13/06/2024 – Sikora expands its portfolio with the new “LM Smart”

Smart length measurement of wires and cables

The “LM Smart” stands for smart length measurement, and it expands Sikora’s product range with an innovative length measuring device. The system measures lengths without contact and with extraordinary accuracy of 0.05%. Compared to conventional contact-based solutions, there is no slippage or wear. Once the device has been configured, no further calibration is required. The “LM Smart” measures accurately and reliably over time.

Length measuring devices are used to ensure that the required wire or cable length is accurate. Short or excess length leads to yield losses. If the production length is reduced by just 0.1%, the “LM Smart” length measuring device pays for itself in just a few months.

The “LM Smart” is based on the market-proven laser doppler measuring method and therefore functions largely independent of the color, surface quality and diameter of the product. Two laser beams are used to direct light onto the passing product surface. The beams overlap and create a stripe pattern on the object, from which the speed and thus the product length traveled over time is precisely determined.

The “LM Smart” offers precise length measurement and ensures that the required product length is maintained. Thanks to its very compact design, this device can be easily integrated into existing lines. No slippage, no maintenance and only a single calibration. This impressive system ensures smooth, continuous measurement independent of the material, which allows for use on many different products. The long service life also ensures maximum availability of the LM SMART.
