Significant losses of usable cutting 
area can occur if splitting and 
shaving operations are not closely monitored and controlled.*
With Wireless Thickness Gauging 
from bService, you can maximize usable cutting area and increase your bottom line.

According to CSIRO*, the use of digital gauges and software to produce thickness maps can result in increased yield through:

  • More precise splitting
  • Splitting closer to the thickness required for the finished leather and hence increasing drop split weight
  • A reduction in the amount of shaving required

In addition, analysis of thickness data can be used to create reports, graphs, and trend forecasts.

A major advance in thickness measurement, Wireless Thickness Gauging from bService combines wireless digital technology with powerful software to produce real time hide thickness maps quickly, easily and automatically. This information provides instant feedback to machine operators, enabling them to make immediate adjustments to optimize performance, maintain consistency and maximize yield.


Once collected, thickness measurements are stored in a central database, and can be used to:

  • create reports
  • create charts and graphs
  • analyze trends


By using the system to inspect incoming and outgoing product, you can ensure vendor accountability and delight customers. With accurate measurements and comprehensive reporting tools, see thickness statistics over sections, whole hides, pallets, lots, truckloads, entire inventories or even entire enterprises. View compliance over time to keep your Vendors accountable and avoid paying for product that doesn’t meet your requirements. By confirming the quality of your product with the same information, your customers will feel assured they’re getting excellent value for their money. They’ll also find it an excellent reason to buy from you rather than your competition.

Thickness data can be made available over the Internet, allowing access from anywhere in the world. In addition, gauging operations can be viewed over the Internet, in real time, as they take place. This allows management to 
maintain operator accountability.
