Precise detection of velocity and length on wood and construction materials

Precise, reliable and non-destructive length and velocity measurement is of the utmost importance when it comes to efficient manufacturing and processing in the wood and construction materials industry. Even the slightest deviations can cause added material costs, and these can quickly add up. For that reason high-precision, non-contact measurement techniques are indispensable.

Polytec's laser surface velocimeters (LSVs) have been specially designed for high-precision velocity and length measurement. These LSVs provide you with reliable measurement data that you can easily integrate into your process control systems. Using an LSV means increasing precision and thereby increasing the quantity and quality of your output. Your advantages: Polytec's non-contact measurement technique works on almost all surfaces without causing any damage. From cutting length control in glass wool right through to length measurement for roofing materials – Polytec systems ensure that you obtain the perfect configuration for every application.
