Non-Contact Length Measurement

Roll Length, Cut-to-Length Control, Calibrated MID and Portable Length Measurement, Print Control, Pattern Repeat Length Measurement, …

With its non-contact gauges for length measurement, ELOVIS replaces measuring wheels and drive-based or measuring roll-based measurement solutions. ELOVIS gauges are mounted at a safe distance to the transport conveyor and measure the length of the passing material surface. The sensors are used for measuring roll lengths, winding lengths and coil lengths, as well as for cutting or cut-to-length control. The gauges measure webs, ribbons and stranded or spooled goods as well as goods in pieces made of a wide variety of materials. ELOVIS also offers calibratable length measuring systems in accordance with the European Measuring Instruments Directive MID 2014/32/EU. Non-contact length measurement offers significant accuracy and application advantages over conventional measurement methods in mobile, tripod-based measurement, encoder calibration and in the measurement of elongation and shrinkage of goods. Several thousand successful installations speak for themselves: “Non-Contact Length Measurement – by the laser-encoder gauges of the μSPEED series from ELOVIS – is user-friendly, handy, robust, reliable and permanently accurate”.
