Instant insight into the process React quickly, make changes and maintain control

ZEISS spectrometer systems determine the color and thickness of coatings as well as transmission and reflection spectra. This gives you instant insight into the state of the process and product, allowing you to quickly get coating systems running, changeover products efficiently and keep constant control.

  • Process control of coatings

    Following the coating process, the properties are determined by measuring spectral transmission and/or reflection. This is done inside coating chambers in a vacuum or in the atmosphere, with values provided immediately for corrective intervention if necessary.

  • Quality control in the production process

    Quality parameters such as color, layer homogeneity or color impression at different viewing angles are continuously measured and recorded without user intervention.

  • In-process metrology

    Systems are available for in-process measurement of coating parameters. These are characterized by high measurement speed and accuracy without sample adjustment.

  • Embedding in the process control system

    All ThinProcess® measuring systems store the results in an SQL database, with integration into the process control system taking place via optional fieldbus interfaces. Integration into MES is also possible.
