Freedom Technologies Laser Micrometer Quadraline Series
The Quadraline series is designed to control the two dimensions of extruded or rolled products featuring rectangular-like cross section profiles. Metal straps, plastic profiles and ribbon cables are examples of the products which can be measured with the Quadraline series. Two different models are available in the Quadraline series, the Quadraline 13xy and Quadraline 35xy. The measurement ranges are 13 x 13 and 35 x 35mm. Repeatability for the 13mm micrometer is ± 0.2μm (0.000008”).
The Quadraline software enables the measurement of the two dimensions of rectangular shaped extrusions and automatic process regulation. The “quad” laser micrometer utilizes the vibration of the part to compute the required two minimum measurements.The process regulation module can be used to regulate the individual axis by enabling speed control or maintaining the distance between rolling rolls. Likewise the statistics module performs the necessary standard industry statistics.
All of the necessary process control, regulation, and statistical features are included in the standard or optional software modules available with both the Extruline and Quadraline series.
