Placing the non-contact laser encoder at two different measurement points accurately monitors the differential speed.

The Future for Converters Looks Laser Bright

Converters across a spectrum of manufacturing sectors now have a high-precision measurement solution for their production needs.  The advantages of non-contact laser length and speed measurement have been proven on all types of applications including continuous length, cut control and speed control. This advanced and affordable technology eliminates the measurement errors associated with contact wheel tachometers and drive systems as a result of slippage and mechanical wear.  Non-contact laser measurement gives converters the competitive edge, enabling them to control product quality while realizing significant production savings.
