Tag: Product Release

Precise knowledge of length and current speed is a key cost and process optimization factor in the production of sheet goods and cables. Wear and slip push material costs up, but companies today can no longer afford to produce rejects.  Quality is in demand – From the outset.

The LSV 1000/2000 velocimeters from ZUMBACH ideally support manufacturers when monitoring quality in steel, cable, wire and tubing production. They exceed the performance of conventional contact-based measuring methods, at the same time offering maximum robustness with minimized maintenance requirements and costs.

The compact device provides length and velocity data quickly and reliably for both process ...

Tag: Product Release

Many companies producing material to be wound are familiar with this situation: Although spools of the same dimensions are used, their individual dimensions are not exactly identical. Minimal size deviations lead to an uneven winding pattern or even tangling. The result: Increased manual adjustment work – a cost item you could do without. What are the options for manufacturers to solve these problems?

The ideal solution would be an autonomous monitoring system so the operator can be sure the material is wound evenly from start to end. When searching for such a reliable monitoring and control system, you will inevitably hit the FA II Flange Detecting System manufactured by Joachim Uhi ...
