Terahertz System

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 3, 2012 — Advanced Photonix Inc. has introduced a terahertz system called T-Gauge, developed for use on the factory floor for quality and process control during manufacture of web processing and converting products.

The ability of terahertz energy to penetrate nonconducting materials, combined with the system’s high-speed data processing, enables nondestructive inspection of web-based products with feedback for continuous process adjustments. The nonnuclear system is sensitive to physical and chemical composition changes in products and can measure single- and multilayer thickness, density and basis weight, and can detect subsurface defects and delamination.

Manufacturers can mount proprietary and patented fiber-coupled sensors on a scanning frame without contacting or impeding the product. They also can collect more information than was previously possible, resulting in tighter tolerances, lower cost and improved quality.

The system is aimed at replacing nuclear gauges.
