TOPIC: Thickness

Thickness 1 year, 3 months ago #1808

We want to control thickness and diameter of automotive wire in line extruder. What instruments can we use for measuring wall thickness and diameter.

Thanks with best regards.

Hello rahm,

Take a look Zumbach Instruments AG (Switzerland) Of particular interest is the UMACĀ® Wall Thickness Measurement which uses ultrasonics. This, combined with laser diameter monitors, will give you all you need to know.

Sikora AG (Germany) also has an X-ray/ laser diameter monitor system for automotive wire called Ecocontrol

We suggest that you study the information carefully on the Internet before contacting each of them directly with your minimum requirements.

It should be mounted with a lump and neck down detector. That will regulate the other instrumentation when very unusual measurements occur.
