In-line leather thickness detection system
GER Elettronica systems designed for the shaving phase are the key tool for measuring thicknesses after this processing phase, ensuring the maximum automated precision with zero margin of error.
The shaving of hides has the purpose of reducing and uniforming the thickness along the entire surface: the process takes place in the shaving machine, which removes part of the leathers’ flesh side, making them smoother and softer.
As the shaving phase can be performed both manually and mechanically, for tanneries it’s crucial to ensure a thickness measurement process that is as precise and absolute as possible, avoiding potentially critical human errors.
The technology for controlling the leather shaving process has evolved: today, the detection of the thickness in the shaving phase takes place in automated machines, in order to ensure the total uniformity of the leather surface.
GER Elettronica solutions for leather shaving are able to treat hides of different sizes and thicknesses, mapping and tracing each single lot through software, with the aim of reducing working times and increasing productivity in the tannery.
