The design includes no moving parts and an LED light source rendering constant calibration due to motor wear and laser degradation unnecessary. The rugged structure and built in air purge units provide stable measurement and inspection for extended periods of time.
By eliminating the polygon mirror and motor, both of which are
subject to severe wear during normal operation, a structure without
any moving parts is achieved. This significantly reduces the
Equipped with the IP67 rated enclosure and the air purge unit as standard, the LS-9000 Series ensures safe, long-term use in varied environments.
The fastest-in-class high-speed sampling at a rate of 16000 samples/sec. and the combination of the delay function and OUT calculation function make it possible for "outer diameter measurement" and "lump and neck down detection" to be performed on a single system, reducing initial and running costs. In the past, each of these required its own system.
The LS-9006D/LS-9030D calculates and displays the difference in
measured values between two data points on the moving target: data
point 1 that is currently being measured and data point 2 that was
previously measured. (*Delay function + OUT calculation function)
The small gradual variations in outer diameter can be ignored to detect emergent surface defects only.
[Emergent surface defects = Data point 1 – Data point 2]
Many times the outer diameter can grow or shrink over time making Lump and Neck Down detection difficult. The LS-9000 Series eliminates this problem by filtering out gradual changes in measurement while measuring the defects.
The average outer diameter and centre position of wire can be measured with a high accuracy of ±0.5 μm.
With the fastest sampling rate in its class of 16000 samples/sec., this micrometer can simultaneously perform both outer diameter measurement and lump and neck down detection at a pitch of around 1 mm on a target travelling down the line at a speed of 1000 m/min.
With the new revolutionary measurement principle and standard air purge units, accurate measurements are possible in harsh environments.
