ELOVIS Measurement Solutions for Extursion Industry

ELOVIS offers special measuring solutions for the extrusion industry. Measuring tasks for line optimization, for cut control and for remeasuring profile piece lengths and profile geometries (height and width) are covered. µSPEED laser encoders are used for speed and length measurement tasks as well as for cut control. Also used are SLM longitudinal light sensors for precise length measurement on cut pieces and the µVIS-3D system for geometry monitoring. Some typical examples of measurement solutions in the paper industry are listed here.
