Non-contact measurement of velocity and length in paper, cardboard and packaging production

Precise, reliable and non-destructive length and velocity measurement is of the utmost importance when it comes to manufacturing and processing in the paper industry. Even the smallest deviation can cause added material costs, and these can quickly add up. That is why high-precision non-contact measuring processes are of the greatest importance.

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 measuring technique works on almost all surfaces and rules out any chance of damage being caused by measuring devices. From precision position monitoring in printing processes right through to cutting length control for packaging materials – Polytec systems ensure that you obtain the perfect configuration for every application.
