LaserSpeed non-contact encoder enables manufacturers involved in web coating and finishing to measure product length and speed with the highest accuracy
Beta LaserMike, a leading global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, will be giving a technical paper presentation entitled “Non-Contact, Laser-Based Technology for Accurately Measuring the Length and Speed of Product in Web Coating and Lamination” at the upcoming 2011 AIMCAL Web Coating Conference. The conference is located at the Peppermill Resort in Reno, Nevada and runs from October 23rd through the 26th.
The presentation will be given by Stuart Manser, Western District Manager for Beta LaserMike, and will focus on the importance of accurately measuring the product length and speed during web coating, lamination, and finishing operations. Mr. Manser will provide an inside look at the LaserSpeed® non-contact length and speed encoder and compare it against contact-type measurement methods. He will also illustrate a few case studies to show how some companies have used this technology to solve challenging product length and speed problems.
The LaserSpeed system from Beta LaserMike uses advanced, laser-based technology to precisely measure the length and speed of product during production without making contact with the moving goods. This laser encoder projects a unique pattern on the surface of the product. As the product moves, light is scattered back to the LaserSpeed unit. This information is translated into product speed and pulses are produced to determine the product length. Length and speed measurements are captured with better than +0.05% accuracy. Beta LaserMike offers a complete line of LaserSpeed encoders with measurement speeds up to 39,400 ft/min (12,000 m/min), standoff distances to 39.4 in (1000 mm), and measurement depth of field to 3.0 in (100 mm).
