Cut-to-length Control

Define target length and cut and assemble accurately

Do you avoid length additions or do you deliver excess length just to be safe? Do you have the strict requirement to deliver exactly the right length? … When reaching the target length, a cut should be triggered by the cut-to-length control. While doing so, the target length should be hit very precisely. Length additions cost a fortune in the long term and should therefore be avoided. Length additions can also be unwanted, to avoid expensive reworking steps. Achieving the precise target length requires a reliable, permanently accurate length measurement of all goods. Contact based tactile measurement instruments are exposed to wear and contamination. At high accelerations, tactile measuring equipment is exposed to slippage. Non-contact length measurement systems from ELOVIS which are used for cut-to-length control, deliver target lengths with consistently high accuracy.
