Maximum miniaturisation in coating thickness measurement

OptiSense is the world's leading provider of photothermal measuring systems for coating thicknesses on a wide variety of substrates. Our innovative PaintChecker solutions include industrial test systems, mobile measuring devices and numerous related services.

Since the PaintChecker sensors are developed and manufactured in-house – made in Germany –, we can also offer you tailor-made solutions for the most unusual applications.

All good things ...

come in threes. Our OptiSense portfolio proves that the best things usually come in threes. Whether industrial test systems, mobile measurement devices or services, our solutions are guaranteed to get to grips with any measurement task, no matter how demanding.

The road to the perfect surface

Whether optics, haptics, resource efficiency or safety aspects such as corrosion protection and UV resistance - coating thickness plays a decisive role in all these requirements for a perfect surface.

OptiSense demonstrates how you can inspect surfaces contact-free, fully automatical and accurate early in the process using various coating examples (clear coat, enamel, powder and UV coating on a wide variety of substrates). In continuous industrial use, the solutions simultaneously inspect several critical points - atline, inline or online. In addition, the systems can be easily integrated into existing coating lines.

OptiSense live presentation at the ZVO-Oberflächentage in Berlin on September 15, 2023

The top-class forum of the ZVO-Oberflächentage is the central point of contact for knowledge transfer and exchange of experience. This year, the industry event will take place in Berlin at a new location: the Mercure Hotel MOA.

The presentation program, which features a total of 90 papers, focuses on climate neutrality and energy and resource efficiency. On Friday, September 15 at 9:40 a.m. Jörg Mülleneisen, OptiSense, will talk about resource efficiency in coating: coating thickness measurement as a profitable adjusting screw.


Testing coating thickness in pipes

Measuring on edges, bends, rough surfaces, on the inside of pipes and especially in containers is a particular challenge. Our expert consultants will be happy to tell you how this can be done really well.

Aircraft painting: precision landing in coating thickness measurement

According to projections, innovative, micrometre-precise paint finishes alone can save around 20 per cent of coating material in aviation. And the lighter a machine is, the less fuel it consumes, the better its CO2 balance.

No wonder that optimal coating has become a competitive factor in terms of savings and sustainability. OptiSense impressively demonstrates this by testing the coating application at its aviation customers. Learn more in the presentation during IntAirCoat on 6 June in Seville (Spain).


The OptiSense team wishes you a colorful Easter!

If you just want to "browse" a bit over Easter, we have something for you: The OptiSense Easter story. You will learn how the Easter Bunny manages to create such brilliant colors on his eggs. With this in mind, we wish you many colorfully painted Easter eggs and relaxed days under the sign of the (Easter) bunny.

Big success: European Coating Show 2023

The European Coating Show brought OptiSense many exciting inquiries about contactless coating thickness measurement. The inline-optimized PaintChecker Industrial testing system with its miniaturized, lightweight sensors attracted a lot of interest. Another highlight was the limited edition of the mobile handheld measuring device on the occasion of the company's 25th anniversary. The relaxed joy on the last day of the fair can be seen in the OptiSense team.

Thanks to all! OptiSense ranked first

We are excited! Because we take the 1st place in the overall ranking for the best cover picture 2022 in the trade magazine JOT. In the winning photo, our PaintChecker Mobile is checking the coating thickness on a rim - with its small measuring spot, it can check even the tightest corners and sharpest edges.

We would like to thank all JOT readers who voted for us for this great result!

The blue coating thickness miracle

The exclusive special colour has been decided: the PaintChecker Mobile is now available in royal Metallic Blue as a Limited Edition. Our customers and fans could vote for their favourite. In keeping with the motto "Go blue", the PaintChecker in Metallic Ocean Blue was finally chosen. Now the mobile testing device is going into production and will be available in the highlight colour from May.

ESC 23: New solutions and a true world premiere
