Benchtop or Offline Laser Thickness Gauges

Easily add ultra high resolution thickness measurement to your workflow - Right out of the box!

Why add a benchtop Mate Gauge to your process?

It’s the perfect first step toward a fully automatic in-line gauging and control system. It gives all stakeholders (including product designers, manufacturing engineers, QA, and operators) a chance to gain full confidence in laser thickness measurements and understand their thickness specifications.

  • Laser sensors on the top and bottom capture the entire plate profile, including texture
  • They’re lightning-fast and incredibly thorough! A typical plate can be scanned in only 3 seconds and captures a thousand individual data points across the surface
  • Consistently accurate measurement with NIST traceable calibration
  • Flexible and portable. Set them up anywhere – no installation required

Cut the time to improved quality and performance, company-wide, by 6-12 months.

Once you understand the answer to key questions like; what is our paste density-weight-thickness correlation? - you’ll be able to tighten up your designs and make more precise, higher-performing products.

Non-contact thickness gauges consistently outperform manual measurement tools

Manual thickness measurement tools, such as calipers and micrometers, are widely used primarily due to their low cost and familiarity. 

However, more and more companies are turning to modern laser gauging techniques as a proven way to increase the efficiency and quality of their processes and products.

Improve the Production of Flat Goods

Manufacturing lines that depend on accurate thickness, variation and texture will see massive process improvements by integrating with Mate Gauge. Manufacturers of flat goods (for example, plywood, flooring or other forestry products, rolled steel and other metals, plastic production, experimental films, sheets and materials, and consumer goods) are ideal candidates for a Mate Gauge solution.  

Steel Manufacture Thickness Measurement

Immediately detect when your steel goes from off-gauge to on-gauge material.

No more guessing or stopping for manual measurements. With our touchscreen display, you always know when your head or tail end needs to be cut.

Thickness Measurement for the Steel Industry

Forestry and Consumer Product Thickness Measurement

Precise and continuous measurement solutions for sanding, planning, and finishing lines.

Our non-contact laser gauge solutions measure the thickness throughout the length of your boards or sheets, reducing waste and ensuring a high quality, consistent product.

Thickness Measurement for Wood Products

Lithium-Ion Battery Production

Never stop your line to measure.

Mate Gauge delivers the high-accuracy measurements required by ultra-thin films.

Protect your foil from bend damage caused by micrometers and ensure reliable results from start to finish.

Thickness Measurement in Lithium-Ion Battery Production

4 ways Mate Gauge's technology can integrate and substantially improve your battery production lines. 

Simple Substitution

Replace calipers and other measurement tools with a near-process, high-speed, benchtop laser gauge.

 Improve What You Have

Add a Mate Gauge (like the MG3) directly onto your production line and measure every plate coming down the line.

Automate Your Lines

Connect your MG3 directly to the pasting machine and automatically output consistent plates with closed-loop control.

Build Better Batteries

High accuracy and minimal variance mean tighter tolerances, enabling creative new battery designs.
