Calibration of Speedometers

Fast and safe to use – highly accurate at top speed

Is your machine regulation based on a theoretical determination of velocities? How can risk-free speedometer calibration be carried out at high machine speed? … The ELOVIS μSPEED, equipped with an optical adjustment device, can measure speeds of moving surfaces from a safe distance but still with high precision. The calibration of tactile speedometers is one application. The troubleshooting for identifying drives with slippage, wrong roll diameters and the determination of so far theoretically calculated speed values are further applications.

Typical production materials requiring speedometer calibration:

  • Paper, Cardboard, Tissue, …
  • Film, foil, plastic packaging
  • Textiles, carpets, nonwoven, nonwoven fabric
  • webs, sheets, foils of metal
  • Cable, wire, rope
  • Profiles, hoses, strands
  • Measurements ice, snow, guides
  • Measurements on pavement, rails

Typical machines / plants / devices with measurement problems:

  • Roll cutter, cross cutter
  • Winding machines, rewinders
  • Scissor Lines, Saws, Flying Saws
  • calendering machines
  • laminating machines
  • Rolling machines, rolling stands
  • sports equipment, rides
  • Road and rail vehicles
