The Proscan MasterTrak is a complete online thickness or width measurement and control system. Using a non-contact measurement technique to measure the thickness or width profile of continuous or piece products as they are being produced. When used to measure the thickness, the system can be supplied either to measure single or multiple points across the width of the product. The MasterTrak is capable of measuring accurately on materials such as soft, fragile, abrasive and many other types of product where traditional contact methods have proved not to be effective. Even in industries where traditional contact methods have been used successfully the Proscan MasterTrak offers a more reliable measurement with less maintenance. Proscan MasterTrak is a real time thickness or width monitor, displaying absolute dimensions to the process line operator. In addition, the system logs every measurement, enabling detailed statistical reports to be produced. The Proscan MasterTrak has the option available for proportional feedback control for automatically regulating the process to maintain the correct dimensions.

The sensor naming convention is generally as follow:
First letter - S stands for Spectral (sometimes called chromatic or white light sensor)
First letter - L stands for Laser triangulation sensor
First number - i.e. 5, represents the distance from the target (stand off) in mm that the sensor needs to be at in order to take measurements
Second number - i.e. 2, is the measureing range in mm of the sensor
Hence, an S5/03 sensor is a spectral type sensor with a 5mm stand off and a 300 micron measuring range.
Other sensors are available. Please contact us for alternative ranges.
A choice of sensor options allows you to maximise measurement accuracy for your application.
As the Proscan MasterTrak 2 is non-contact it is not subject to wear or variables associated with mechanical or human intervention and as a result, regular remastering is not required.
By continuous monitoring and reducing the need for manual measurement significant cost savings can be achieved. In many cases improved process control makes it possible to reduce nominal values to the lower end of the specified tolerance band resulting in material cost savings. Typically the investment cost of a Proscan MasterTrak system will be recovered in just a few months.
The Proscan MasterTrak can form a very important part of a quality control system ensuring 100% dimensional logging and control.
Because the Proscan MasterTrak 2 has no contact with the product mechanical wear is minimal and very little maintenance required.
The system has been robustly designed to give reliable operation in production environments.
The Proscan MasterTrak 2 has been specially designed to make the installation simple, minimising the implementation costs.
