Wire diameter and ovality - offline measurement : For what purpose?

Used as a stand-alone version by many fine wire manufacturers, and associated with a range of dedicated accessories, the LDS allows operators to control the quality of their production or incoming products.Since no wire is perfectly round, a simple single or dual-axis measurement system is too limiting.If you really look for a full characterization of your wire shape by knowing its ovality and roundness, the diameter must be measured in many directions around the wire. To prevent the wire or sensor from rotating around the wire, CERSA MCI has developed a special tool for laboratories to keep the wire sample straight and taut. A system of cranks and geared pulleys then allows this sample to be rotated in the LDS laser beam. Equipped with this accessory, called WSR, it becomes a complete solution for measuring wires and cables up to 450µm over 360°. Many details are available: average diameter, min and max diameter, ovality. All these values can then be stored, printed or used for statistical analysis using our CIM software.


- Sample wire analysis after drawing

- Quality control (incoming inspection)

- Periodic die control (indirect measurement)

Our software solution for diameter and ovality offline measurement

CIM LAB software

Our advanced CIM PC software is a complete quality management tool for technicians. It comes with our instruments for their parameter settings, and enables you to to clearly display production measurements as well as any defects detected , to generate real-time parameters and to record all the measurements and events in a data base.

The LAB version is specially made for wire sample measurement and data management, classifying samples by customizable fields, keeping records and generating reports, as well as extracting the data to.csv file. All are useful features for laboratory applications.


Our dedicated accessories

SWB-1 : Standard Wire Box

4 standard wires in one box to cover the diameter range of each LDS. The SWB allows customers to check periodically the stability of their instruments (quality procedure).
