Applied Rigaku Technologies is showcasing NEX LS, an in-line silicone coatings analyzer for real-time process control at Labelexpo Americas 2022.

NEX LS serves web applications and allows technicians to monitor their processes from the beginning to the end of the roll without the need to stop production. Its software is easy to use and provides a clear visual representation of the process. 

The system’s analytical head sweeps back and forth across a moving web, and real-time data displays as a graphical cross direction and machine direction profile. This helps silicone coaters make immediate quality control decisions to achieve a targeted laydown and ensure release properties or barriers are not compromised. 

The company also promotes an entry-level at-line benchtop for measuring very low silicone coating weights and metal catalysts in silicone coatings. Both benchtop and process solutions feature EDXRF (energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence) technology, a standard, non-destructive technique used in the paper and film industry for determining silicone coating thickness and composition.
