Zumbach Electronics has launched a new MSD measuring head series and swivel floor stand for on-line diameter and ovality measurement and control. The series is designed for applications such as extruded tubes, pipes, hoses, and cables. This new line complements the high-precision laser diameter measuring heads of the group’s ODAC series. The “Linear Sensor Technology” permits compact and accurate measuring heads.
The MSD features two-coloured LED light sources, allowing simultaneous scanning on each axis (X and Y), thus offering simple measurement accounting for product vibration.
Integrated extraneous light filters prevent the occurrence of measurement errors often deemed ‘unavoidable’ on previous systems, according to Zumbach.
Reflective surfaces can also be measured thanks to the use of varied coloured lighting for each measurement axis.
