Position / Length
At automatic cutting machines, e.g. for cables, steel pipes and profiles, the absolute material length is displayed and measured up to a predefined value. When the target length is reached, a saw impulse is triggered to cut the material. After the cutting process, the length detection starts again. The detection of positions is another field of application for these devices, which is used in testing and measuring tables. This also applies to all types of processing machines such as saws, milling machines with feed, punching, cutting and grinding machines.
