Width and thickness for narrow web/strap

non-contact width measurement and thickness measurement for strips

Narrow strips are to be checked for compliance with a defined width and thickness. Width and thickness errors that already exist in production can no longer be eliminated afterwards. It is therefore important to detect deviations at an early stage – in principle already when the strips are still within the tolerance range but have exceeded a warning range. The TLS cross section light scanner is used for non-contact, maintenance-free and permanently accurate measurement.

Typical application data:

  • Measurement of strip/web/belt/tape/ribbon widths during production and in the context of quality assurance
  • Measurement of strip/web/belt/tape thickness during production and in the context of quality assuranceMeasurement of widths up to approx. 90 mm, larger widths possible by sensor cascading
  • Production speeds: typically 100 m/min
  • Problem with contacting measuring devices: only random sample control possible, personnel dependency
  • Measuring accuracy with non-contact strip/web/belt/tape/ribbon width/thickness measurement: typically 0.01 mm
  • amortization: approx. 3 months
  • Integration of the measuring system into the existing plant technology

Material examples:

  • plastic tape/web/belt polypropylene tape
  • foil tapes/web/belt, film web
  • Metal strips, slit strip
  • Flat wire, round wire, profile wire

Machines which are equipped with non-contact cross-section measurement:

  • Extrusion lines
  • Rolling mills
  • Winding machines
  • Embossing machines
