Indev-ACT, a supplier of web gauging equipment, has introduced its ShingleMaster® System that is designed to improve productivity, quality, and bottom-line results for the roofing industries. Indev-ACT has continuously invested in state-of-the art measurement and control technologies. They offer a comprehensive measurement and control portfolio and set new standards for quality, reliability, precision, control, and service.
Roofing lines represent one of the most hostile environments for a web gauging system to operate in. Extreme temperatures and adhesive contamination represent major environmental challenges. Such systems often cannot be accessed or serviced while the line is running, yet are expected to perform with 100% availability. Indev-ACT’s extensive process knowledge and systems experience with this application has resulted in the ShingleMaster becoming the roofing industry’s preferred web gauging system.
Indev-Act’s extensive sensor portfolio can measure a wide range of important roofing material properties such as porosity, fiberglass mat thickness, felt thickness, and paper moisture. Indev-ACT’s unique multi-sensor head configuration allows same-spot quality measurements from different process locations for comprehensive product optimization. The ShingleMaster system is a truly scalable platform that allows the customer to configure an optimum measurement and control solution that delivers increased yield and quality while reducing scrap. Indev-ACT can offer many building products solutions from its extensive applications library for shingles, felt, rubber, fiberglass, and foam insulation.
