Web edge control in the production of plasterboards
For the automatic cutting of plasterboards, the correct feeding of the boards is crucial for dimensional accuracy. For the detection of the web edges, optoCONTROL laser micrometers are used, which are mounted at the edges of the transport web. The micrometers continuously measure the web edge and detect skewed incoming sheets, which are then brought into the correct position. Thanks to the large measuring range and the high measuring rate, the laser micrometers can be integrated in a process-safe manner.
