What is a Mate Gauge?
A Mate Gauge is a tool that automatically measures the thickness and texture of any sample placed between it's laser sensors.
A Mate Gauge can be small or extremely large - installed on a bench or inline on a moving production line.
How to Buy a Mate Gauge
Each application is unique - our customers rely on their Mate Gauge to provide critical quality control and system control over entire production lines.
That's why we spend the time to make sure we understand YOUR application and specific use case.
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.
Measure without stopping your lines!
We’re experts at customization. If you don’t see what you’re looking for in this list, reach out to us. We’ll work together to integrate our product into your existing system.
Why laser thickness measurement?
The main advantage of using laser gauges versus legacy tools, like micrometers, is their ability to provide accurate, consistent thickness measurements without interfering with (compressing or damaging) the sample.
Using our laser gauges, you can instantly measure material thickness at thousands of different points, review detailed cross sections of the material surface, configure product recipes and tolerance limits, and more.

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