Scantron, a non-contact laser measuring equipment firm, has announced that its Masterspeed range of non-contact laser Doppler gauges have been upgraded with to include in zero-speed sensing

According to the firm, they automatically detect direction and take highly accurate speed and length measurements of paper or plastic, even if the line stops or goes into reverse.

Scantron said that this reduces scrap, increases uptime and improves material yield. It also eliminates product give away and short length claims, thus saving time and money.

The firm said that the gauge is permanently calibrated and only requires minimal operator input. With stand-off distances ranging from 150mm up to 2.5m, plus an extended depth of field of up to 60mm, just about any size of product can be accommodated and measured accurately on-line.

In a statement, the firm added: “All systems in the Masterspeed range are direct replacements for the traditional contact wheel and roller-type devices. They are completely non-contact, so there is no marking or slippage, and no wear or contamination of a wheel. What’s more, they are extremely easy to install, integrate and use.”
