This article discusses some of the coating-process digitization opportunities created by real-time measurement of coating-thickness measurement data, especially by using a precise and absolute thickness-measurement technology known as ruggedized optical interference (ROI) technology. To remain competitive in a rapidly changing and evolving coated-product manufacturing industry, organizations must explore ways to digitalize and transform their processes to be more efficient and more automated. The retirement of an aging workforce creates a significant void for an inexperienced workforce to fill, and as such there is an increasing need to automate entire manufacturing processes. Availability of real-time, high-speed data is critical for automating various manufacturing methods and steps.
