Glass and Plastic Thickness Measurement
The Filmetrics F70 measures the thickness of glass and plastic materials up to 13mm thick. Measurements are non-contact and can be made on flat or curved surfaces. Tabletop and inline versions are available.
Common applications include measuring lenses, sheets, tubing, food and beverage containers, and medical vials.Go to F70 Product Page

Filmetrics offers free trial measurements- results are typically available in 1-2 days
PVC Measurement Example
The accurate measurement of soft, clear plastic tubing can be challenging using traditional contact methods due to the compressive nature of the sample. By using Filmetrics’ color-coding thickness measurement (CTM) technique, we demonstrate the ability to measure the wall thickness of clear, flexible PVC tubing. This non-contact method provides fast and reliable thickness measurements on a variety of transparent substrates and coatings with high tolerance to curvature and surface roughness.
