European Coating Journal publishes a reflexion on how monitoring can accelerate innovation and improve production efficientcy in the fields of thin films, coatings and surface functionalization

  Optical systems to support the production of surfaces with advanced functionalities Enhanced product performance through fine surface functionalisation requires process control beyond standard metrological practice. One of the first steps to digitalisation and Industry 4.0, is inline monitoring using in-process sensors. In line with the progresses of photonic technologies, novel systems have proven effective […]
