Optical measurement in cable and wire production processes

Precise, reliable and non-destructive length and velocity measurement is of the utmost importance when it comes to efficient manufacturing and processing in the cable and wire industry. The slightest deviations can cause added material costs, which can quickly add up. That is why high-precision non-contact measuring processes are essential.

Laser length and speed sensors, also called laser surface velocimeters (LSV) have specially been designed for accurate and reliable lenght and speed measurement in production processs. LSVs provide reliable measurement data that you can easily integrate into your process control systems. Using LSV means increased precision and thereby increased quantity and quality of your output. Polytec's non-contact measuring technique works on almost any surface and avoids damaging the produced good. From precision length measurement when winding cables right through to velocity measurement in coating processes for fiber optic cables – Polytec systems ensure that you obtain the perfect configuration for every application.
