BST ProControl - Weight and coating thickness control

BETACONTROL and PROTAGON became BST ProControl! In-line weight, thickness, temperature, ashes and moisture measurement

Thickness measurement and weight measurement

BST ProControl provides a unique portfolio for the quality control of flat web material ensuring100 percent reliability.

BST ProControl came about as a result of the merger between Betacontrol GmbH and PROTAGON Process Technologies GmbH.

Betacontrol provides state-of-the-art solutions for optimizing production and measuring flat webmaterial, including thickness and weight. Protagon are experts in measuring and control techniques for paper and coating processes.

BST ProControl covers an outstanding range of products for material control within theproduction process, including plastic and metal foils, nonwoven substrates, technical cloths, foamed material, floor coverings and paper. BST ProControl is fully committed to enhancing the effectiveness of your production processes, for instance by
