Speed & Length Measurement

Non-contact measurement of production line speed and product length.

  • Long stand-off distance gauges are suitable for non-contact speed and length measurement of red-hot metal products (optional hot-object filter required for products hotter than 600°C).
  • Optional harsh environment enclosures available to provide impact protection, high temperature shielding, air purge and air and/or water cooling depending on the application requirements.
  • Line speed control on extrusion or forming lines.
  • Differential speed control using a pair of gauges (for hot or cold sequential rolling mills).
  • Product length measurement.
  • Control of cutters.
  • Cut length inspection.
