Inline Measurement Systems Exhibits Beta LaserMike’s Non-Contact Measurement Solutions at Interplas

Beta LaserMike’s non-contact diameter gauges, length and speed encoders, and process control instrumentation provide British plastics manufacturers with bottom-line advantages

Online PR News – 31-July-2011 – – Birmingham, UK – Beta LaserMike, a leading global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, will be exhibiting its latest non-contact measurement solutions for plastics manufacturing in the Precision Extrusion Technologies booth (#B55) at the upcoming Interplas 2011 conference in Birmingham, UK. Interplas 2011 runs from September 27 - 29. Precision Extrusion Technologies is a partnership between UK-based InLine Measurement Systems and Ireland-based Padraic Lunn Enterprises Ltd.

Attendees to Interplas 2011 will see first-hand the many advantages of using Beta LaserMike’s non-contact gauges for accurately measuring the length and speed, and diameter, of their products during production. “We’re looking forward to showing plastics manufacturers how Beta LaserMike’s non-contact measurement solutions can help them improve quality, boost productivity, and reduce manufacturing costs,” says Steve Foy, Regional Manager for Inline Measurement Systems, UK & Ireland. “Beta LaserMike’s systems offer a number of unique advantages over contact-type measurement methods and other competitive non-contact gauging systems. We encourage attendees to stop by our booth and see a live demo of this technology.”

InLine Measurement Systems will exhibit Beta LaserMike’s LaserSpeed® non-contact encoder for measuring the length and speed of products. This measurement solution delivers better than +/-0.05% accuracy, making it an ideal solution for replacing error-prone, high-maintenance contact tachometers. The latest version of this gauge, the LaserSpeed 9000, detects both forward and reverse direction and zero speed.

InLine Measurement Systems will also exhibit Beta LaserMike’s AccuScan diameter gauge, the AS5000 series. The most recent evolution of this gauge, the AS5000 series, offers more than twice the measurement rate at 2400 measurements per second with unique facet calibration for high accuracy, single-scan measurement data.

The company will also exhibit Beta LaserMike’s DataPro system. This simple-to-operate process controller and data management system continuously monitors product dimensions and automatically controls the line to keep production processes and product quality under control.
