Features of laser measurement systems
When you are choosing a laser measurement system to use in your facility, it is important to consider just what applications you will be using it for so you can find the brand and model that will work best for you. What size do you need and how often will you be using it? Is a single machine all you need?
How laser measurement systems work
The laser measurement systems are noncontact, so they do not damage the material they are measuring. In addition, they can work on complex shapes just as quickly as they can on simple shapes. They work for metal, wood, ceramic, plastic, wire, and more. The system fires the laser at the piece and then uses the reflected light to make measurements.
Using these types of systems offers some benefits. It can improve the quality of the products, and because they measure quickly, they can improve the production. The results are in real time in most cases, and will allow you to have a 100% inspection of the product. They can also help to reduce the cost of rework and material that you have to scrap. There are countless applications where the laser measurement systems can be a benefit.
