The importance of measuring the thickness of packaging materials November 18,2021.

The thickness of the film material is an important characteristic of packaging materials, and different thicknesses are critical to other properties such as permeability, tensile strength, and impact resistance. In addition, the increase in material thickness will inevitably increase packaging costs and increase the burden on the environment. Therefore, controlling the thickness of material packaging materials within a reasonable range is an effective way to reduce production costs.

Test principle

Thickness tester of Plastic Film is the thickness value of the sample obtained by testing the displacement of the measuring head. When the measuring head automatically falls on the cutting board, the high-precision displacement sensor equipped with the equipment measures the initial displacement value of the measuring head. The measuring head is lifted up, the sample is placed between the measuring head and the cutting board, and the measuring head drops to the surface of the sample again , The displacement sensor tests the displacement value of the measuring head, and the difference between the two test values is the thickness of the sample.
