Controlling the length and speed of product during continuous and semi-continuous extrusion processes is critically important to producing quality results. Speed fluctuations directly affect the elongation, surface finishing, and hardening of material. Defects can manifest themselves as surface cracking, internal cracking, piping effect, and surface lines. Obtaining accurate length measurements is also important to controlling cutting operations because it ensures materials are produced to specific product size requirements.
LaserSpeed Pro offers significant advantages over contact methods
While mechanical contact encoders can provide length and speed measurement capabilities, they do it with a low level of accuracy. These devices are subject to slippage and calibration changes caused by variations in the diameter of the measurement wheel due to dirt build-up and wear. These problems can affect your product quality and bottom line. The LaserSpeed Pro non-contact encoder directly measures the surface of your moving product with better than ±0.03% accuracy. You get the highest precision length and speed measurements for applications such as:
- Continuous length
- Speed control
- Elongation control
LaserSpeed Pro gives you applications versatility and productivity savings
Whether you perform cold, warm, or hot extrusion processes, LaserSpeed Pro works on all products regardless of shape, color, or texture. You can use LaserSpeed Pro to measure the extrusion of metals, polymers, ceramics, concrete, and foodstuffs. If youre looking to realize real productivity gains and cost savings, its time you start using LaserSpeed Pro today.
