At Interwire 2019, CERSA-MCI presented its solution to monitor diameter and also detect short defects for high speed extrusion lines. The LPS-3-H is designed to measure tubes, cables and wires from 0.3mm to 5mm (12 to 200 mils). Its measurement principle is based on the laser projection (shadow). 3 axis laser beam measurement ensure a full coverage of the surface. Several competitive advantages : comparing to scanning principle (rotating mirrors), our measurements are position and vibration independent; no averaging is required. As a result, LPS-3-H gauges are more reliable than competition.
With its fast measurement rate : 20 000 Hz (measurements per axis), LPS-3-H can detect any short evolutions/changes of the diameter. More or less 10 times faster than other devices available ! Thus, a short defect as lump or neckdown can be detected. For example : at 300m/min, LPS-3-H will detect a lump of 250µm length.
Traditionally, customers have to buy two gauges : one for diameter control and one for flaw detection. Finally, its dual features of diameter monitoring and defect detection makes it an all-in-one product !
Many companies have expressed an interest in our measuring equipment. New opportunities are now opening up for CERSA on American market.
