Inline 3 axis wire diameter measurements : what's it for?
CERSA has launched the LPS range of instruments dedicated to the measurement of extruded wires. The LPS uses shadow technology to measure the diameter of wires/cables/tubes during production. Due its very high measuring speed (20,000 measurements/second), the LPS is able to play the role of a geometric defect detector (lumps and neckdowns) with 3 independent axes spaced apart by 120°. In fact, it is an all-in-one system, unlike what is commonly found in competitor’s instruments. The LPS is able to detect very small defects even on high-speed lines!
LPS has several inputs-outputs (analog and digital) for communicating with a PC or PLC.
- Extrusion process
Type of wires :
- Steel cords
- Any insulated fine cables (plastic, rubber, PTFE etc.)
Instruments making up this solution
LPS005-3-H: 3 axis measurement
High-speed diameter measurement for tubes, cables, wires.Its measurement principle is based on the laser projection (shadow), position and vibration independent. No averaging required.All-in-one device : diameter, ovality measurement + lump & neckdown detection. 3 axes and 20 000 measurements per second / per axis !
Our software solution for Inline 3 axis diameter measurements
CIM PROD software
Our advanced CIM PROD PC software is a complete production quality management tool for technicians. It comes with our instruments to perform their parameter settings, to clearly display production measurements and the detected defects, and to generate real-time parameters and record all the measurements and events in a data base.
The PROD version has been developed for IN-LINE wire & cable measurements. Adjustment of tolerances, and a triggering threshold are specific features for the production environment.
Our dedicated accessories
SWB-005 : Standard Rod Box
4 standard rods in one box to cover the diameter range of the LPS005. The SWB allows customers to periodically check the stability of their instruments (quality control procedure).

Wire and Cable extrusion
Extrusion is a process used to create objects with a fixed cross-sectional profile. A material is pushed through a die with the desired cross-section.
