The optical measurement technology from Sensory Analytics delivers transformative, non-contact online measurement data and creates new quality standards for coated webs, glass and metal products. Since coatings are getting thinner and thinner and are applied within tight tolerance limits, the ability to measure exact, precise and uniform layer thicknesses during production enables manufacturers to record in-process errors and avoid product waste. Sensory Analytics’ innovative technology reduces scrap and coating consumption to save material, improves line utilization to increase salable product yield, improves production throughput, and improves overall product quality to reduce customer demands for overall bottom-line improvement.

“Innovation is at the heart of the Sensory Analytics value framework, with R&D accounting for the largest portion of total spend each year. With a focus on developing commercially viable technology solutions that meet unresolved industrial customer needs, the company has consistently innovated SpecMetrix®. develops product offerings that are properly aligned with evolving trends in end market segments, “said Senior Consultant, Isaac Premsingh.

ROI technology is a more reliable in-process thickness measurement method for metal strip coatings. This is primarily requested by architectural metal cladding, roofing, HVAC, home appliances, electronics, and lithium-ion battery electrodes manufacturers. It solves the problems industrial customers who work with metal have faced due to unreliable measurements of pigmented or opaque coatings using traditional methods. Sensory Analytics has pushed the boundaries of conventional optical interference to create a new white space that has become a standard in optical thickness measurement today, solving unsolved challenges and delivering unprecedented amounts of process data.

Premsingh continued, “SpecMetrix® algorithms and software calculate the coating thickness to provide accurate coating thickness measurement data as output. It is the only technology that offers a substrate-independent solution for direct absolute thickness and basis weight measurement for all wet and dry coatings. within the measuring range. The versatile application and stage-gate efficiency of this technology have led to its widespread worldwide use and subsequent commercialization, as well as to a great success in customer acquisition. “

Frost & Sullivan presents this award every year to the company that has developed advanced products with innovative properties and functions that are quickly establishing themselves in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the resulting increase in customer value.
