Length & Speed Measurement

Non-Contact, Laser Precision Delivers Significant Quality, Productivity and Savings Benefits

Manufacturers across a range of industries require the accurate length and speed measurements of products.  Accurate length and speed measurements are used to perform a number of process functions such as:

  • Continuous length measurement
  • Speed measurement
  • Differential speed control
  • Cut-to-length control
  • Product positioning
  • Printing and coating application control
  • To name a few..

However, many manufacturers still use mechanical contact encoders to perform these measurements not realizing they are getting 1% or greater accuracy at best due to slippage and mechanical issues. Length discrepancies can directly affect product quality and create waste, costing the manufacturer significantly.

The BETA LaserMike LaserSpeed Pro gauge measures the length and speed of any moving surface with better than ±0.03% accuracy and without ever contacting the product. The new LaserSpeed Pro M Series gauge measures small, unguided and positionally moving cylindrical products with the highest repeatable accuracy. These gauges are proven performers in a wide range of industrial applications. As a result of the higher measurement accuracy and tighter process control, manufacturers are realizing a number of significant production efficiencies and savings.
