Speed Synchronization, System Control / Regulation

Haul-off control, cutting, pressure control, drive and tension control

Detect speed of moving surfaces to synchronize aggregates and control and regulate equipment. … The synchronization of several drives as well as the control of saws, printers and camera inspection / reading systems are application examples. Due to high machine speeds, tactile measurement systems often do not provide adequate measurement accuracy and accordingly this results in production and processing errors. Sensors are required that measure accurately on all surfaces, textures and colors, regardless of whether the sample is thick, thin, firm, soft, dry or damp, smooth or rough. These sensors are used in laminators and laminating machines for speed synchronization in package and letter machines for the control of reading systems and, for example, in tenter frames for controlling the advance speed of the product feed.

Typical Measurement Materials:

  • Paper, Cardboard, Tissue, …
  • Film, foil, plastic packaging
  • Textiles, carpets, nonwoven, nonwoven fabric
  • webs, sheets, foils of metal
  • Cable, wire, rope
  • Profiles, hoses, strands
  • Wood, MDF, HDF, plasterboard, …

Typical machines with measurement problems:

  • laminating, laminating machines
  • Flying scissors and saws
  • Sheeter
  • Printing machines
  • Laser and inkjet printers
  • Machines with several drives
  • Inspection Systems
