Express service for loading a submarine cable laying vessel

Storing the exact length of submarine power cables Mission description: Due to the lack of a reliable length measurement for charging and cutting to length from an exact specified submarine cable length, the operational command of the submarine cable displacement vessel decided to request an express service from ELOVIS. The length measuring equipment available on … Weiterlesen …

Measuring the circumference and diameter of tube furnaces in concrete plants

Running ring circumference

The regular inspection of the circumference and thus the diameter of the running rings and the drive rollers of tube furnaces in concrete plants is crucial for planning the replacement of drive components in good time and for targeted maintenance shutdowns before the expensive machine fails unplanned due to errors and have to be shut … Weiterlesen …

MID Length Measurement “calibratable” for textile production

Length measurement “calibratable” acc. to MID 2014/32/EU in textile production Textile fabrics, artificial leather, laminated materials are sold by length and must therefore be measured on calibrated fabric inspection machines according to MID 2014/32/EU. If the goods are difficult to measure due to their stretchability, softness, thickness and structure, the application of non-contact calibrated length … Weiterlesen …

MID Length measurement “calibratable” for cable production

Length measurement “calibratable” acc. to MID 2014/32/EU in cable production Cables are sold by length and must be measured with calibrated length measurement systems if the sale takes place within or into the EU. Larger cable diameters with solid and gripping insulation can be measured up to a certain speed, if necessary, still well by … Weiterlesen …

Differential length measurement in foil and film processing

Where do the discrepancies between purchase length and sales length come from? Films are purchased as roll products, processed and sold again as roll products. However, there are often differences between the length of purchased materials and the length of finished products. The reasons for this are manifold. Analyzing them is the key to increasing … Weiterlesen …

Headbox in Under- or Over-Stow

Under- or Over-Stow? Measurement technology for the paper industry … Every papermaker works with the jet-screen ratio to influence significant quality parameters of the paper. Among others, these are: the longitudinal/cross ratio, the formation, the tensile stiffness orientation and thus also strength properties such as the flat crush resistance, the strip crush resistance or the … Weiterlesen …

µSPEED to Measure Lacquer Foil

Lacquer Foil

The task was to measure high-gloss black lacquer foil, metallized foil and immediately afterwards a highly transparent foil correctly to length. Brilliantly solved with the ELOVIS laser encoder µSPEED. The result: 1 % overproduction avoided. That is 600 running meters x 2 m web width per production day – equivalent to 1200 m² per day. … Weiterlesen …

Measurement of Speed Differences in the Headbox of a Paper Machine

The paper quality is often already determined in the headbox of a paper machine. The appropriate ratio between wire speed and jet beam velocity must be maintained, but the pulp jet velocity should be as homogeneous as possible within the headbox. Therefore, there should be no or only very small speed differences. It is not easy to ensure this and it is not possible to check speed differences with tactile measuring equipment. µSPEED laser encoder systems work contactless and are even suitable for this measuring application, so for measuring differences between paper wire and stock steel or within the headbox. Therefore µSPEED systems are an important tool for trouble shooting in paper production!

CMI CZ issues MID approval for μSPEED cable length measuring machine

The Czech Institute for Metrology CMI has recently granted MID 2014/32 / EU approval for a cable measuring machine based on the laser encoder μSPEED-PRO and the counter MID-COUNTER. The cable length measuring machine is designed for cable diameters from 8mm to 60mm. The length measuring machine is part of a cable rewinder from Cabmat.

SLM System measures precision tubes up to 2m

Weerth-Handling-Systeme GmbH has developed a machine for chip-free and burr-free cutting of precision tubes with diameters from 8 mm to 60 mm and lengths from 70 mm to 2,000 mm. For self-monitoring purposes, the machine is equipped with the SLM length-section light scanner for discrete part length measurement. As the tubes pass through, they are … Weiterlesen …
