The LaserSpeed non-contact encoder enables flexible packaging manufacturers to accurately and consistently measure the length and speed of products during production to control stretch and draw. LaserSpeed uses advanced, laser-based technology to perform measurements without contacting the product. This eliminates measurement inaccuracies caused by slippage or other mechanical contact issues from rotary-type encoders. LaserSpeed measurements are captured with better than +0.05 percent accuracy, +/-0.02 percent repeatability. LaserSpeed is available with measurement speeds up to 39,400 feet/minute, standoff distances to 39.4 inches and measurement depth of field to 3 inches.
