact and capable of delivering both ‘streaming’ data in a production environment and point measurements in the laboratory.

Based on TeraView’s proprietary technology, the sensor represents a significant leap beyond the current method of measurement for quality and process control in the polymer industry.

TeraCota 3000

Production Features
  • Works with both single & multi-layer polymer films.
  • Non-contact, no marking or damage to coating material.
