QTM Le – Length Measurement
The QTM Le non-contact length module is available to incorporate into a QTM stack of modules. Using the QTM0PC device it uses the existing infrastructure and communication system on the QTM stack.
The results are returned on the 0PC touch screen user-interface as rod length in millimetres to two decimal places. To improve traceability of results the 0PC records not only the individual measured results but also batch statistics, time and date of measurement, the operator, maker identifier and the brand selected.
Data is stored in an Access ODBC compliant database and can be exported in a simple CSV file which allows easy import into statistical and mathematical programs such as MS Excel and Minitab.
The QTM Le laser based non-contact length is an addition to the QTM family range providing a high precision length measurement capability and is easily integrated in to a QTM stack.
Using a laser detection system with precision rod positioning, the unit gives an accuracy of measurement to +/- 0.01mm and accommodates a product range from 50mm to 160mm and diameters in the ranges 5.1mm to 8.3mm. The unit comes with it’s own controlling software, the QTM0PC that controls and reports results from all the QTM measurement modules in a stack (e.g. Individual weight, PD, circumference etc.). A high precision certificated set of length standards are supplied for calibration purposes.
To ensure that a representative measurement is made and not that of a high point, the sample is rotated during multiple measurements, a method that is fully compatible with the Chinese standard GB/T 22838.2-2009.
