Beta LaserMike Publishes Whitepaper on Non-Contact Length and Speed Measurement for Converters

Whitepaper reveals how the LaserSpeed non-contact encoder is playing a major role in shaping tomorrow’s converting industry to improve productivity, quality, and bottom line

Online PR News – 25-November-2010 – – Dayton, Ohio – Beta LaserMike, a leading global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, today announced that it is making available its whitepaper, “Introduction to Non-Contact, Laser-Based Technology for Measuring Length and Speed in Converting Industries.” The whitepaper reveals how and why converters from a cross-section of industries are replacing mechanical measurement methods with highly accurate, non-contact length and speed measurement systems, such as Beta LaserMike’s LaserSpeed, to avoid costly product over-shipments, shortages, and waste.

Topics covered in the whitepaper include:
• Examination of the converting industry’s need for accurately measuring length and speed
• Comparison of common mechanical approaches for measuring length and speed
• Thorough discussion of the LaserSpeed non-contact laser measurement technology
• Case studies illustrating the use of the LaserSpeed non-contact measurement technique across a variety of typical conversion process applications
• Return on Investment (ROI) analysis with example pay-back calculation to support the business case for accurate length and speed measurements
