A large steel producer makes products in various shapes and sizes. Laser sensors measure the position of the end relative to the distance to a saw blade.Continue reading
Lumber mills are taking advantage of the high speed and high accuracy AR2000 sensor for sorting applications. As lumber is moved down the conveyor line, sensor length measurements are made on each board in less than two seconds.Continue reading
When drilling down for oil and gas, the drill tower and drill are attached to a piece of pipe. One customer has used the internal module of the AR2500 laser sensor to notify workers to attach the next pipe to continue to drill deeper into the ground.Continue reading
Laser rangefinders are used to measure the length of lumber to ensure that the boards are cut to the correct length. While other methods of end-tallying lumber rely on human judgment or estimations, using laser measurement sensors guarantees that boards are measured and cut with extreme accuracy.Continue reading
Laser rangefinders can be mounted at the top of silos and aimed down at the surface to measure the fill level of the material in the silo. Due to the long operating range of the sensors, Acuity’s laser rangefinders are suitable for nearly any silo size.Continue reading
Acuity’s rangefinders are used at sawmills to measure the width of lumber boards while sorting on a conveyor line. A customer has an AR1000 laser distance sensor mounted in line with the board and housed under a higher conveyor area approximately 10 feet away.Continue reading
Laser sensors are commonly used in steel hot mills because they need an accurate, non-contact method of determining the position or dimensions of materials that are too hot to touch. Many of Acuity’s customers are OEM integrators who service the specialized needs of the Steel and Aluminum Mill customers.Continue reading
