Hammer-IMS is proud to showcase its Marveloc-CURTAIN-MINI at the 13th European Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AABC 2023) with a combination of U-Ray and L-Ray sensors that together perform thickness and basis weight measurements of battery film electrode coating and cell calendering stages.
Bilateral international agreement signed for coating grammage improvement in finishing lines for woven, tufted and needle-punched carpets and artificial grass.
Vandewiele's daughter company Bejimac, specialist in textile finishing machines, established a structural collaboration with Hammer-IMS on quality control of latex coating. This agreement fits in the shared vision of Vandewiele, Bejimac and Hammer-IMS to digitalize the finishing lines for carpets in which accurate, adaptive measurement plays an essential role. Hammer-IMS dedicatedly integrates its non-nuclear technology for measuring coating grammage into Vandewiele-Bejimac finishing lines. Thanks to the real-time measurement and automatic system adaptation of these smart systems, carpet manufacturers maintain highest product quality while reducing the usage and scrap of expensive latex material. The collaboration agreement stipulates that Vandewiele sells and distributes its Hammer-IMS enabled finishing lines. This resellership covers the entire world, except EU, the United Kingdom, Norway and Switzerland.
Hammer-IMS installed an inline multi-sensor quality control machine at Toiltech in France. Toiltech is specialized in manufacturing technical and industrial textiles. The project has been set up in collaboration with Erhardt+Leimer France, which represents Hammer-IMS in France.
In the coming Fall and Winter months, Hammer-IMS will exhibit and/or participate in four events across Europe: Hofer Vliesstofftage in Hof (D), International Textile Coating & Lamination Congress in Ghent (B), K-Messe in Düsseldorf, and Global Insulation Conference & Exhibition in Estoril (P). Hammer-IMS will show a number of quality control solutions integrating plenty of innovations that provide instant feedback to manage and optimize your in-line production.
After INDEX in Geneva last November, Hammer-IMS resumed its exhibition tour across Germany in Winter & Spring 2022. Many people came and visited us to watch one of our non-nuclear inline thickness and basis weight measuring systems in action! For example, the sleek and slim C-frame based system proves to be ideal for quality control of foils and films as well as coatings, paper, fabrics, textiles and nonwovens.
Every now and then, we give the word to one of our colleagues at Hammer-IMS. Today, Nele Reynders, Senior R&D Engineer, comments on the latest in measuring machine construction and measurement system integration.
This short video shows a few simple experiments explaining why M-Ray technology is a perfect fit for inline coating weight measuring. Opaque materials such as bariumsulphate, titaniumdioxide or calciumcarbonate do not limit the applicability of the technology. M-Ray technology therefor has a significant advantage compared to X-Ray technologies.
Hammer-IMS kindly invites you to the upcoming Belgian event (co-organized by Hammer-IMS) where Technical and Product Manager Tom Redant will speak. The event includes short presentations related to innovative measuring techniques for coatings and a visit of the Hammer-IMS facilities.
The coming months, Hammer-IMS will cross Germany for speaker assignments or tabletop exhibits in leading conferences. The tour consists of textiles, nonwovens or plastics related events targeting material research, inline manufacturing and quality inspection. The first stops on the tour are Berlin - Textile Coating and Laminating (TCL) conference – and Hof - Hofer Vliesstofftage – both taking place simultaneously.
Hammer-IMS shows a contactless coating thickness measurement at Eurofinish in Haasrode Belgium the coming days. Our CURTAIN-demo setup shows how we can provide clean solutions for contactless coating thickness measurement, e.g. for textile coatings. Come and discuss your project with us even it requires ATEX certification. www.eurofinish.be.
Based on millimeter waves, Hammer-IMS developed new systems for measuring thickness and weight in production lines of sheets and films. This innovative electromagnetic technology is seen as a powerful alternative for today’s nuclear measuring equipment, which governments want to gradually ban. Furthermore the technology offers up to micron level accuracy on industrial production floors, measuring both transparent and opaque in any color as well as rough & shiny surfaces.
