Coating Weight Gauge

Coating Weight Gauge Integrated Measurement Head

Global Gauge Corporation (GGC) is a USA-based manufacturer of X-Ray based measurement Gauges, including Coating Weight Gauges for many different steel coating applications, such as:

– Galvanizing
– Galvalume
– Electrolytic Tinning
– Aluminizing

Global Gauge’s Coating Weight Gauging system is capable of measuring various metallic coatings such as Zinc, Tin, Aluminum, and other hot metals coatings. The principle of operation is to direct an x-ray beam into the coated material, with enough energy level sufficient to fluoresce the steel substrate under the coating. By detecting and measuring the intensity of the “backscattered” radiation, the thickness of the coating can be accurate determined to a remarkably high degree. 

The Global Gauge Coating Weight Gauging System contains dual, next generation digital heads that are light-weight, using fiber optic cables for communications. 

Communications, HMI, and all other software characteristics can be customized per our customer requirements.

We have been manufacturing X-Ray-based Gauges for the steel and other metals industries for over 20 years. Today, the Global Gauge product line is recognized as the industry standard for non-contact thickness measurement systems for rolling mills and process lines. Throughout the entire production of flat-rolled steel and metals, Global Gauge’s X-Ray based Gauges deliver measurements with extreme accuracy and reliability. Nowhere is this more relevant than in coating applications, where our Coating Weight Gauges allow our customers to accurately measure the amount of material they are coating on a substrate.

In order to reduce the amount of over-coating on a substrate, forward-thinking manufacturers continue to rely on Coating Weight Gauges for measurement and optimization of their coating output. Coating Weight Gauges use x-ray technology to precisely measure the amount of coating on a substrate. Coating weight Gauges provide real time feedback data for operators to understand their current rate of coatings, and make quick coating weight adjustments during production. Coating Weight Gauges are extremely accurate, providing both top and bottom side-scanning measurements. This allows manufacturers to provide their customers with a uniform coating that meets quality specifications and satisfies their customer requirements, all the while maximizing their yield.
