Abstract

As technology evolves products are designed with narrower manufacturing tolerances which require more precise manufacturing practices and testing. This project designs and implements a scanning thickness gauge for use in the sheet extrusion industry. The report discusses the need for the scanning thickness gauge and why a commercially available system was not an option. The report details the steps taken to program, interface, and implement a scanning thickness gauge using an existing thickness measurement device. The finished project is discussed including the limitations of the system and future improvements to the system.
