A High speed and high precision automatic laser thickness measurement system

We developed this system in 2019. It is the first automatic online thickness measurement system in this field. All the process system status can be real-time monitored. Therefore, all the process data can be traced. The communication interfaces and data protocols can be customized for different applications. It runs 24 hours a day and has continuously worked for more than 28 months by the end of Apr. 2022.
