Serving web applications with in-line, real-time si coat weight analysis


rocess control in production processes is imperative. Silicone coatings applied to paper and plastic substrates modify

the release characteristics of a product like labels or packaging. If too little silicone is used or if there are areas of the web where the silicone coating is missing, the adhesive release properties will be adversely affected in release applications, or the denesting characteristics of the vacuum-formed plastic will be compromised. These circumstances can cause product rejection or disruption in manufacturing and other downstream processes. If too much silicone is applied, the cost of the manufactured roll increases, reducing profitability and, in some cases, impacting acceptance and performance of the end product. Designed explicitly to meet the needs of challenging conditions found in silicone coating processes, the NEX LS from Applied Rigaku Technologies, Inc. helps maintain routine quality control. Featuring third- generation EDXRF technology, the NEX LS represents the next evolution of scanning process coatings analyzers for web

applications. The intuitive design allows users to self-install and customise the system to meet their process needs. For continuous

monitoring and control, the NEX LS linear scanner provides real-time Si coat weight profiling of your process. The NEX LS consists of a measurement head mounted to a motorized frame, which carries the head back and forth across a moving web. Real-time data display as a graphical cross direction and machine direction profile. Users input basic information about samples, and the advanced NEX LS software helps you achieve a production level of consistent quality and minimise costs. In addition to real-time cross direction and machine direction profiles, user-defined recipes inclusive of scan speeds and sub- second measurement settings, advance roll reporting, and raw data logging are

included for traceability and audits. Complete roll recording includes measurement value, date, time, length, product name, and other information. Also included are web scan average and individual zone measurements.
