When looking for the best way to measure width, there are a number of important factors to consider, including the shape of the target, the type of measurement system, and the installation environment. Selecting equipment that doesn't adequately meet your needs can lead to insufficient precision and increased man-hours during production. This site is designed to help those looking for a width measurement system discover the best way to perform measurement with confidence.
2D Cross-sectional area and width measurements can be easily performed.
The width of locations where laser light does not penetrate through can also be measured since the measurement system is a reflective model. The width of the specified location can be measured correctly even if the target shifts out of position to the left or right.
Measurement of wide targets
Example Application: Width measurement of building material boards
Width is measured by passing a target between two sensor heads.
The end face of the target must be an area wider than the measurement spot. Optical-axis alignment or span adjustment are important to ensure that A+B is fixed even if there is workpiece run-out to the left or right.
