Inline Thickness Measurement for Quality and Production Assurance

DMR 6000

Measuring System Analysis (MSA), Type-1 Study

GreCon checks the accuracy and repeating accuracy of a DMR 6000 during the internal system check after the system is built. The measurement capability of the system is a calculation of statistical quality parameters based on the measured results. 

User-Friendly, Simple, Robust and Accurate

High availability, operational reliability and, above all, consistent measuring quality are ensured by thecalibration with integrated self-diagnosis system and the construction of the system. This leads to high confidence in the system and acceptance by the operator. The MSA ensures that the displayed information constitutes a reliable basis for the monitoring and optimisation of the production process.


An automatic calibration system ensures consistent measuring accuracy for all measuring principles. The measuring heads are brought together and calibrated. For thickness measurement with ct-frame, calibration is done outside the material flow which makes a utilisation in endless productions and panel productions with small panel gaps possible.

  • After the Press

In the wood based industry, thickness gauges are combined with GreCon Ultrasonic Measuring Systems UPU 6000 and Board Scales to a quality assurance station. Data is recorded and evaluated by one central visualisation computer.

  • Sanding Line

A combination of up to three thickness gauges is used for final quality control in the sanding line. For example: a 1-track thickness gauge is installed before the calibration sander, a 2-track system after the calibration sander and a 3-, 5- or 7-track system after the finishing sander. Besides quality control, the measured data can be used to adjust the sanders to the desired thickness values.
