Dametric’s history

1976 Datek Industrielektronik was founded with Bengt Åkerblom as one of the co-partners.

1979 Datek Industrielektronik received a patent for a disc clearance sensor intended for refiners, the TDC sensor (True Disc Clearance). The inventor was Bengt Åkerblom.

1982 Bengt Åkerblom founded D/A Production after a separation from Datek Industrielektronik. The largest customer was Sunds Defibrator, which later became Metso Paper (now called Valmet).

1985 D/A Production moved to its own establishment at Kungens Kurva, right outside Stockholm.
1993 the RMS (Refiner Monitoring System) was developed.

1999 the WDS (Weighing Data System) was developed in collaboration with our previous partner PIAB Sweden.

2001 the TMS (Thickness Monitoring System) was produced for our previous customer SSAB. The system measures the coating thickness on-line on steel coils.

2002 the GMS (Gap Monitoring System) was developed, a further development of the RMS system.

2003 the AGS (Adjustable Gap Sensor) was developed, an on-line self-calibrating TDC sensor.
2005 D/A Production changed its name to Dametric, and expanded the premises at Kungens Kurva with an engineering workshop.
2008 the WDS-DS was developed, an arm reader that registers RFID tags.

2014 the service panel was developed.

2014 the Plus sensor (also called TDC+) was developed, a further development of the TDC sensor.

2017 the WDS-DC4 was developed, a connected RFID system.
2018 the WDS-DS5BT was developed, a further development of the WDS-DS arm reader.

2018 the CPM was developed, a system for conductance profile measurement.

2020 the subsidiary Dynapond was started for the sale of scales and measuring systems.

2020 Bengt Åkerblom won the Arne Asplund Mechanical Pulping Award.

2021 the GMU was developed, a system that is specially produced to update and future-proof both existing RMS systems and also completely new refiner installations.

2022 Dynapond’s dynamic scale for garbage trucks became certified according to the MID directive.
