Non-contact width, height, diameter measurement of profiles

measurement during material movement, cross to the feeding direction

Do you measure the widths and heights of profiles in random samples, because optical micrometers can only cope with perfect material guidance, or because permanently contact measurement systems affect your material? … Generally, in the production of profiles, pipes and hoses a random sample inspection of the main dimensions width, height or diameter happens in the setup process. The material produced in the meantime moves into the rejects. In the current production process, the dimensions can only be checked to a limited extent with previous measurement devices. After the production is finished samples can be taken and measures can be checked. If there are deviations from the nominal dimension, the entire batch is declared as waste. … The solution is the non-contact cross-section light scanner, which works properly despite limited material guidance, for example in case of transverse and diagonal movements as well as material sag. The measurement is used for production control or for the error message when the tolerance is exceeded as well as for the documentation of the delivery quality. µMETER_X cross-section light sensors are used to measure the width, height and diameter of profiles, tubes, hoses, bolts, bars, beams and rods made of various materials.
