Inline Laser Thickness Gauges

Add a Mate Gauge Inline laser measuring system to your existing line and automatically achieve target thickness while reducing scrap and avoiding user error. Our non-contact laser gauges provide accurate, repeatable, and reliable measurements by integrating directly into your new or existing lines.

Automate your Lead Acid Battery Production Line!

Measure strips or plates without stopping your line. Stop wedging as it happens. Decrease active material waste.  Reduce standard deviation. Protect staff from lead exposure. Mate Gauge's team of integration engineers can add automation to practically any new or existing lead acid battery production line.

Automate your production line and start building better batteries!

Measure with Accuracy

Laser-based, non-contact measurement allows for high-speed, ultra-accurate sampling across the plate or strip - even in the toughest environments!

Decrease Waste

Measuring active material enables you to monitor the amount of paste you use and immediately make changes further up the line to return you to spec. 

Get Rich Data

From mean thickness and width to rugosity - know it all, all the time, with real-time display, historical reporting and integrated, shared databases.
