Precise detection of length and speed on wood and construction materials

Precision and reliability regarding length and speed control is key for reliable and efficient manufacturing and processing in the wood and construction materials industry. Even slightest deviations may cause added material costs, which quickly add up. Here, the high-precision sensor technology of LSV Laser Surface Velocimeters come into play, providing reliable measurement data with a non-contact operating principle.

Polytec's LSV Laser Surface Velocimeters are optical sensors for in-line integration that have been specially designed for high-precision velocity and length measurement in production environments. These optical sensors provide reliable measurement data as integral part of your process control systems. Using optical length and speed sensors from Polytec means increasing precision and thereby increasing the quantity and quality of your output. Your advantages: The non-contact measurement technique of Polytec LSV works on almost all surfaces without causing any damage. From cutting length control in glass wool right through to length measurement for roofing materials – Polytec systems ensure that you obtain the perfect configuration for every application.
