Inoex Warp Gauge measures wall thickness

June 29, 2023
The device can be integrated directly into an extrusion blow molding line for contactless, non-destructive measurement.

Warp Gauge This Inoex device can be integrated directly into an extrusion blow molding line to measure the wall thickness of parts such as drums or liners for hydrogen vessels and intermediate bulk containers. The gauge generates a grid of measuring points using a sensor that is guided vertically to the part surface. If desired, it also can measure the melt hose within a continuous blow molding line.  

What’s new? The device, which Inoex introduced at Interpack in Düsseldorf, Germany, in May. 

Benefits Contactless, non-destructive wall thickness measurements when used as a stand-alone device. When used in combination with simple kinematics, it can measure a blow molded part fully automatically after demolding
