Industrial and Commercial Thickness Measurement Applications

Mate Gauge provides laser thickness measurement solutions for hundreds of applications around the world.

We have a solution for every application.

We're experts in the design and integration of non-contact, thickness measurement reporting and control for manufacturing production lines.

Lead Acid Battery Manufacture

Measure your strip or plates on or off the line. Stop wedging as it happens, decrease active material waste, or reduce standard deviation. With Mate Gauge's data insights you can fully manage your material.

Lead Acid Battery Solutions

Lithium Ion Battery Manufacture

Ultra thin requires high accuracy measurements. Never stop your line to measure. Protect your foil from bend damage with micrometers and ensure reliable results from start to finish.

Lithium Ion Battery Solutions

Metals Manufacture

Using a Mate Gauge, you can detect immediately when your steel goes from off gauge to on gauge material. No more eyeballing or stopping for manual measurements. With our touchscreen display, you can tell immediately when your head or tail end needs to be cut.

Solutions for the Metals Industry

Building Products

Be an industry leader. Our non-contact laser gauge solutions measure the thickness throughout the length of your boards, reducing waste and ensuring a high quality product - every time.

Solutions for Wood and Forestry Products Manufacturers

Experimental and Advanced Materials

We work with leading labs and scientific communities to provide extremely accurate thickness measurement as well as surface texture 

Let's talk about finding a solution for you  

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.

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.

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.

Non-contact thickness gauges consistently outperform manual measurement tools

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.
