Width and Gap Measurement Posted in: AccuProfile 820 Laser Scanner – Tags: Gap Measurement, Width Measurement
A customer has an application where they need width and gap measurement of a woven material very accurately as it is being made. The customer decided to use the Acuity AP820-80 laser line sensor that projects a laser line of 580 points across a laser line of a 2.5″ length. The laser line is able to measure the width of the tape as it is being moved under the laser line. Accuracies of better than +/- 0.002″ are being made at 100 laser line profiles a second on the moving target.
The AP820 laser line sensor models use a CCD camera that is very good at making difficult target measurements and performs very well on almost all surfaces automatically.

The AP820 2D laser scanner series offer a large selection of case sizes, measuring ranges, and diode/accessory options to be used in a wide range of measurement applications. The 2D/3D sensor performs very well on shiny or jagged targets and in environments with high ambient light. The sensor’s auto gain and high dynamic range allow for measurement in complex applications, even edge scanning on sharp targets.
