Length Measurement of window profiles

Non-contact final measurement of window profile lengths before packaging

Window profiles with lengths between 2.5 m and 7 m should be cut as precisely as possible and checked directly after the cutting. To do so, an inline non-contact length measurement directly after the saw is of great advantage. Both compliance with customer tolerances and the avoidance of rejects or length post-processing are targeted. The two-parted length-section light scanner SLM/2 covers the entire measuring range of up to 4.5 m in between the shortest and the longest part, without having to be repositioned, changed or parameterized. With SLM/2 length-section light scanners, window profiles made of plastic, aluminum or wood are measured lengthwise without contact, precisely and maintenance-free.

Typical Application Data:

  • Measurement of profiles after cutting, before packaging
  • Production speeds: typically up to 80 m / min
  • Problem with contact measuring devices: only sample inspection possible, accuracy: +/- 1mm/m
  • Measurement accuracy with non-contact length measurement SLM: typically 0.1mm / m
  • Amortization: 1 month, integration of the measuring system into the existing conveyor system

Material examples:

  • Extruded profiles of hard and soft plastic as well as co-extrusion and tri-extrusion
  • Materials: PVC, ABS, PP, PC, PMMA, ASA and TPU
  • Products: window profiles, pipes, hoses, corrugated pipes, sealing profiles, …

Machines equipped with non-contact profile length measurement:

  • Guillotine, cross cutter, cross divider, cutting machine
  • Saw line, flying saw, continuous saw, punch
  • Packaging lines, sorting lines, QS stations
