Case 1: Outer Diameter Measurement of Wires

Industry Transport/Metals Industry
Application Outer Diameter Measurement of Wires
Model Adopted

Previously, We used laser micrometers to measure the outer diameter of wires. Our problem was that large measurement errors occurred whenever the wires shook, so we contacted KEYENCE.
They explained the cause of the errors, and helped us set up a test of the LS-9000 optical micrometer on our line. It was very successful, so we switched to it.

Testimonial

Thank you for using KEYENCE products.
One of the characteristics of the LS-9000 Series is its sampling rate, which is the fastest in its class at 16,000 samples per second. The high-speed exposure of the LS-9000 Series ensures that wires are identified clearly even when they shake, which enables highly precise measurements.

Case 2: Outer Diameter Measurement of Spark Plugs

Industry Transport/Metals Industry
Application Outer Diameter Measurement of Spark Plugs
Model Adopted

Prior to sintering, the ceramics are soft, which means that they may be scratched by micrometers. In addition, there are many measurement points, so inspections took a long time.
The TM-3000 Series measures the outer diameters of multiple points at the same time in a non-contact manner, which was a big help.

Thank you for using KEYENCE products.
The TM-3000 Series can measure up to 16 points at the same time. Performing the measurements before sintering leads to increased yield and decreased costs.

Case 3: Outer Diameter Measurement after Extrusion Forming

Industry Resin and Rubber Industry
Application Outer Diameter Measurement after Extrusion Forming
Model Adopted

We were using micrometers to perform random inspections, but it's been a long term goal to perform 100% inspections. We've struggled to implement 100% inspections due to steam generation in the area creating a difficult environment, but after being introduced to the LS-9000, we decided to test it.
The LS-9000 was able to perform measurements without any problems even when left to run for a long period of time, so we installed it.

Testimonial

Thank you for using KEYENCE products.
The air purge can be used to enable stable measurements in poor environments such as those in which steam and dust are present. The LS-9000 Series is equipped with an air purge unit, which provides the LS-9000 Series with its environmentally resistant design.
