Non-destructive testing solutions and quality assurance for the gypsum/drywall industry

Opti-Gypsum Overview

Miloptic’s unique Opti-Gypsum ultrasonic product line combines our award-winning ultrasonic product with laser thickness measuring technology. The results of combining the two technologies have been outstanding, allowing our customers the ability to evenly distribute gypsum throughout the panel and most importantly along the edges.  Our cross-threaded cylindrical ultrasonic reading channels allow us to place channels against each other to minimize external noise and maximize accuracy. The Opti-Gypsum line of products uses state-of-the-art ultrasonic transducers, with transmitters 10 times more powerful than its predecessor, sophisticated signal processing, that are very interfaceable.

Operating mills that purchased our systems 30+ years ago are still using the same Miloptic technology today.

Our tough-tested ultrasound technology was built to thrive in industrial applications. How tough? In our 40+ years in operation, our equipment frame has never broken, busted, rusted, or sustained damage to halt production.

Laser Thickness Gauge

The 7710’s Laser Thickness Gauge offers precision thickness measurement for continuous on-line size measurement and process control. It can measure nearly any stock coming out of a calendar, extruder, laminator, or press.

The gauge continually verifies that your product conforms to the standards you set.

The system is easily installed with minimal or no production shutdown. The scanning frame wraps around the pass line and does not contact the product during measurement. Thickness variations are identified as they occur. Corrective action can be taken immediately to get tighter production back on track.

A great solution demands simple integration
  • Install our free-standing systems with minimal or no production shut down
  • Simplify inspection with systems that wrap around the pass line and do not require contact with products during the inspection
  • Locate defects automatically for every panel at production speed
  • Enjoy greater flexibility with a system that requires no recalibration to accommodate a broad range of product thicknesses
  • Perform product inspections over the normal and optimal range of speeds
  • Take immediate corrective action to fix problems – dramatically reducing the number of bad sheets produced
  • Readily interface with other peripherals and hosts
  • Adjust tolerance parameters so that the system allows inconsequential defects to pass through
A great business requires product accountability
  • Get the most out of your raw materials by reducing blows, blisters, and bond problems

  • Recognize and protect good and bad trends in your production process

  • React quickly to production process problems by consistently and continuously checking the quality of a product, resulting in higher customer satisfaction and increase profits

  • Generate reports to support better decision-making
    Provide an immediate evaluation of process changes or adjustments

Lease to Own
Leasing our equipment frees up cash for other financial needs of your company. Maybe you have a new contract requiring blow detection, but you do not have the budget to buy new equipment. Our low-cost monthly lease options allow you to take on new business with minimal upfront out-of-pocket cost.

Short-Term Rental
Renting is recommended when equipment is needed for less than 2 years. Benefits include reduced out-of-pocket maintenance cost via included onsite maintenance and refreshes every 6 months.

Proper deployment of your Miloptic equipment is critical. Work with our parent company, Crow Engineering, and their installation and project management experts to ensure success. A skilled Crow engineer will work directly with your team to create a properly engineered and configured ultrasonic/ blow detection environment.



For more than 50 years, Crow Engineering has been designing for the forest and wood products industry. Engineering and design services include: overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) improvement, machine and equipment engineering, and design, machine and equipment layouts, conveyor and transfer engineering and design, and more.

Turnover is expensive – and so is the liability that comes with turning out sub-standard materials. No matter how high-quality your Miloptic equipment is, you must have knowledgeable operators who understand how to use it efficiently. This is why Miloptic offers onsite training. 

  • Understand all Miloptic equipment with comprehensive walkthroughs and pointers on what to look for
  • Recalibrate existing equipment with detailed demonstrations 
  • Adjust sensitivity from ½” to 5” based on use case
  • Properly maintain equipment for greater lifetime value

Ongoing training lays the foundation for optimizing your Miloptic equipment. Training your workforce, after all, directly impacts your facility’s profitability, productivity, safety, liability, and efficacy.


Our basic Preventative Maintenance (PM) plan – best suited for Miloptic systems less than three years old – includes regularly scheduled maintenance, usually 2 to 4 times each year. For newer Miloptic systems, PM services help prevent downtime while keeping equipment in warranty.


Our Preventative Maintenance+ (PM+) plan also includes regularly scheduled maintenance, usually 2 to 4 times each year. The PM+ plan, however, is best suited for Miloptic systems 3 to 10 years old. If a defective part is identified during regularly scheduled maintenance and the technician has the part in hand, we replace the part at no cost to you.
