Pipe & Tube
Manufacturers of pipe and tube require the accurate length measurement of products. Accurate length measurements control cutting systems that produce products to exact production and customer size specifications. Accurate length measurements also enable manufacturers to properly position pipe and tubes to mark them with important product information. However, many manufacturers still use mechanical contact encoders to perform these measurements not realizing they are getting 1% or greater accuracy at best due to slippage and mechanical issues. Length discrepancies can directly affect product quality and create waste, costing the manufacturer significantly.
LaserSpeed offers the accuracy advantage
The LaserSpeed non-contact encoder directly measures the length and speed of pipe and tube products with better than ±0.03% accuracy, 0.02% repeatability. It is the ideal solution for replacing your mechanical contact encoders that are prone to a variety of measurement errors and high maintenance costs. LaserSpeed is a proven performer in:
- Continuous length measurement
- Speed measurement
- Discrete product measurement
- Differential speed control
- Cut-to-length control
- Product positioning for marking/printing
- And more...
