Many applications involving the production of long, continuous cylindrical products pose measurement challenges. Products that cannot be well-guided, move off-axis and move out of the measurement range make it difficult for traditional Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) gauges to keep the laser on the product's surface. This results in hard-to-obtain and unreliable length and speed measurements.
NDCs new LaserSpeed Pro M Series gauge from the BETA LaserMike products family solves this problem. Unlike anything on the marketplace today, the patent-pending LaserSpeed Pro M Series gauge uses a revolutionary LDV optical technique to provide the most reliable, robust length and speed measurements of small, bouncing and unguided cylindrical moving products. From bare conductor wire...to insulated primary wire...to cable, the LaserSpeed M Series gauge enables manufacturers to effectively control product speed and process functions in the most challenging applications. Manufacturers benefit significantly by reducing product give-away, minimizing scrap, avoiding loss in productivity and downtime, and realizing other savings.
Attendees will also get a first-hand look at a complete measurement and control system for cable extrusion lines with BETA LaserMike gauges in place from the extruder through the puller station. “We want to demonstrate that by implementing highly accurate gauging along the critical points in the cable extrusion process, manufacturers can significantly improve product quality, increase productivity and realize manufacturing savings to successfully grow their business,” says Jay Luis, Global Marketing Communications Manager at NDC Technologies.
