ECOGAUGE Cold Processes - Solutions

Various Measuring Solutions

For the measurement of gaps or position
The ECOGAUGE can be applied where a gap or slit instead of a diameter needs to be measured. In addition to diameter information the position of an object within the measuring field can be detected.

Detecting the presence of an object
The measurement signal includes information about the presence of an object in addition to the dimensional and positional data.
The information can be of general use in the process control or specifically useful for following the progress of material with a further benefit of eliminating the need for other sensors.

For peeling, grinding, polishing, etc.
For processes, where large amounts of abrasion, emulsion, etc. are present, ECOGAUGE represents an ideal solution. The air purging assembly is optionally applicable.
