RIFTEK has introduced the Width Measurement System developed specifically for non-contact measurement of the width of sheet materials like boards, plates, tapes, etc. It is an autonomous hardware and software system that features optical micrometers and an indication device.
The parameters of the system can be modified according to a particular task.
Note: System parameters can be changed for a specific task.
The measurement method is based on the use of Optical Micrometers (Micrometer), which measure the position of edges of sheet material.
Depending on the width of the object, two versions of the system are possible: the system with one micrometer (the working range of the micrometer is greater than the width of the object), Scheme #1, and the system with two micrometers (the width of the object is greater than the working range of the micrometer), Scheme #2.
