Wire / Cable
Wire and cable manufacturers face a number of production challenges based around productivity and quality. The goal is to ensure optimum efficiency from the equipment and people that operate the plant. A key to making this happen is the ability to accurately measure the length and speed of products during production. But if you’re using mechanical contact encoders to perform these measurements, you’re probably getting 1% or greater accuracy at best. This means you’re throwing away money due to waste, maintenance, or product give-away.
LaserSpeed delivers the highest accuracy and savings
LaserSpeed uses advanced laser-based technology to perform measurements without contacting your wire and cable products. You avoid those costly measurement inaccuracies caused by slippage, dirt build-up, and day-to-day wear from mechanical contact encoders. You get ±0.03% accuracy and 0.02% reliability in applications such as:
- Continuous length measurement at take-up reels
- Cut-to-length control
- Differential speed regulation
- Product positioning
- Marking/printing on products
- And more…
