APOS CureKT determines the surface curing degree inline after the short cycle KT-press. CureKT replaces sampling and acid testing. CureKT determines the degree of hardening objectively, regardless of personal assessment. Determination directly after the KT-press on the board moving past. Values available to the second. Possibility of ad-hoc reaction, e.g. by adjusting the pressing time or pressure. Non-destructive, optical process. No damaged boards and no loss. No personnel expenses.
APOS CureKT is a NIR-based online system for measuring the curing degree of a finished panel after coating in the KT-press. CureKT replaces sampling, acid tests and subjective assessments of the degree of gloss.
The sensors of CureKT are installed directly after the press and determine the degree of curing on the still warm board, accurate to the second. The user visualization can be done continuously or batch / per board. No acid, no damage to any board. Immediate reaction to faulty production possible; integration with press control possible.
All values are automatically saved with a time stamp. Clear traceability in the event of defects in downstream production. Increase in the pressing cycle possible. Increase the production volume without reducing quality.
APOS CureKT is delivered as a system-as-a-service, i.e. the customer orders the system as a service, APOS delivers it turnkey, commissions it at the customer’s premises and the customer pays a monthly service fee. All-inclusive, i.e. no need to worry about adjustments, maintenance, defects, age-related component replacements. Simply focus on your core business.
