The TCM - Thickness Control Module is a fully integrated application that allows to control the thickness of leather in real time, with the ultimate goal of managing and controlling quality parameters during the process.
Each measuring station consists of a digital gauge with a wireless transmitter and a receiver connected to a PC.
It is also possible to attach a TV monitor in front of the operators so they can check their work in real time, allowing for immediate corrective measures in case of deviations from the set parameters.
The incoming data is automatically registered in the system as it is being generated.
The visualization is easy and intuitive, the use of different colors indicate if the thickness is inside, above or below the preset parameters.
This information is immediately available to generate management reports or as a process quality certification document.

TCM - for each lot a hide map shows
the control points the customer wants,
and a thickness interval is specified.
If the measured thickness is inside
those parameters the the location box
will remain white, if the thickness is
below it will turn to red, and if it is
above it will turn green.
The color system eliminates having to read numbers. At a glance it will be possible to control the thicknesses obtained.
Gauging follows a set sequence so that the system knows the location on the hide of each thickness point - belly (left / right) shoulder croupon etc.
Dynamic graphs show the percentage below / above and correct thicknesses per each selected area as well as of the whole lot allowing for immediate immediate corrective measures.
TCM thickness data of every hide is
stored for future reporting and analysis.
Graphs are customized to customer
The TCM can monitor dynamic thickness on continuous transport belts and interpolate data capture at specific set distance points
