Web Length and Width Measurement

Widths of web, tape and other rolled goods are usually measured by hand in random samples, because touching measuring...

Dimensional control for length, width, height, angularity – traditionally tactile:

  • Meter stick, caliper, tape measure
  • Measuring stop with steel ruler
  • Manual sampling

Measurement problems with traditional measuring equipment:

  • Material movement too fast (henceforth only random checks)
  • Measurement and measurement accuracy depending on the operator
  • Errors by visual reading and manually entering the results in lists

Consequences of measurement problems:

  • High staff costs
  • Operator-dependent measurement spread
  • Complaints due to width / height error
  • Dimensional additions to avoid complaints
  • Big effort through manual sample testing after  error message
  • Big effort in post-processing of parts
  • Lack of traceability

ELOVIS measurement solutions for non-contact control of length, width, height, angularity, … by combining individual sensors:

  • Length measurement → SLM
  • Width, height and diameter measuring system → BDM
  • Light grid, cross light grid, light curtain, transmitted light measuring grid, optical caliper, automation light grid → BDM, SLM
  • Vision sensor, camera system, matrix and line scan camera → μVIS

Measurement advantages with non-contact ELOVIS measuring equipment:

  • Wear-free, maintenance-free, permanently accurate ⇒ no maintenance costs, minimum operating costs
  • Self-monitoring ⇒ Warning in case of defect
  • Suitable for high product speeds ⇒ prepared for the future
  • Material-independent measurement ⇒ Measuring principle largely eliminates the influence of material variation
  • Long life LED components ⇒ Long measuring system life
  • Measurement of all parts ⇒ 100% documentation and traceability of measurement results
  • Traceable, calibratable, conformity assessable ⇒ legal certainty
Combined measurement of length, width, height, diameter, angularity, parallelism, ... with contactless ELOVIS sensors:

Dimensional control in the pass at high goods speed. This error message when exceeding the tolerance or parts sorting / guaranteed 100% goods delivery. Also intervention in machine regulations for error prevention
