ThermHex Waben is using a non-nuclear and non-radioactive quality control machine of Hammer-IMS. The three-sensor inline scanning system measures the grammage of thermoplastic composite honeycomb panels and polypropylene honeycomb cores. In addition, the system with high measurement gap automatically adjusts the production's extrusion die to compensate for grammage variations. The innovative Hammer-IMS machine controls the production process better and eliminates human-related errors in the products of ThermHex Waben.
Of course ... we are always moving with our new technology. But this time we are moving our HQ offices!
As of January 2022, Max Bertram joined Hammer-IMS as sales & business developer. It looks like Max thinks internationally and has experienced different cultures. Here is a brief Q&A to get to know Max a little bit better.
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.
The two-head M-Ray measuring system of Hammer-IMS ensures continuous grammage monitoring. In line with its sustainable corporate policy, Vetex is moving away from a radioactive source to a more sustainable technology. This installation is the result of a constructive collaboration between Le Clair & Meert, Vetex and Hammer-IMS.
Watch our latest dual scanning system, which serves as an inline project for PMC felts at Heimbach Group (Olten, Switzerland). The automated M-Ray based system for grammage quality control eliminates radioactive sources at what the customer calls the pre-needle loom. We collaborated with Vansichen Linear Technology to fit a nearly 9 meters long steel linear module into a very limited inclined space envelope.
A few months ago Joost Poelmans joined the Hammer-IMS team as R&D engineer. Say hello to Joost who studied engineering and collaborates on pushing the non-nuclear M-Ray weight and thickness measuring technology. He also introduces intelligent machine vision to further increase the quality control experience for plastic, textile and nonwoven manufacturers.
